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.

We are fantastically situated between Atlantic Station, Georgia Tech, the Westside Provisions District, and Techwood Drive along the Downtown Connector.

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 Committees:

Membership shows your support for all the volunteers of the association. Funds from membership dues and donations are used to pay the expenses of HPCIA, which have included design services for master plans and signs, land use reviews, and expenses to operate this web site. The HPCIA has contributed toward the purchases of a patrol motorcycle for the Atlanta Police Department and a police cruiser (Dodge Charger) used by both the APD and the Georgia Tech Police Department.

Membership is limited to residents, property owners, or business owners in the Home Park neighborhood. Participation in the organization and most of the resources provided by HPCIA are open to all, but membership is the only way you can vote on issues critical to our neighborhood.

HPCIA guides smart development with our retail and services neighbors along our commercial streets and organizes periodic neighborhood beautification days.

If you have any questions, please email us at membership@homepark.org.
