Portion of PATH400 Trail Certified as Atlanta Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary

A section of PATH400 in North Buckhead was recently designated an Atlanta Audubon Certified Wildlife Habitat as part of a collaborative effort between Atlanta Audubon Society, Livable Buckhead, and the North Buckhead Home and Garden Club. The Atlanta Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary Program encourages both private and public properties to enhance their land for birds and other wildlife by installing native plants and providing food, water, and shelter for birds and other wildlife. The certified section runs between Lenox Road and Old Ivy Road, and was the first completed segment of the trail, opened to the public in January 2015.

MW Final Plan 7_15_13Additional .56 acre brings opportunity to expand park along Nancy Creek, PATH400

Mountain Way Common, a developing park along the banks of Little Nancy Creek in north Buckhead, is kicking off 2018 by adding an important piece of land. Friends of Mountain Way Common and Livable Buckhead have announced that Mid Broadwell Partnership has generously donated a 0.56-acre parcel at the corner of N. Ivy Rd. and Mountain Dr., creating an opportunity to add new features to the park.

“The community has wanted to add this land to Mountain Way Common for years,” said Denise Starling, executive director of Livable Buckhead, which facilitated the donation. “Its location across the street from the main gateway makes it a perfect place to add a feature that invites people into the park and raises its overall visibility. We are really grateful to Mid Broadwell Partnership for this donation.”

Naughty or Nice?

Denise Starling, executive director of Livable Buckhead, gives us the dirt on PATH400 progress.
denise and will path400-smI have some great news to share with you today – it appears that PATH400 was on Santa’s NICE list this year! How do I know? Well, we just received the best kind of present – the one you never want to return – cold hard cash – and a lot of it! 

Just how much cash you might ask? (How rude – didn’t your Mama tell you it isn’t nice to talk about money?) Oh well – let’s be tacky anyway.

News – October 2017

 Sandy Springs Extension: Our neighbors to the north are moving forward on the design for the PATH400 connector between the original 5.2 miles in Buckhead and the part that goes through the middle of the 285/400 interchange. This 2.1 mile missing link will run from Loridans right through the former toll plaza and all the way up to Glenridge Drive. Sandy Springs residents got a peek at initial design concepts, and they were enthusiastic about PATH400 coming to their neighborhood. For more information on this part of PATH400 and to learn about public meetings, contact Dan Coffer

Construction update – October 2017

Great news! After several months of wearing people down with my best squeaky wheel routine, we have received approval from Norfolk Southern to get moving on the next phase, from Miami Circle to the back of Lenox Square. We still have to clear pre-construction meetings with both the railroad and MARTA and then you will see some good old fashioned dirt movin’ going on! We have also received our final approvals to move forward with construction on the Adina section from Lindbergh to Garson. We will build these two at the same time to maximize efficiencies.
