Meeting to Discuss Rezoning of Vacant Bank-owned Parcel on Avondale Avenue - Thurs. May 29, 2013, 7 pm

From James Palmer on May 23, 2013 - 

Last night we took the zoning conditions to the NPU for the required vote.  They voted to move forward with the land use change for the property, but deferred the vote on the zoning conditions until June so that we could bring our conditions to all involved parties (BOHO, SAND, Land Use and Zoning committee for the NPU, etc…) for further review. 

I would like to convene a meeting a week from today, Thursday May 29th at 7:00 at the Church on Benteen, to discuss and answer questions. 

Thanks neighbors!

James Palmer
BOHO President

Please mark your calendars for Saturday morning April 27 from 9:30a until 12p or 1p. 

We are having our annual big clean-up and neighborhood maintenance day. We will be meeting at 9:30a this Saturday Morning at Calvary Church, corner of Benteen and Hamilton where we have our regular meetings.  If you can't make that time, please feel free to join us later; just look for us. 

Projects include: 
  • Cutting the greenways on Hamilton, Francis and Avondale 
  • Increasing visibility at certain intersections 
  • Picking up trash along the beltline tracks 
  • Cutting the lot at the corner of Francis and Boulevard 
Please let me know if you have any projects that you would like to see 
added to the list of things we can do together as a neighborhood.
This is our chance to beautify BOHO for the summer.  We need a clean and 
presentable environment for ourselves and the prospective residents who 
might be looking to live in our community.  Please participate for maximum 

Also, we will be removing old tires from the neighborhood and there an e-waste recycling pick-up at Turner Field.
See ya Saturday! 


SPECIAL Neighborhood Meeting About the Rezoning of Avondale Parcel - Thurs. April 4, 2013, 7 p.m.

posted Jan 3, 2013, 2:59 PM by BOHO Webmaster   [ updated Mar 31, 2013, 2:16 PM ]

At our last neighborhood meeting, we had an attorney representing the owners of the Avondale property present to discuss possible zoning changes to that parcel.  At this meeting we learned that the owners were amenable to signing off on any zoning designation that would change the property from an O-I (Office Institutional) to something a little more compatible with our neighborhood.  This is going to come before the NPU and the attorney has written and asked that the issue be deferred for now while we discuss this as a community.   

Right now I am setting a meeting for 4/4 at 7:00 at the Baptist Church where we normally have our regular meetings. This is an important meeting where we will hash out a plan/vision for the property in question.  

Thanks neighbors 

James Palmer

Neighborhood Clean-up & Beautification, Sat. April 21, 2012

posted Apr 10, 2012, 12:38 PM by BOHO Webmaster

Hi Neighbors...

It's Earth Day on April 21.  BOHO will be having a community clean-up in the morning starting at 9:30 AM (meeting at Calvary Church on the corner of Benteen and Hamilton.

We are looking for beautification projects we can do beyond picking up litter.  Please suggest.  

Some ideas:

Work around the community garden
Dig out the bus stop on Confederate at Edie
Weed and plant flowers at the Boulevard Heights sign on Confederate

Also, we will be collecting tires for the annual District 1 Tire roundup.  Please talk to your neighbors who might have tires to dispose.  We need to get as many tires out of the 'hood as possible.  This is a once a year opportunity.

Finally, we will be collecting e-waste for recycling.  You can leave your ewaste in front of your house on Saturday, the 21st and we will collect.

If anyone is able to volunteer a pick-up truck for the event, that would be great. 

We need a big turn-out of volunteers so we can really make a difference in the neighborhood this year.  Please mark the date on your calendar.  

Mark D.
