On Monday, Oct. 29, 2012, residents of Glenwood Park, Grant Park, Ormewood Park, East Atlanta and other surrounding neighborhoods will attend a rally to express their concerns about Fuqua Development's planned "Glenwood Place" project and its decision to include a 155,000-square-foot, big box retailer as an anchor tenant in a new urban development neighborhood that was specifically created to reduce traffic and increase walkability.
Objections to the planned development at 800 Glenwood Ave. include but are not limited to failure to comply with the BeltLine Overlay District, the potential for excessive traffic on residential two-lane roads and the potential adverse environmental impact.
The rally is scheduled for 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. in Brasfield Square at 933 Garrett St. in Glenwood Park.
