This is a reminder that our monthly meetings will start back up next Tuesday, August 9 – 6:30 p.m. in the Woodward Chapel.  We have a lot of new faces in our community – we need to meet them and get them involved.  Please plan to attend and bring a neighbor!  We have a great line up of upcoming events and need your participation.

This is your city, your community – be informed, speak up, and let’s make a difference in College Park.  We already have a city that is comprised of incredible people doing great things.  Check out the new mural on Harvard and Main Street, Rev Coffee Shop or the Gallery on Harvard! The future of College Park is bright – more so than ever before!

Let’s become a city not divided by Wards but a city filled with concerned citizens who no longer will settle for status quo. Let’s work together to become a progressive city that thrives on greatness and put “Atlanta’s best kept secret . . . College Park” on the radar for all to see!

I’m excited!  See you Tuesday!

Pool Party and more…


Pool Party – This Sunday 7/17

Join us for fun in the sun this Sunday, July 17th from 2:00 – 5:00 pm at the Conley Center Pool (College St across from Football Stadium). 

Hot dogs, hamburgers and the “fixins” will be provided, please bring a side dish or dessert and beverage to share.  This is a great time

to spend with family and neighbors!   See you Sunday!




 NNO Flyer

You guys are awesome at helping with community events.  Your support through volunteering and donations is always overwhelming and this is what makes our community great!  We have another opportunity to “give back” to the community on August 2.  Please see the attached flyer regarding how we can help our police with National Night Out.  This is an annual family event that is celebrated nationwide.  It gives the police an opportunity to meet the residents and for us to meet them.  They also give away free food to the community. We can help by volunteering to help give out food. 


Please let me know if you are able to help on August 2.  The event is held on Main Street in front of the College Park Auditorium.  As volunteers, we’ll need to arrive at 5:00 p.m. to help with the event which starts at 6:00 and goes to 9:00 p.m.  Let’s work together to

show our support for our police department.  Even if you can’t stay all that time, please come and stay as long as you can.


Hope to see you at the Pool and at National Night Out!

May/June Events


MAY 17 – HCPNA Feeds Police and Firemen

To have a successful event, regardless of the nature, you need a team!  A great team who works together regardless of the task!  We had such a team when we fed the Police and Firemen on May 17.   We enjoyed a wonderful day feeding our incredible police and firemen.  They were both hungry and very grateful!  I’d like to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to each of you who volunteered to help setup and serve the day of the event and for those who made donations whether it was hamburger buns, desserts, or drinks.    A very special thanks to Anna and Sam Wheeler for smoking and pulling the pork and for making the cole slaw for very tasty BBQ sandwiches, as well as to the Pig & Pint, Ashley’s Delights, State Farm Insurance and Chick-fil-A Dwarf House for their donations!  Great team work!


Here’s an important message from Jack Wyrick

The opening is happening on June 9 from 7-10pm. I’ve attached the flyer for the show so you can have a visual for your announcement. And I’d love it if people would register for a free ticket on Eventbrite. The link is here:

Thank you so much! We already sold out of tickets once, so I added 50 more. If anyone has trouble getting a ticket, please have them email me at  Best, Jack.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the loss of one of our shining stars from the Police Force  Sgt. David Hough, who died in a fatal motorcycle accident yesterday.  Please remember his family and fellow officers.

During the months we don’t have meetings, we will keep you informed so you can plan your social calendar.  Thank you for making College Park so special!

Comprehensive Plan – 2nd Public Meeting


A second chance to update the Visual Preference Survey that we conducted at the meeting on November 10th.  We put it into Survey Monkey in hopes getting some additional responses.  I hate to bother you again, but could you send it out to your membership?  We can take responses until noon next Monday, December 14th, then we will have to close it in order to add any new responses to the results from the original meeting, and get the final results ready for presentation at the Community Design Workshop.  Here is the link:

While you’re at it, you can go ahead and send the link to the Community Survey!  I just received it from my colleague who was working on putting it into online format.  Here is the link:

Thanks again for all of your help!
