Since Atlanta voters agreed to raise sales taxes to fund more transit three years ago, MARTA and the city of Atlanta have been trying to reconcile a long list of projects with a short pile of cash. We don’t envy them. Nearly 20 years after the last rail stations were built, we need all the projects on the More MARTA list – improved bus service, crosstown bus rapid transit lines and light rail – and we need them now.

The City of Atlanta is divided into twenty-five Neighborhood Planning Units (NPUs), which are citizen advisory councils that make recommendations to the Mayor and City Council on zoning, land use, special events and other planning issues.

Get your sunburst... Everybody is doing it! This unofficial symbol of the neighborhood has been quite popular through the years as evidenced by the number of them that you see hanging from Grant Park homes. Sunbursts are pre-painted in yellow and blue and homeowners are encouraged to add their house numbers.

Kroger will donate money to GPNA, now you must annually renew your Plus Card! Also select Grant Park Neighborhood Association Inc @AmazonSmile.
