As I have said for years, there is more to intown SW Atlanta then dilapidated mortgage fraud houses! Within each community you’ll find pioneers etching a space in the city just right for them. It’s not hard to do- there are options, good options and we have neighbors to prove it! The writers and residents of Westview Bungalow had a chat with Creative Loafing…
for their contribution of bringing down our values?
FINALLY!!! My prayers are being answered. According to a letter from council Member Winslow to West End community forum:
” Mr. & Mrs. Ali, who own the Shell Gas Station at the corner of Ralph D. Abernathy Blvd and Langhorn Street have been issued a citation to go to court on Thursday, April 26th at 8:00 a.m. Atlanta Municipal Court is 150 Garnett Street, SW which is at the corner of Central Avenue and Garnett Street. For some time now, I have been talking to Mr. Ali about problems in and outside of his store. As a result of his non response, I had the Atlanta Fore department to go out and inspect the interior of his building for fire safety concerns. After the inspection, they issued a citation for him to come to court.
Wow! I thought it was JUST ME. I often wonder why we seem to have the worst service and the MOST gas stations than any other community in-town Atlanta? Not to mention how over priced they are!!
Any way- we are getting some action on this. If you can, please come to the courtroom tomorrow or send any letters of support for Ms. Winslow .
