Rumors About Toxic Powder on BeltLine

On Wednesday, some info was circulating about a potentially toxic powder in the Inman Park area of the BeltLine that killed two dogs.

Turns out the substance was normal bleached flour, which is not toxic. So TBD on what those two dogs died from, but it seems to be unrelated.

Thanks to the Doziers!

A big THANK YOU to David and Terri Dozier of Wimbledon Drive! They cut the fallen tree at Gotham Way Park into smaller pieces so that it can be easily cleaned up once the Park Beautification Day is rescheduled. Be on the lookout for the new cleanup day to be announced soon.

Donations to the Piedmont Heights Foundation are always welcome to help us maintain and beautify our amazing park! And your gift is tax deductible.

Two Years After Atlanta Spa Shootings...

Ongoing Updates:

ATL Gas Light Project Complete

It's officially complete! The Atlanta Gas Light project that begin in July 2021 to upgrade the natural gas line that runs underneath Piedmont Road through Piedmont Heights and north into Buckhead is officially complete. 

According to their email: In December of 2022, Atlanta experienced record cold temperatures and our pipeline system delivered more energy than in any period in OUR HISTORY. We did not experience any disruptions to natural gas service during this time, and that’s largely due to the pipeline improvements of this project and others we have completed.
