New Resident Information
The City of Atlanta offers a New Resident Website with an abundance of helpful information. For residents new to Lake Claire, LCN has created a welcome flyer with neighborhood-specific information.
The safety of our neighbors and neighborhood is of utmost importance to Lake Claire Neighbors. At each monthly meeting, we invite Atlanta police officers from Zone 6 to come and talk with us about crime and other safety concerns. We keep one another informed through the Lake Claire Neighborhood Watch Yahoo group, which enables easy and rapid communication among Lake Claire block captains, the VP of Safety for Lake Claire Neighbors, and any neighbors who want to communicate about safety issues. Anyone is welcome to join this group.
The Directed Patrol Form. This form can be mailed, faxed, or taken by hand to Zone 6, if you are going to be out of town, a spouse is out of town, or any time you think you may need extra police patrols on your street.
The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) serves Lake Claire by rail and bus.
• Rail: The Edgewood/Candler Park and East Lake train stations are each less than a mile from the neighborhood, and located along DeKalb Avenue. They are on the East-West line, which connects with the North-South line downtown at Five Points. Parking at these MARTA stations is free. MARTA trains are a convenient way to get to and from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, sporting events, and several Atlanta attractions, such as the Civic Center, the World Congress Center, and the High Museum of Art.
• Bus: Four bus lines serve Lake Claire. MARTA has bus maps and schedules on its website.
