Volunteer Decatur sent out this call for Decatur Book Fest volunteers…
It’s Almost Book Festival Time! Lots of Volunteer Openings Available
The Decatur Book Festival is just around the corner. Beginning the afternoon of Friday, August 29 and running through the evening of Sunday, August 31, the festival is Decatur’s largest special event and relies heavily on support from volunteers. There are many different types of jobs – set-up, working at author venues, merchandise and souvenir sales, and more – so invite your friends, neighbors and co-workers to volunteer. All volunteers receive a free festival t-shirt and a free book coupon to spend at the festival.

The Guru reports in FFAF that Arepa Mia has a sign up next to Piece of Cake in the Trackside strip along East College Ave. We first reported Arepa Mia’s Decatur location back in May, but the location was unclear. Now we know!
Check out their Facebook page for further details. No word on an opening date yet.

From the Medlock neighborhood website…
The Dunkin’ Donuts’ (DD) special land use permit (SLUP) proposed for 1450 Scott Blvd (old Avon Bldg. site) was withdrawn* at the Board of Commissioners’ session on July 22.
Many were looking forward to a Dunkin’ Donuts but others warned that DD’s concessions, although substantial, did not address key impacts such as additional pollution from idling cars and traffic congestion. Specifically, the drive-through’s peak operation hours would have coincided with rush hour traffic at an already congested two-lane stretch of road.
