Stan Harvey/ Livable
Communities Initiatives Unfortunately, the deadline for applications
for 2003 was November
Urban Collage 2002. There is still one
million $$ available in each of the next two years.
Stan felt that if theBeltline becomes a reality that we
would have an excellent shot at receiving a grant. Without the
Beltline, it may be a long shot.
501C3 status is imperitive.
The Georgia Aquarium may have applied
an LCI grant.
Stan recommended that we look into applying for
additional funds, such as the Atlanta Neighborhood Development
Partnership (ANDP) and the Browns Fund. (Margaret Shulke
is the ANDP is the director.)
The other recommendation from Stan
is that we become very explicit and specific as to our main goals,
i.e.,development standards, streetscapes, housing development.
Then we need to put a package together that represents our vision.
The next step is to secure seed money from local businesses/institutions
to show that we have their support. He also recommended
Elka Davidson, a consultant on city planning. There
were lots of comments made by the group during this discussion.
My notes get kind of sketchy here and I apologize that I did not
get them all written down.
