Carjacking on Friday, October 14

IPNA Public Safety was made aware of a carjacking around 6 am on Friday, October 14.  This occurred in the area of 240 Highland Avenue.  The victim was a woman who was accosted at gunpoint by four men.  She was not harmed but the suspects fled in her vehicle.

Since learning of this we have been working to obtain information from APD zone 6 via our IPNA Security Patrol coordinator, Sgt. Soukup.  What we know at this point is that the vehicle was found in Clayton County and is being processed by APD zone 6 for fingerprints, etc.  We also know there is an APD camera in the vicinity and investigators have been reviewing the footage.

We will continue to stay abreast of developments in this case and will report on anything of significance. We should have both IPNA security patrol and APD zone 6 officers at this week's IPNA meeting to answer any questions. 

Vehicle break-ins/damage in Inman Park

As per Tom Soukoup with the Atlanta Police Department, on Friday October 7, between 4 and 5 am, numerous Inman Park residents had their vehicles broken into with windows smashed. The perpetrators were obviously looking for something of value but were breaking into vehicles without anything being visible.  Reports were filed by victims and some camera footage has been provided to the investigation unit. 

APD zone 6 has committed to adding additional patrols in Inman Park immediately. IPNA Public Safety will continue to get updates on the investigation and will report on anything of significance. 

If you have any information that might help in the investigation, such as camera footage, please send to the investigator, Officer Towns, at this email: [email protected]

MR-MU Vote at October 20th IPNA Meeting

Hello Inman Park Neighbors:

At the October 20th IPNA meeting, we will be discussing and voting on the proposed MR-MU Zoning. There have been a number of changes to the legislation and I have attached an update on the process and a breakdown of the significant changes. I am attaching a revised presentation that incorporates these changes as well as the ordinance that clearly shows the changes to the ordinance from last month and today.

In an effort to keep the meeting from running too long, I recommend that everyone read the breakdown, the actual ordinance, review the presentation and formulate your questions. All questions will be typed into the chat feature and will be answered in order. We will then discuss each section of the changes and take a vote on each section. We will utilize the hand raise function for all discussion. Each person will have 2 minutes to provide feedback.

Fact Sheet & Amended Ordinance

Hello neighbors:

As many of you may know, the City of Atlanta’s Department of Planning along with Councilman Amir Farokhi, have introduced three pieces of legislation and of those three, two are “text amendments” to the existing zoning code that propose rezoning properties located within a half mile of the MARTA from residential (R-4, R4-A, and R-5) to MR-MU (Mixed Residential-Multi-Family). This is proposed across the city and for the last two months, there has been discussions at the NPU’s and in the neighborhoods regarding what the impact of these text amendments will be on our neighborhoods. The original proposed text amendments have been revised and the documents attached represent those changes. Attached is the revised legislation, the map for the Inman Park properties that will be impacted, as well as a very user-friendly fact sheet that outlines the changes and why the city feels these changes are important.
