This is going to be a BUSY week! The Brookhaven Post and the Brookhaven Reporter have been doing a great job of getting information out on all of these applications, Thanks!!!!.
This week the Connolly 206 apartment mixed use development at the Tag office - Here is the link to that development: http://dresdenvillage.net/home/
and a link to the latest information on the Brookhaven Post: http://brookhavenpost.co/brookhaven-staff-approve-dresden-village-project-with-conditions/42127/
Marta has submitted their plans and will present to the Planning Commission on Sept 7th.. They feel that they have achieved a good balance and will be moving forward. I strongly suggest that you attend this meeting to get a good description of the plan, while Marta has made changes they are aware that the community might want to see some additional tweaks and the Planning Commission meeting will be the last opportunity to voice support or opposition before the City Council vote.. Save the dates: planning commission on Sept 7th and city council on Sept 23rd.
Next up we have the 121 apartment mixed use development at the corner of Dresden and Appalachee Drive (next to Haven). They have submitted and will be presenting to the city council on Wednesday, July 6th (wear red to the meeting if possible). They have scheduled a community meeting for Thursday June 23, 7 pm, University Baptist Church Dresden and Fernwood, where the Farmers Market ison Saturday's.(the same night as the Town Hall again). What has been submitted to the city is located here: http://www.brookhavenga.gov/home/showdocument?id=4426

Don't forget the fun stuff too!
Wednesday - Food Truck night at Blackburn Park
Friday - Dive In Movie "Minions" at Briarwood Pool
Saturday - Farmers Market, University Baptist on Dresden

It's a lot to keep up with and fit in to our busy lives but if you want to make sure that Brookhaven stays or becomes (depending on your opinion) what you want it to be, we need you to show up to the meetings and make sure your voice is heard!
If you can, we need some volunteers to get flyers to every home in the affected areas about the upcoming meetings - if you can commit to passing them out on your block or more please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
