Issues that have appeared here in past.

The Historic Boulevard Neighborhood Association is comprised of residents of the Boulevard Area and provides a forum for discussion, organization, and action related to community, political and social issues affecting the neighborhood. The Boulevard neighborhood is bounded by the CSX railroad tracks to the north, the north side of Prince Avenue on the south, both sides of Pulaski Street on the east and both sides of Pound Street on the west. Most of the Neighborhood lies within the Boulevard Historic district, an area laid out at the end of the nineteenth century as the first streetcar suburb in Athens, Georgia.

This website is maintained by volunteers. Your suggestions and additions are welcome.
