An ordinance amendment granting a special-use permit for a soccer field in Castleberry Hill is to be considered Wednesday by the Zoning Committee of the Atlanta City Council.
The Castleberry Hill Neighborhood Association seeks the permit for an approximately 1-acre site at 310 Trenholm St. SW, according to a Zoning Committee agenda item.
A flier posted online by the Castleberry Hill Athletic Club proposes turning a vacant lot at 310 Trenholm into a multi-use athletic field. H.J. Russell & Co. has given the club usage rights of the lot for six years, the club says.
Working with the Neighborhood Association, “our goal is to raise funds, enabling us to complete objectives such as establishing an artificial turf field, installing lights, and fencing to ensure safety and security,” the flier says. Plans call for a 176-by-110-foot athletic field, lawn area with deck, and a gravel parking lot.
