First developed in 1904, Ansley Park was the dream of Edwin P. Ansley who along with several prominent businessmen of the time, purchased a large plot of land north of the city from longtime owner George Washington Collier. Ansley envisioned a new motorcar-oriented suburb of wide winding streets and green parks.
Ansley's vision of a gracious, harmonious neighborhood that would be an oasis in the midst of the bustling city of Atlanta lives on today, in great part thanks to the efforts of the Ansley Park Civic Association (APCA) . Since the 1960's, the Association has been an active force in maintaining the neighborhood's integrity, safety, and sense of community.
Thanks to all who renewed their Ansley Park Civic Association (APCA) /Security Patrol membership. If you have not yet renewed, your membership has lapsed. You can still renew your membership by clicking the link below.
Your membership in the APCA/Security Patrol provides many benefits to the safety and enjoyment of our neighborhood. The Security Patrol recruits top Atlanta Police Department officers to provide off-duty patrolling of Ansley Park. The number of shifts covered directly correlates with the number of member renewals for annual funding. The APCA has always worked to maintain and improve the quality of life in Ansley Park, including safety and security through our Security Patrol.

The city is in the process of a complete rewrite of the zoning code. The rewrite has the potential to change what you and your neighbor can and can't build on a lot. If you've ever been frustrated by the land development code's confusing mix of setbacks, lot coverages, maximum building heights, fence heights, and carriage house requirements, now is the time! The city has proposed an all new way to zone lots called zoning strings. Zoning strings enable individual lots to have more tailored development outcomes and is concerned more with the form of the building than with its use. This focus on form could open the neighborhood to a variety of redevelopment opportunities such as neighborhood scale commercial establishments.
Get involved by attending workshops in person or virtually. The workshop will focus on city-wide alternatives to the current code. Click here for the workshop schedule.
Noise and air pollution in Ansley Park caused by gas leaf blowers continue to be an irritant and health risk for residents.
