Letter from Kevin Curry, VP Public Safety

A request by Kevin Curry, VP of Public Safety to spend IPNA funds for new patrol car.

A few weeks ago, our old but trusty Inman Park patrol car, the 2007 Ford Crown Vic gave up the ghost and blew a head gasket. It was not worth another repair bill to bring it back to life, so we must replace the car as soon as possible. The patrol is now being performed in the APD officer's private vehicles.

I have asked another neighborhood association patrol, namely Midtown Blue, and several APD officer's for advice on the types and models of recommended patrol vehicles. Two vehicles seem to come up regularly and they are the Ford Explorer (an SUV) and the Toyota Tacoma (an extended cab pickup). Everyone I spoke to seems to think the idea of a taller vehicle offers three distinct advantages; riding higher in the seat so that the patrol officer has better visibility, easier access in and out of the vehicle and lastly more visibility as the officers drive through the neighborhood. Also, they seem to be longer lasting vehicles given the constant on-the-road demand they are subjected to.

Homelessness and drug abuse in Little 5 Points and nearby areas

All are invited to a free screening of "Seattle is Dying" at 7 Stages, 1105 Euclid Avenue in Little Five Points, 7:30 pm, Tuesday, August 20.  

First broadcast in March 2019, this one-hour documentary explores the issues of drug addiction, mental illness, homelessness, and failed public policies in Seattle. It concludes with a look at innovative treatment solutions being pioneered in Rhode Island and a call to action. Its message speaks to some of the challenges facing the Little Five Points business district and also affecting parts of Poncey-Highland, Inman Park, Reynoldstown, Edgewood, and Candler Park.

Eric Johnson of KOMO News, the program's writer, producer, and narrator writes, "This program... asks the question, 'Why aren't we doing more? Why don't we have the courage to intervene in lives that are, in the face of grave sickness, reeling out of control?' It's called 'Seattle is Dying,' and I believe the title to be true. But it's not a hopeless program. There are ideas and concepts in the show that could start conversations about change."

Renew Atlanta/TSPLOST Survey/Update

 

February 26- March 7, 2019, the City of Atlanta hosted public engagement meetings in support of its Renew Atlanta Bond/TSPLOST program prioritization and rebaselining efforts.

The meetings were held at four locations – one in each quadrant of the City. The purpose of these meetings was to inform the public about the program’s status, funding shortfalls, and to receive feedback for consideration in prioritizing the project list. The format for the public engagement meetings consisted of two parts: 1) a general overview was presented by the City’s Deputy COO, Joshua Williams, and Renew Atlanta/TSPLOST Interim General Manager, Michele Wynn; 2) small-group breakout sessions were held to provide constituents with a more detailed overview of the three proposed prioritization scenarios and delved deeper into the project list. Constituents also had the opportunity to ask questions, provide suggestions to the staff recommended list, and leave comments for response and/or consideration. Throughout the public engagement meetings, Council President Moore and Council Members Westmoreland, Dickens, Bond, Farokhi, Ide, Smith, Shook, Matzigkeit, Hillis, Boone, Overstreet, and Sheperd attended one or more meetings.

March Porch Party

The March Porch Party is Friday, March 29, 2019 at 7:30 pm. Our hosts are Ann and Jeff Cramer at 1054 Austin Ave. All are welcome! Bring your drink-of-choice and an appetizer to share. We'll see you there!

Renew Atlanta/TSPLOST Update

This is the follow up letter from Renew Atlanta after last week's public meeting. Please fill out the survey. Under projects you support please select "Complete Streets" and add "Euclid Ave" and "N. Highland". 

On behalf of Renew Atlanta/TSPLOST Interim General Manager, Michele Wynn, thank you for attending our first round of Prioritization & Rebaselining Public Engagement Meetings. We know your time is valuable and we appreciate your interest and commitment in helping us during this prioritization effort. 

As we discussed in these meetings, the cost to deliver the full scope of the initial program considerably exceeds the funding available from the Renew Atlanta Bond and TSPLOST revenues. Thus, we are working diligently to transparently prioritize and re-baseline the initial program lists to deliver the greatest impact to Atlanta’s above-ground infrastructure and transportation network with the available funds. Through this re-baselining, we are dedicated to engaging you, the stakeholders, to help inform the process.

IP Projects at Risk/RenewAtlanta

Funding for RenewAtlanta projects are in jeopardy. The city has a "Prioritization & Rebaselining Initiative" on their website. There isn't enough money for all the projects to be completed. We'll have to fight for ours and we'll need your help. 

For several years our Transportation Committee, headed by Janice Darling, has been working with Renew Atlanta on two projects in the neighborhood. The N. Highland safety improvements from N. Highland to Alaska Ave. and the Euclid and Edgewood intersection.  Both projects have met neighborhood approval and the plans are complete. They only need funding. both plans include bike lanes and crosswalks. The N. Highland one also include loading zones, increased parking and ride share pickups. These safety improvements are part of the complete streets project with Renew Atlanta and are greatly needed. Anyone who has tried to cross N. Highland at Barcelona knows we need safety improvements along this very busy area.   

Two rounds of public engagement meetings will be held. One is this Wednesday, January 22, 1019 from 6:30-8:00 pm at Grady High School and the other one is Thursday, March 7, 2019 from 6:30-8:00 pm also at Grady. The more people we have at these meetings supporting our N. Highland Complete Streets Project the more likely we are to get funding. The city needs to know we want and need these improvement done.
