“The Jewel of ATL” – New Mural by George F. Baker III in Adair Park II

“My latest mural in Adair Park II called “The Jewel of ATL”. It is meant to christen the joy of play that is found in Adair Park. A place where the community creates and fosters nothing but a joyful energy throughout everyone that comes here.” – George F. Baker III (@gfb3)

SafeAuto gifted a mural in collaboration with local artist, George F. Baker III, to the Adair Park neighborhood in July 2021.

Picnic & Live Mural Painting – June 5th

Mark your calendars and invite your neighbors! Adair Park is being gifted a mural by local artist George F. Baker III and SafeAuto. Join the artist and your neighbors for an afternoon of creativity and community. Come to Adair Park II on June 5th from noon to 2pm to see the mural in progress, and enjoy free food from La Bodega and music by Kebbi Williams. Find the event page on Facebook for latest updates.

The event is hosted by Muros, compliments of SafeAuto who have a mission to foster trust and keep communities safe. Their gift of this beautiful piece of art and community gathering represents and celebrates our collective values, beauty and compassion for one another.

Just bring a blanket or lawn chair and a neighbor to enjoy the day!

About the artist: This artist is a Nebraska-born, Detroit-grown, and Atlanta-raised creator. Using his instruments of design, illustration and production, he employs a playful spirit to engage the inner-child we all have. Currently, he is the Creative Director of Foster, a studio-collective striving to make people unafraid to play.

February Meeting Follow-Up

Hi Neighbors! After our packed meeting on Tuesday, Adair Park Today has several items to report on.

The most discussed vote of the meeting, regarding the accessory structure at Academy Lofts, passed 43 to 12 in favor of supporting the variance. There is an Urban Design Commission (UDC) meeting on February 10, 2021 at 4:00 pm – we expect this variance to be discussed there although it is not on the agenda document. Please view the agenda for virtual participation instructions.

We also want to make sure that everyone is up to date on membership. If you believe that you have a 2021 membership in Adair Park Today, please check our updated membership list to make sure your name appears correctly. If you are a business owner and not a property owner or resident, make sure that your membership appears under the business name. Contact treasurer@adairpark.com to address any issues.

You can find the meeting minutes from our February 2nd meeting here. As always, please review these to stay informed and prepared for future meetings!

Review plans for Academy Lofts accessory structure

Greetings neighbors! At our February 2nd meeting, we will review and vote on a proposed variance to allow the Academy Lofts property (the former Adair School building) to construct “an accessory structure used for covered outdoor seating” to be located behind the main building, adjacent to the sidewalk on Catherine St. The outdoor seating will be for a planned coffee shop on the site.

Please review the attached documents showing the variance application, proposed design of the structure, and the overall site plans for the property (which differ from what currently exists). These documents are linked below. However, please note that we are expecting revised documents on Monday, February 1st, which will be posted here when received.

If you have comments on the proposal, please be prepared to make a brief comment at the Adair Park Today meeting on the 2nd, or email your comments to the Historic Preservation and Code Enforcement committee at code@adairpark.com.

Help Plan Our Biggest Fundraiser!

Porches and Pies is Adair Park’s annual fundraising event, bringing together neighbors, chefs, and community members from across the city. Most years, we enjoy a day in the park with delicious pie, tunes, beer, an artist market, and kids activities. Bakers bring their best recipes to the table to be critiqued by professional judges, and attendees cast their vote for People’s Choice pie.

All proceeds benefit Adair Park Today and its programs, including housing relief, senior network, and youth outreach.

In 2020, we pivoted from a festival format to a bake sale. With social distancing, masks, and other safety measures in place, we sold pre-boxed pies with curbside pickup. Funds raised supported our programs at a most crucial time, allowing us to support neighbors in need at the height of the pandemic.

We Need You!

Whether you’ve lived in Adair Park your whole life, or are new to the neighborhood, we welcome you input! Lend your time and talents to the planning of Porches and Pies 2021. If you’d like to join the planning committee, mark your calendar for the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. Email events@adairpark.com for Zoom meeting information.
