ABOUT ANSLEY PARK AND APCA

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.

Join APCA

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.

Historic Designation Process

Draft proposed interim controls

As a part of the City of Atlanta’s nomination/designation process to create a Historic District for Ansley Park, all properties within the proposed Historic District would be protected by and regulated by the interim controls below, as well as the requirements of the City’s Historic Preservation Ordinance, which is Chapter 20 of the City’s Zoning Ordinance. The interim controls, which are a required part of the City of Atlanta’s nomination/designation process, provide property owners with regulations for design and construction work that might be needed during the interim period.

If you disagree with your assessment please complete
this form and email to historicpreservation@atlantaga.gov.


The APCA hosted a neighborhood meeting on Wednesday, March 30 at 7:30pm at Ansley Golf Club.

APCA is working to constructively engage all neighbors, and it was a well attended event.


Statement of the Ansley Park Civic Association Board – March 9, 2022

At its regularly scheduled monthly meeting, the Ansley Park Civic Association Board of Directors passed the following resolution: (CLICK HERE TO READ MORE OR LESS)

Whereas the Ansley Park Civic Association (“APCA”) created Ansley Park Forever (“APF”) as an exploratory effort to address threats to the historic character of the neighborhood.

Whereas APCA appreciates the hard work and persistence of APF.

Whereas APCA desires to create a balanced process whereby the neighborhood can examine preservation alternatives.

And, whereas the APCA Board recognizes a diversity of opinions even within its own ranks,

Be it resolved, that APCA will take the opportunity to convene organized forums and information sessions on behalf of the community during the next 30 day period

The Board believes the community needs time to become better educated as to the historic district application process but, more importantly, have the opportunity to engage in a free exchange of views. We have received 290 emails or petition signatures in response to a proposed Historic District nomination application offered by Ansley Park Forever. 174 households in the proposed district expressed support of proceeding with the application (including petition signatures from APF from earlier in their process) while 116 households have expressed concerns with the concept. We believe that the communications we have read indicate a wide range of potential misunderstanding on all sides. We don’t believe the neighborhood can constructively proceed with this level mistrust and misinformation.

The City of Atlanta has a well established process for neighborhoods or districts within neighborhoods to obtain historic preservation status as provided under existing statues. Currently there are 12 neighborhoods that are Historic Districts, there are 11 neighborhoods and districts which are Landmark Districts, and there is one neighborhood that is a Conservation District. We look to avail ourselves of resources offered by the City and approach other neighborhood civic associations as to their experiences as we continue to encourage a neighborhood conversation about these issues.

Paul Dimmick, President
