Renovate or Restore and live intown..

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…

Will the Gas Stations in the West End be held accountable…..

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 .
