NBCA October 2017 Opinion Survey
Survey—Tell Us What You Think
Periodically, NBCA asks residents how they feel about current issues. This issue
we’re asking about two topics that we haven’t explored in much detail: The Park
Over 400 proposal and MARTA’s role in North Buckhead.
Park Over 400
This is a proposal approved in a 4-3 vote by the Buckhead Community Improvement
District (BCID) board for a new park. It would be a major gathering space built
in the space above GA 400. It would be big, extending north-south half a mile
between Lenox Road and Peachtree Road. It would be very expensive; cost
estimates mention amounts around a quarter of a billion dollars! Most people
wonder who’s going to provide that kind of money (and hope it’s someone else).
Some think it somehow won’t make our traffic congestion worse. Others wonder how
that could possibly be. But, it would definitely raise Buckhead’s profile, so do
these issues matter?

Park Over 400:
MARTA’s role in North Buckhead
Last fall, Atlanta voters approved a 40-year sales tax increase to fund
improvements to MARTA within the city limits. Some are excited about this
initiative helping to address one of the city’s biggest problems: traffic.
Others wonder if North Buckhead will see any benefits at all. We want to explore
your thoughts about MARTA. Would you ride MARTA if the “last mile” issues in
North Buckhead were addressed? Or, is there nothing that you can think of that
would get you on a MARTA bus or train?
