NBCA October 2017 Opinion Survey

Neighborhood Opinion 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?

These links from various sources provide background information about 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?

Our October 2017 Opinion Survey includes these two topics as well as others that may concern you. The survey is being announced both in this newsletter and by email. We’ll publish all responses (fit to print) without identifying names or exact addresses.

 
We use survey software from the firm Constant Contact. It is very important to click FINISH at the end of the survey to record your opinions. If you don't click, your responses will be thrown away.

Second thing: if you take the survey from an email link, you can only use that email link once. If you need to restart your our survey, start it from this web site.
