Brook Park Capital Improvements


Doraville has a great resource in its parks. The Northwoods neighborhood is particularly blessed because it has two beautiful ones - Brook and Autumn.  The city's 2015 Parks Master Plan actually identifies Brook Park as the fourth most used park in the city's system, but it's also the one that has seen the least investment.

The city has budgeted $30,000 this year to be spent on Northwoods parks. Because of the severe lack of investment over the years, the council has agreed to spend this money on improvements for Brook Park.

Council Member Naser and I are looking for input from the community on the best way to use this money. We have been given some time at the next NANA (Northwoods Area Neighborhood Association) membership meeting to present some options.

The meeting's being held at 6:30pm on Tuesday, April 17th at Church of the New Covenant (3330 Chestnut Drive).  I hope we'll see you there! 
Bengali New Year

On April 1, Council Member MD Naser invited me to the Bengali New Year celebration called "Boishakhi Mela." This was a fun event in Gwinnett county that featured the food, music and dance of Bangladesh. 

I met a number of people there who live or work in Doraville, and enjoyed myself tremendously.

Northwoods Historic District Street Sign Toppers


The Northwoods Area Neighborhood Association (NANA) has been working on a project to design, raise funds for, and install toppers that would go on street signs in the Northwoods neighborhood. The design has been finalized, and a significant portion of funds have been raised, so the next step for them is to get permission from the city to install these signs in the neighborhood. 

Funding and installation costs would be taken care of by NANA, as would any future maintenance costs. The designs have been voted on by residents in the neighborhood, and there is a lot of excitement around this project. Because of this, and at the request of NANA, I plan to bring the question about gaining permission for this installation of these signs in front of the full council for approval.

I'm personally excited about this project, and happy to support the residents of Northwoods in this endeavor. If you are interested in contributing to the project, you can do so by following this link. 

Adopt a Spot


This month, the city will be rolling out a new program called "Adopt a Spot." This will give civic-minded residents who are focusing on beautifying their neighborhoods a mechanism for getting support from the city. 

More information will be given at the April 9th city council work session. You can also sign up for the city's newsletter at this link to get more information as it comes out. 

Spotlight on Buford Highway: Tea House Formosa

We are extremely lucky in Doraville to have so many great food options. Restaurants based here frequently make the "Best of" lists for Metro Atlanta. One of these that I have been meaning to go to for a while is Tea House Formosa - ever since I saw it featured in Atlanta Magazine. 
 
We stopped by one weekend in March, and really enjoyed both the atmosphere as well as the tea and snacks. B.J. and I shared taro fries and a banana bread muffin. They were both excellent (the muffin was still hot). We also each had a milk tea that was very good (he got ginger, I got hazelnut). This is a really nice spot along Buford Highway, and I’m planning to make it one of my “regular” places.
