As many in the media have recently reported, a new stadium is a chance for Atlanta to do things right and above all, do no harm to the surrounding communities.  We are asking your help in preserving our Historic Neighborhood for the Arts from becoming a sea of asphalt. Parking lots are a PROHIBITED USE.  

Castleberry Hill was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985 and became a City of Atlanta Landmark District in 2006. We are the oldest surviving warehouse district in the state.  It is INCONSISTENT with this zoning to allow surface street parking lots and that is reflected in our current zoning that PROHIBITS street for hire parking.  

Vote NO to a Developer's request Z-13-045 and any other requests that come before you that will dramatically change the character of our neighborhood and cause substantial detriment to the public good and impair the purpose and intent of the Zoning Ordinance of the City of Atlanta.  

The landmark legislation pased by Atlanta City Council in 2006 stated, "The city finds there is a need to protect existing and developing neighborhood areas and building forms from the incompatible uses resulting from intense highway-oriented development and to preserve and restore existing, traditional and pedestrian scale buildings in established, historic neighborhood districts, as well as create new pedestrian oriented commercial nodes. The city finds that there is a substantial need to encourage a balanced mix of uses to include proportionately significant residential uses and to facilitate safe, attractive and convenient pedestrian circulation. The city finds that it is necessary to improve air quality by promoting walking and reducing the number of vehicular trips. "

Please live up to those words and vote NO on any zoning changes to permit park for hire lots.
