COVID-19 Impacts Village

Since March 13, the coronavirus pandemic has imposed an historic metamorphosis on Emory Village. Once well-worn sidewalks pave the way to temporarily closed restaurants and stores, and vacant parking lots leave only the bravest cars to bake under Georgia’s summer sun. Occasionally, village-goers simply walk up to the doors of their favorite restaurants, toting children and over-walked dogs, and remember what once was—all of the Mother’s Day brunches at Rise-n-Dine, the before-school excursions to CVS to pick up that gift card for that friend’s birthday you forgot, and the weekends spent lounging in Ali’s Cookies.

But today, within the pandemic plagued Village, the “palpable impact of COVID-19 is the economic devastation of the businesses.” says Todd Hill, chair of the Emory Village Alliance. EVA remains loyal to the struggling enterprises. “We are patronizing the businesses ourselves,” Hill says, “and are encouraging the broader community to do the same.” 

Hill reports that EVA has shifted to online monthly meetings and is working to improve the Village on behalf of all of its users “by work days, lighting the roundabout trees, keeping the plaza fountain clean and operational, maintaining the streetscape plantings, working with the county to install a pedestrian crosswalk signal, and our upcoming streetlight banner campaign.” Among EVA’s recent successes was a salute to local graduates’ with a drive-through celebration. “EVA posted a banner celebrating the spring graduates, and Emory Villagers and neighbors cheered on the parade of graduates as they drove through Emory Village.” 

Despite the ongoing health crisis, Hill reports that EVA still plans to host the annual Open Streets event. “The 8th Annual Open Streets Emory Village will be a hybrid series of activities held both virtually and in the Village,” Hill says. “EVA is considering a fundraising effort that would be associated with the Open Streets Emory Village event and may benefit businesses.”

EVA plans for a host of village-life improvements demonstrate that it’s definitely not giving up on Emory Village. “As we continue to live the new normal,” Hill says, “we will seek ways to help businesses and keep the Village a vibrant community center—including more social media outreach, focused highlights on specific businesses, and acknowledgement of the healthcare providers in our community.”

  6. Hello there! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be okay.
    I’m definitely enjoying your blog and look forward to new updates.

  7. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem
    to be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to
    do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Thanks

  8. Howdy this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs
    use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  9. Hey there! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my good old room mate!

  10. I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never
    found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth
    enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much
    more useful than ever before.

    subjects? Thanks a ton!

  12. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog
    and was curious what all is needed to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks

  17. Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has
    some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!

    Other then that, awesome blog!

  18. I think this is among the most significant information for me.

    And i’m glad reading your article. But wanna remark on few general things, The web site style is ideal,

  23. First off I would like to say wonderful blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.

    I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.

    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?

    Appreciate it!

  24. Hiya! Quick question that’s entirely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when browsing
    from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.
    If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Appreciate it!

    My blog post: A片

  25. Greetings! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a group of volunteers and
    starting a new initiative in a community in the same niche.

    изделий по низким ценам.

  27. Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one
    and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments?
    If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any support is
    very much appreciated.

  28. Can I simply just say what a relief to discover an individual
    who actually knows what they are discussing on the internet.
    You actually realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More people must look at this and understand this side of your story.
    It’s surprising you aren’t more popular since you certainly
    have the gift.

  29. I’m not sure where you’re getting your information, but good topic.

    I needs to spend some time learning more or understanding more.
    Thanks for magnificent information I was looking for this information for my

  30. Please let mme know if you’re looking for a article author for yor weblog.

    good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d really like to write some
    material for your blog in exchange for a link back tto
    mine. Pllease shoot me ann e-mail if interested.

    Many thanks!

  31. Excellent post but I was wondering if you could
    write a litte more on this topic? I’d be very thankful if
    you could elaborate a little bit more. Bless you!

  32. Its like you learn my mind! You seem to understand so much approximately
    this, such as you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you simply could do with some p.c. to force the message home
    a little bit, however instead of that, that is magnificent
    blog. A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.

  33. Usually I do not read article on blogs, but I would like to say
    that this write-up very forced me to take a look at and do so!
    Your writing taste has been surprised me. Thank you,
    very nice post.

  34. Excellent article. Keep posting such kind of information on your page.
    Im really impressed by your site.
    Hey there, You have done an excellent job. I will definitely digg it and personally recommend to my
    friends. I’m confident they’ll be benefited from this site.

  35. You really make it appear really easy with your presentation however I find this
    topic to be actually something that I think
    I’d by no means understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely huge for me.

    I am looking ahead in your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  36. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you,
    you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something too few men and
    women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I came
    across this in my search for something relating to this.

  37. Excellent blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?

    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There
    are so many options out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any ideas? Thanks!

  38. Hi, yes this article is in fact fastidious and
    I have learned lot of things from it on the topic of blogging.


  39. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good.
    I do not know who you are but definitely you are going to a famous blogger if
    you are not already 😉 Cheers!

  40. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know
    a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both
    show the same outcome.

  41. If some one desires expert view on the topic of blogging and
    site-building after that i propose him/her to go
    to see this website, Keep up the fastidious job.

  42. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your web site.
    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues?
    A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my website not
    working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox.
    Do you have any recommendations to help fix this problem?

  43. What’s up every one, here every person is sharing these kinds of
    knowledge, thus it’s nice to read this webpage, and I used to pay a visit this website everyday.

  44. Nice blog here! Also your web site loads up fast! What
    host are you using? Can I get your affiliate link to your host?
    I wish my website loaded up as quickly as yours lol

  45. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto
    a coworker who was conducting a little homework on this.
    And he in fact bought me lunch simply because I discovered
    it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thank
    YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending some time to talk about this subject here
    on your blog.
