Fiscal Partners Program

In 2008, LLCC established the Fiscal Partners Program to support community efforts to develop and improve the livability of the community. Through this program, LLCC accepts tax deductible contributions on behalf of neighborhood partners who are making improvements to their neighborhoods, freeing them from the hassle of having to get a 501(c)(3) nonprofit tax status.

Our Board of Directors has recently done a re-evaluation of this program, and has adopted many changes. To learn more, click HERE.



SR-400/I-85 Connector Ramps


With construction underw
ay on the SR-400/I-85 connector ramps, you might like a refresher on how the project will look and work when completed.

This project will reconstruct the interchange of S.R. 400/I-85 by providing connector ramps from S.R. 400 Southbound to I-85 Northbound and from I-85 Southbound to S.R. 400 Northbound. The total length of the project is 0.34 miles. The project is located entirely inside the City of Atlanta, in Fulton County at the interchange of S.R. 400 with I-85. The project area is bordered by the following interchanges: along I-85, I-85/North Druid Hills Road Interchange to the north, the Buford Highway on and off-ramps to the south, and the S.R. 400/Lenox Road Interchange to the north along S.R. 400. A pedestrian trail will be constructed from Cheshire Bridge Road to Lenox Road, including a bridge across the North Fork Peachtree Creek as environmental mitigation.

Scheduled for completion in March 2014.

Clifton Corridor Transit Initiative Update

Below is a report submitted by Jane Rawlings, LLCC's Fulton Transportation Coordinator from MARTA.

Christopher Silveira
Transportation Planner III
MARTA

Over the past two months, we have put out to bid a contract for our next stage in the project - the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), which we expect to complete by the end of 2016.  We have completed selection of a consultant and, recently, the negotiations over the details of the contract.  Once I receive word from my manager and/or director, we can move forward with the consultant to set up our Public Involvement Plan (PIP) and our Project Management Plan (PMP) for the EIS.  This will lead us into early scoping whereby we will discuss our still unresolved issue of acquiring use of the CSX right of way and, hopefully, at that point, we will be able to get it prioritized by our Executive Management Team to see if we can get some progress with the railroad.  However the CSX talks go, they will direct us down whichever corridor options are applicable considering the ability or inability to use said right of way.


 

Matching Gift Programs Help Donors Multiply Their Own Giving

 

We’re grateful to have received several matching gifts in recent months by residents and their employers. 

 

“Matching Gift” programs exist at many companies and are a great way to increase your own contribution to LLCC – you donate a dollar, they donate a dollar.

 

Oftentimes, even companies which do not have established matching programs remain equally eager to participate if asked. If you’d like help arranging a gift with your own employer, please don’t hesitate to contact us at

 

treasurer@lindberghlavista.org.


LLCC is a 501(c)(3) public charity, and all gifts are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.

Click the image above to enlarge.

The Creekside Trail is being built by GDOT as partial remediation for the connector ramps being built at the I-85/SR-400 interchange next to the Lindridge/Martin Manor neighborhood. It runs along the North Fork of Peachtree Creek from Cheshire Bridge Road (across from Chantilly Drive) to Lindbergh Drive.

Adopt-a-Highway Program

                   
Interested in helping out on a regular basis? We're looking for a new Adopt-a-Highway Coordinator - someone willing to handle a small amount of GDOT paperwork and lead each month's event.
 
The Adopt-a-Highway Program was one of the first efforts of LLCC. It has a very real impact on the perception of our community in that it helps to keep one of our major thoroughfares, and namesake, attractive. Due to the lack of a coordinator, we have not had an organized litter pickup in several months.
 
If you're interested, please contact LLCC President, Henry Batten, for more information.
