Remembering an Inspirational Leader
A champion for mixed-income and senior housing, Noel Khalil passes away at 70

Seven years ago, Noel Khalil, a well-respected business owner, gave us insight on developing senior housing on the closed Hidden Hills golf course. He even gave us a tour of one of his stellar properties, Columbia Heritage Senior Center on Perry Blvd. in Atlanta.  He passed away Oct. 25. I just want to acknowledge how kind he was to us.  He affirmed the benefits of our idea, and he encouraged us. Few people would have taken the time. He accomplished great things, ensuring that hundreds of people of modest income had decent places to live.

The following link is an excellent story about him.

GIVING BACK OPPORTUNITIES

Join the effort to make our community prosperous, attractive, and green!

Thank you to all neighborhood associations and individuals who have joined GHHCDC.  We thank all our hard-working volunteers who enable us to run on a bare-bones budget. There are no salaries.

To all readers, as we approach the end of the year, please donate to the Greater Hidden Hills CDC.   Your donation directly benefits this community.  Because we know that beautiful streetscapes grow good business, we continue to pay for the maintenance of the median at Redan/S. Hairston, and we pay for the basic costs of running a nonprofit.

We have not been able to have our annual fundraiser for two years due to Covid concerns.  Our financial resources are dwindling. Your contribution will help, and it is tax deductible. We are a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit.
 You can donate online at this link.

Or, send a check to
Greater Hidden Hills CDC

P.O. Box 1811
