ABOUT PIEDMONT HEIGHTS

Piedmont Heights is a “Small Town in a Big City”. As the oldest neighborhood in Atlanta, we’re all about change. These days we’re focused on lots of development – new houses, new businesses, and new neighbors. As we grow, we need resources to support our growth and ensure the safety and preservation of our neighborhood.

IMPORTANT NEWS AND UPDATES 

Piedmont Heights Named in Top 7 of Best Neighborhoods in Atlanta 2020 



We always knew that our neighborhood was special, now the entire state knows it too! Thank you Curbed Atlanta for naming Piedmont Heights one of the best neighborhoods in Atlanta!Curbed Atlanta

THE DRAW: A feeling of being tucked away, in the middle of it all

SIMILAR NEIGHBORHOODS: Morningside-Lenox Park; Peachtree Hills

TYPES OF HOMES: High-dollar new construction; handsome brick townhomes; garden-style condos

An icicle-shaped neighborhood bounded by Piedmont Avenue, Interstate 85, and the former railroad line that cuts through Piedmont Park, Piedmont Heights is under-appreciated. This tony neighborhood is a segue between trendy Midtown and the old/new money of Buckhead, with enviable proximity to Piedmont Park and all the scuzzy wonders of Cheshire Bridge Road. Its roster of attractions includes venerable Smith’s Olde Bar and Ford Fry’s Little Rey, plus a stock of truly lovely, smaller houses that can be attained in the ballpark of $500,000.

There is history aplenty; Atlanta’s second-oldest home—the Liddell House,http://bit.ly/LiddellHouse a classic, clapboard-sided antebellum farmhouse with a porte cochère—is located on Montgomery Ferry Road. But for all its aspirational residences and marquee location, not every Atlantan could point out Piedmont Heights on a map, which boosts the cachet.

Bonus: Piedmont Heights is getting its own Beltline segment

http://bit.ly/PiedmontHeightsBeltline—a stretch of the Northeast Trail, behind the neighborhood’s Ansley Mall—that launched construction last fall. The result should be a combination of Beltline and interstate access second only to West End and Reynoldstown. And locals know not to miss Grindhouse Killer Burgers, which opened its “flagship” location here on Piedmont Avenue in 2011.

Piedmont Heights mourns the loss of our beloved Jean Johnson who passed away quietly on February 4 th after a short illness. Jean moved to Piedmont Heights in 1972. She joined the Piedmont Heights Civic Association a few years later, and served on its Board of Directors for 35 years. She chaired and served on many committees and task forces, never seeking high post nor personal recognition. She was always the calm voice of experience and reason, never excited nor angry, led by example, and offered wise counsel. Her dedication to community extended far beyond our neighborhood. She served many years as Piedmont Heights’ representative to Neighborhood Planning Unit F, garnering much public recognition. In 2016 she received an Atlanta Planning Advisory Board Award for the City of Atlanta’s “Neighborhoods Matter” program.

Jean was at heart a teacher. Her professional career in Atlanta included three major educational organizations, the Southern Regional Education Board, the Southern Education Foundation, and the National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges, retiring in 2000. Jean never married but the many friends she made in Piedmont Heights became her loving family.

In 2013, to recognize her long service to our neighborhood, the PHCA Board created and awarded her the “Jean Johnson Award”, which since has been awarded annually to a PHCA Board Member for outstanding service. When asked about the highlights of her life, Jean responded without hesitation, friends made and her years of service to Piedmont Heights.

We thank Jean from the bottoms of our hearts for being such a good neighbor and wish her a fond farewell. We will sorely miss her but her spirit and example will always be with us.

Atlanta Police Department Zone Boundaries Change Affects Piedmont Heights

Effective Sunday, March 17, 2017, Atlanta Police Department’s change to its Zone boundaries changed the Zones responsible for Piedmont Heights coverage.

Piedmont Heights and Morningside now have portions of their neighborhoods in both Zones 2 and 6. Former Beat 213, which includes much of Piedmont Heights and Morningside became Beat 613 in Zone 6. In Piedmont Heights, Wimbledon and areas to the north remain in Zone 2 in Beat 212. Rock Springs and areas south moved to Zone 6, Beat 613. We coordinated with both Zone Commanders on March 18 to voice our concern over the split coverage. Both Zone Commanders assured us the change will mean faster patrol response in our area because Police Dispatch will send the closest unit on a call, no matter which Zone it is in. The change will also mean both Zones 2 and 6 will patrol Cheshire Bridge Road.

We will continue to coordinate with both Zones 2 and 6 and will keep you informed of changes as they occur. This Zone change will not affect the Piedmont Heights Security Patrol. A new Atlanta Police Zone and Beat map is available at

    The PHCA is an all-volunteer organization. While your dues cover the expense of communications, events, secutiry patrol etc. What we can accomplish is constrained by the number of volunteers. The good news is that the PHCA has enjoyed a wealth of wonderful volunteers willing to give their time and talent to improve the functioning of our neighborhood.

    But these folks cannot do it alone. We are in constant need of new neighbors willing to help out, whether they have only a little or a lot of time they can devote. Please Contact Us and we will be happy to discuss how you might contribute to our efforts.

    The rewards of working with the PHCA: 

    • Give back to the neighborhood
    • Expand your experience by trying out new jobs
    • Add experience to your resume
    • Meet the best neighbors and work with the most enthusiastic group of volunteers in Atlanta!

    Please contact membership@piedmonteheights.org for any comments, concerns or suggestions.

    Shape Up for Spring & Improve North Highland

    With warmer weather around the corner, swimsuit season can’t be far behind.  This year there is no better way to prepare than by getting in shape for the Morningside Mile, Sunday, March 25 at 2:00 PM.  This year’s race is bigger and better than ever,

    The exceptional one-mile race features cash prizes, drawing competitors from across the region.  For 2018, we’re adding chip timing to deliver more precise results and a new ‘Just for Fun’ Half-Mile to launch the after party.  If you’re not a competitive runner, there is still something for you.  The race features several waves:

    ·         Competitive Runner—under 7-minute mile

    ·         Recreational Runner—more than 7-minute mile

    ·         Families & Walkers—more casual striders, families with strollers, kids under 15, and walkers

    ·         Just for Fun Half-Mile—this new category, created especially for kids and families will follow the police motorcycle after the last racers.  Open to kids accompanied by an adult guardian, pets and bikes/scooters/strollers.

    Piedmont Heights and nearby neighborhoods have experienced a tremendous increase in thefts from vehicles in the past year. A "clean car" is one way to discourage thieves. That does not mean just keeping things in your car out of sight. More importantly, it means do not leave anything of value anywhere in your car.

    A number of thefts from vehicles in this area have included money and guns left in glove compartments or consoles. Because thieves have found those valuables in cars which did not have anything of value visible, thieves are sometimes breaking into even those cars which do not have anything visible in the hopes they'll find money or guns or jewelry in closed compartments. Best advice, leave those things locked up at home or office, not in a relatively unsecure automobile.
