City of Atlanta Re-opens Rosel Fann Recreation Center Tonight for Residents

The City of Atlanta announced today that Rosel Fann Recreation Center will re-open from 8 p.m. tonight to 7 a.m. Wednesday for residents who may be adversely affected by tonight's frigid weather.

Atlanta Police Department, Atlanta Fire & Rescue and EMS personnel will be at the recreation center. The AFRD will have an Advance Life Support Unit assigned to the facility during the operational hours on a rotational basis and a First-Aid station also will be on-site.

City staff will provide blankets, cots and water to residents who come to the center which is located at 365 Cleveland Ave. SE, Atlanta, GA 30354. The City strongly encourages all residents who lack adequate shelter or heat to seek assistance this evening. For more information, please call the Mayor’s Office of Constituent Services at (404) 330-6023.

If icy conditions develop overnight, the City of Atlanta encourages residents to stay off the roads. If driving is unavoidable, use extra care.

On Sunday evening, City maintenance began spreading a mixture of sand and salt over all bridges and overpasses and segments of street with steep gradients using a priority route system based on traffic volumes and locations of employment centers and hospitals.

Please call (404) 853-3227 to report icy road conditions, downed trees/debris.
