2018 Park Over 400 Survey by NBCA
RequiredRequired Question(s)
Dear survey taker.  This survey was released to the pubic as part of our October 2017 North Buckhead Newsletter.  The survey article was unfortunately placed at the bottom of a page with articles on other topics and the resulting response rate (less than 100 surveys were completed) was unusually low.  If you took the survey before, feel free to take it again.  Results from the October and March versions of this survey will be tallied and reported separately.This was explained in more detail on page 6 of our March newsletter edition, online at www.nbca.org/newsletters/2018-03.pdf.  This survey will automatically at the end of the day on April 20, 2018.
This survey is about the Park Over 400 and MARTA's Role in North Buckhead. We appreciate your participation. 
We will ask for your address since we have often found that important insights can be had by considering respondents' locations when tallying their answers.  We'll publish all responses to this survey but will just include street names (without house numbers) and will show responses at approximate locations on street maps if results are mapped.  Survey-taker names will not be published

Park Over 400 is a plan to build a half-mile long, seven-acre park over GA400 and above the Buckhead MARTA Station.  It would extend from Lenox Road to Peachtree Road, entirely inside our North Buckhead neighborhood.  It would provide a traffic-free extension of PATH400 from the north side of Lenox Road to the south side of Peachtree Road.  
This is a park proposed by the Buckhead Community Improvement District (BCID).  The BCID is a non-profit quasi-governmental corporation financed and controlled by Buckhead area business interests. This park is a proposal, not a certainty.  It has not been approved by the city, state or federal governments.  A 4-3 vote in July by BCID's board allocated funding to continue planning efforts for the park.

Last fall, Atlanta voters approved a sales tax increase to fund improvements to MARTA within the city limits.  Some are excited about this initiative helping to address one of the city's biggest problems: traffic.  Atlanta will raise $2.5 billion over 40 years.  Should any of it be spent to help North Buckhead? If so, how?
