HUGE AMAZON FULLFILMENT DEVELOPMENT on Tilford Railyard.

Facebook Page: Traffic Safety in Westside Atlanta

Construction Already Underway

TPA Group has filed a site plan with NPU-D (our neighborhood planning unit in the City) showing the company’s plan to build a massive Amazon Fulfillment Center on the vacant CSX Tilford Rail Yard in the Hills Park Neighborhood.

A similar Amazon center in Bessemer, Alabama employs 1,500 regular and 2,200 contract workers.

That means potenitaly thousands of workers driving to and from work, causing unprecedented congestion on our streets in Hills Park and adjacent residential neighborhoods.

Two Entry/Exits on Marietta Road

TPA’s plan shows two auto curb cut entry/exits into the CSX Tilford Rail Yard site for the Amazon complex: one at the Marrieta Road bridge just south of the intersection of Marietta Road and Carroll Drive and one near the entrance to Dupont Commons on Marietta Road. This massive increase of traffic on Marietta Road will be a blight on our neighbourhoods.

Residential Land Use = Economic Vibrancy

In the last decade, development of residential land continues to grow.
The commitment to residential uses adds strength and stability to the tax base of the City.

The Westside Community welcomes new good-paying jobs into Atlanta with proper regulatory planning that includes firm guidance and control of the incoming employer’s facility design and layout, those jobs can be added without causing harm to the present Westside community and without diminishing the value of the personal investment already made here by individual property owners or diminishing the public safety of the area.

For These Reasons, We, the Undersigned Residents of the Westside Community
are delivering this petition to the City of Atlanta in order to demonstrate our common agreement that the City must use its legal authority to:

1. Cause all vehicular traffic from an Amazon Fulfilment Centre constructed
on the CSX Tilford Rail Yard site to be directed solely to Marietta Boulevard.

2. Prevent traffic entering or leaving an Amazon Fulfilment Centre constructed on the CSX Tilford Rail Yard site from utilizing Marietta Road for entry and exit. As daily users of Marietta Road, which is a winding country road with blind turns, we know that Marietta Road — the primary internal street in our neighborhood — cannot support heavy speeding traffic without endangering those who live here. Particularly 24/7, and at night.

The increased traffic will jeopardize the public safety of resident children, the elderly, dog walkers, joggers, cyclists, as well as any home owner on Marietta Road with a driveway there.

Because of the danger such traffic will impose on daily life here, the value
of our homes and the future liveability of the Westside community will be sig- nificantly diminished, we ask that the current plan not be approved unless all traffic in and out of the proposed Amazon development is banned from Marietta Road and directed away from it.
