Statement on the Passing of Sam Massell
“Today Buckhead lost a leader, an advocate and a great man. Sam Massell loved this community and never tired in his work on its behalf. His contributions are too numerous to name and his impact too far-reaching to measure, but we are especially grateful for his work to establish the Buckhead Community Improvement District. Thanks to his vision, Buckhead’s commercial district has benefited from more than two decades of investment in projects and programs that are essential components of the thriving, walkable, livable urban center that it is today.
On behalf of the board of directors and staff of the Buckhead Community Improvement District, I express my sincere condolences to all those who knew and loved Sam. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.”
– Jim Durrett, executive director of the Buckhead CID
