Re: “Mr. Mayor, here's your report card

You may have spoken too soon about the Lakewood Fairgrounds lease. With the legislature threatening to withdraw tax incentives for film companies, I wonder what will happen to Screen Gems' 50-year lease on Lakewood. Other companies are already rethinking plans to come here while this political football is in play.

Re: “Target vandals, not artists

Turning outlaws into artlaws defeats the purpose of graffiti, but maybe that's the idea.

Why not outsource the project to a private company - let's call them PaintAtlanta. Everyone's happy with how that's worked with parking.

Re: “Inman Park Properties implosion leaves neighborhood landmarks in limbo

Residents of East Atlanta Village have another grievance against Inman Park Properties. Before selling a tiny parcel of land at 469 Metropolitan Place IPP arranged for it to be leased to T-Mobile for the construction of a cell phone tower. This proposed tower will be bordered on three sides by single-family homes 100 or more years old and will diminish their value as well as the historic character of the street.

T-Mobile proposes to “camouflage” the tower by disguising it as a pine tree – a 157-foot pine tree surrounded by one- and two-story houses and trees no more than 75 feet tall.

Potential health hazards are another concern of the neighbors, especially a senior cancer survivor whose house is next door to the site and a pregnant woman across the street from it.

A neighborhood meeting will be held on Wednesday, July 15, at 7 p.m. at Branan Towers, 1200 Glenwood Ave. Special guest will be Susan Clarke, director of the Environmental Health Advocacy League and public health researcher, who has consulted with communities in several states about the impact of cell towers.

If your neighborhood hasn’t been hit with a cell tower yet, it could be next - Inman Park Properties still has a lot of land to unload – so you might want to attend the meeting and get up to speed on the topic.
