    The threatened demolition of 398 Milledge Circle—one of the stops on the tour—led to the creation of two new historic districts in Five Points earlier this year.

    Five houses in the new Milledge Circle Local Historic District will help ring in the holiday season this weekend as part of this year’s Gala Tour of Homes hosted by the Athens-Clarke Heritage Foundation.

    This annual home tour, which is from 5–8 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 2, features homes in one of Athens’ newest historic districts, including two designed by noted Athens architect Fred Orr. The self-guided tour includes food at each home provided by local restaurants, beer and wine from local breweries and a silent auction well timed for holiday gifts.

    “There are so many beautiful neighborhoods in Athens, it’s always difficult to decide which to highlight for our annual Gala Tour of Homes,” said Tommy Valentine, executive director of the Athens-Clarke Heritage Foundation. “But when Milledge Circle was named a local historic district, along with Castalia Avenue, earlier this year, our planning committee knew this was where we needed to be.”

    Safe streets, whether they wind through a neighborhood or carry trucks and cars on their daily commutes, lead to a better community.

    That is the mantra behind a group of residents who are starting an effort to align Athens-Clarke County’s policies with state and national transportation standards. Complete Streets Athenslaunches its community-wide effort with the event “Streets are for People” from 6-8 p.m.Thursday, Sept. 24, at Little Kings Shuffle Club, 223 W. Hancock Ave.

    The event is free and open to the public, and will include bike light installations and an introduction to the mission of Complete Streets Athens.
