6:15: Atlanta Main Street Fellowship
East Atlanta Business Association has been chosen for a 1 year Atlanta Main Street Fellowship program focusing on Economic Vitality, Promotion, Organization and Design.
National Program to guide economic development - we’re one of three selected (Sweet Auburn and Westview are the other two). Out of the planning and zoning office of the City of Atlanta. Between this and the City of Atlanta Placemaking grant, it’s over $20,000 for East Atlanta.
6:20: Historic District Listen. Learn. Q&A
East Atlanta Historic District Designation Presentation:Stephanie L. Cherry-Farmer, East Atlanta property owner and historic preservationist.
East Atlanta and the National Register of Historic Places
Over 4,000 properties
Big misconception - National Register (out of federal government) is not a regulatory organization - it recognizes our neighborhood’s history, but does not protect or regulate. Protection comes from a LOCAL Historic Designation under local zoning code.
Generally 50 years or older
Generally have retained historic integrity
One of 4 criteria (in presentation)
Stephanie can connect you with one of the tax credit specialists if there are further questions.
The credits are already available for application
Madison Theater Update: Bill Gould and Jennifer Murray
See for linked presentation for commercial opportunities and benefits of restoration
Correction to ‘Funding Sources’ slide - *20% of approved restoration costs*
Bill proposed a convo w/the EABA board and EACA - perhaps a focus group
