Public meeting set Aug. 22 to discuss concept for new Old Ivy Park
The Aug. 22 meeting, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the gym of the Sarah Smith School’s Intermediate Campus, follows a series of public and stakeholder meetings and input from a steering committee on two previous that has resulted in a third concept that combines aspects of both.
Formal presentations of the conceptual plan for the park will be conducted at 6:30 and 7:30 p.m.
The project’s steering committee initially reviewed two concepts presented by consultant Carlos Perez of Perez Planning and Design and asked for aspects of both concepts to be combined into one vision—a third concept that brings it all together. That is what will be reviewed on Aug. 22.
Dist. 7 Atlanta City Councilman Howard Shook lead the efforts to acquire Old Ivy Park by a partnership of Atlanta’s Department of Parks and Recreation and nonprofit Livable Buckhead.
The 0.7-acea park will be located on Old Ivy Road at the junction with the recently completed phase one of the PATH400 multi-use trail. The park serves multiple community needs—as a point of interest for walkers and cyclists on PATH400, as well as a gathering spot and neighborhood park for North Buckhead residents.
