The Home Park Community
Home Park is one of Atlanta’s oldest neighborhoods becoming part of the City in 1909 while providing residences for the Atlantic Steel Company. The Atlantic Steel Company was shut down in the 1990s and it’s 140-acre site was entirely redeveloped into Atlantic Station.
The Heart of West Midtown
Home Park Community Improvement Association
The Home Park neighborhood founded the Home Park Community Improvement Association (HPCIA) in the 1970s. The mission of HPCIA is to provide information, services, and education to the Home Park community. Membership is open to residents, renters, businesses and anyone who owns property in Home Park.
HPCIA envisions Home Park on its 125 Anniversary as a vibrant in-town neighborhood, committed to preserving and enhancing the qualities that already make it a great place to live and work.
- An in-town haven for working professionals, families, seniors, and students from all over the world, who care about their neighbors and their homes as a common denominator
- A variety of housing choices to sustain the capability to live in the neighborhood for all ages, income levels, and family situations
- An assortment of businesses and amenities supported by residents and visitors alike.
- Pedestrian and bike-friendly
- Safe, clean streets and sidewalks
- Parks, green spaces and clean lanes, shaded by healthy and robust trees;
- Convenient to Atlanta’s many opportunities for dining, retail, educational and cultural institutions.
- A unified neighborhood with residents and businesses connecting and supporting each other
- A strong sense of belonging, where ownership and investment in the community is more than a property deed…a true Home within an urban neighborhood
- People-centered, planned growth
- Community engagement and participation
- Protection of the natural and developed environment
- Problem-solving through innovative approaches
- Trust and respect for the community and neighbors
- Pride of place, manifested in everyone’s care and love for the community

Problem Trash Piles and Herbie Curbies
The City of Atlanta has a division within Public Works called the “SWEET TEAM.” “SWEET” stands for Solid Waste Education and Enforcement Team that addresses problems with Herbie Curbies left on the street or sidewalks after City pickup days, discarded furniture, illegal dumping, illegal signs, and improperly contained waste disposal.
If you see a problem, call 404-330-6333 or send an email to email@example.com.
The city will be able to follow up much better if you can provide them with the address and the contact information you have for the owner of the property.
