This is an abbreviated Monday Roundup for tonight’s public meetings. We will publish a full week’s roundup later due to time constraints.
Monday, September 20
- 5:30 p.m.: The Jonesboro Historic Preservation Commission meets at 124 North Avenue to consider certificates of appropriateness for the Hearthside Jonesboro senior development, a four-story development similar to many mixed-use properties around metro Atlanta that is going up behind the Marathon gas station, as well as a sign for The Cigar Parlour, a cigar bar going in at 171 N. Main Street. The Hearthside Jonesboro project cut across the backs of several lots in the Historic District, according to city staff. Previously-approved duplexes have been dropped from the project. Staff recommends approval.
- 6 p.m.: The Forest Park City Council holds its work session, followed by the regular meeting at 7 p.m. Follow along live on the city’s YouTube channel ( https://bit.ly/3c28p0A ) or attend in person at City Hall, 745 Forest Parkway. The entrance to Council Chambers is on the far right as you face the building on Forest Parkway. Masks, temperature and bag checks, and social distancing are required. The city is looking to dispose of numerous iPhones, including five listed as being assigned to City Hall.
- 6 p.m.: Men Standing in the Gap 2.0: State Representative Rhonda Burnough and Georgia House Minority Leader James Beverly are holding a Men Standing In The Gap 2.0: African American Men Listening Tour Meeting on Zoom. The discussion will include health care, employment, small business loans, homeownership, education, childcare, custody, and other issues.
