Learn the Basics of the City of Atlanta Neighborhood Stabilization Program - Sat., Feb. 5

The City of Atlanta’s Department of Planning and Community Development has the responsibility for administrative oversight, management and implementation of the city’s Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP). 

It is designed to help revitalize neighborhoods and address the national foreclosure crisis.  NSP grants allow municipalities to purchase abandoned, bank-owned foreclosures to help stabilize communities hit hardest by the crisis.  

On Saturday, Feb. 5, 2011, the city's Office of Housing is hosting a public information session.  The community is invited to attend the free event.  Here are the details:

NSP Public Information Session: Saturday, Feb, 5, 2011 - 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., Old Council Chambers, 68 Mitchell Street.

So Good You Can Eat Off the Streets!

So Good You Can Eat Off the Streets!

Some of the best in the mean time in between time meals I’ve had were off the streets of New York and Miami! Food trucks are so convenient especially when you don’t have a lot of time to sit in and eat at a restaurant on your short yet valuable lunch break..you want to grab and smash!

I get so excited when I see food trucks popping up over Atlanta…they definately have a place here and if you’re not use to this type of eating…come down from your posh horse for a moment and indulge a little {I promise you won’t be disappointed}.

The picture above is a photo I snapped with my phone, of a few food trucks at The Next Cool Thing event.
