On behalf of the effort to preserve the core historic structures of Kirkwood's Pratt Pullman Yard we would like to wish EVERYONE a Joyful and Merry Christmas, and the very best New Year in 2017!

To make that New Year even brighter we invite all to review and sign the BELOW petition to the State of Georgia insisting that they take steps to assure protection of the core historical structures (c.1914-1926) of Kirkwood's historic Pratt Pullman Yard with their sale of the site for development. This would be best achieved through the inclusion of deed restrictions, preservation easements, or covenants with the sale of the property.

Points to remember:
- This is NOT about one development plan over another.
- This is supported by the Kirkwood Neighbors Organization (KNO), NPU-O, and the City of Atlanta's Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP).
- In 2007 the State's sale offering included extensive community engagement and preservation and greenspace deed restrictions on the property in their first attempt to sell. Which begs the question; what has changed and why does the state no longer feel they have to preserve this nationally significant historic site?
- It is supported in State law by the Georgia Environmental Policy Act of 1991 (GEPA).
