Opportunity for Event Planning With Atlanta Streets Alive

By Jess Windham, VHCA Board Vice President

DSC_0022Atlanta Bicycle Coalition (ABC) hosts another Atlanta Streets Alive this fall on the North Highland corridor through Virginia-Highland, Poncey-Highland, Inman Park and Old Fourth Ward. On September 25th, the street will be closed to cars and opened to people on foot or bicycle to explore the community in a safer, healthier and more livable way. 

To spark and guide local neighborhood participation, Atlanta Bicycle Coalition asks each neighborhood to provide an ambassador. This person engages with ABC in the weeks leading up to the event, meeting for an hour or two every few weeks. You’ll learn the game plan for the event and spread the word to the community about the event through any and all effective channels. 

More information on the event can be found here.

If you’re interested in having fun as VaHi’s Atlanta Streets Alive ambassador, please contact Haydee M Santana at Haydee@AtlantaBike.org and cc me at jlwindham@gmail.com

Streets Alive Returns to VaHi September 28

Save the date for the next Atlanta Streets Alive: Sunday, September 28 from 2-6 pm.

The route (see map below) is a 4.5 mile loop on N. Highland + Highland + Boulevard + North Avenue — similar to the one that drew over 83,000 Atlantans to run, walk, dance and play in the streets last year! Five amazing Atlanta neighborhoods, connected by open streets for all.
