In January, the Underwood Hills Neighborhood Association (UHNA) Membership Committee’s Welcome Wagon rolled out to greet five new households to the neighborhood. Cynthia Williams and Amy Panos, pictured above visiting new neighbor, Jamie Bell, kicked off the season by welcoming the recent arrivals in this year’s first visit.

The Welcome Wagon Team, led by Cynthia Williams, identifies new arrivals and plans quarterly visits to their homes to provide a welcome packet with essential information about Underwood Hills and a complimentary flower bouquet donated by a neighborhood business, Florist Atlanta. We are fortunate to have Florist Atlanta as a partner, so please remember to visit them at the shop tucked in the corner at White St. and Howell Mill Rd.

In addition to the flowers, the team includes a welcome note, a map of the West Midtown Design district and tips on how to stay informed of social events and happenings around the neighborhood.

If you know of new neighbors to Underwood Hills, or would like to join the Welcome Wagon on their next visit, please contact Cynthia at madamew@hotmail.com.

As many of you are already aware, GA DOT has started their Peachtree/AMTRAK Bridge project, which will require the temporary closure of Deering Road.  Please see the message below from Rick Parham, with GA DOT, regarding the length of the closure and the necessary detour.

You may also read a full article regarding the closure at the Midtown Path.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office or Mr. Parham at the e-mail address listed below.

A reminder for your neighborhoods: Deering Road will be closed to through traffic beginning Monday, Jan. 7, to allow for positioning of a crane to facilitate bridge decking repairs at the AMTRAK station.
