Crime and arrest stats left at table
Q: Would like to be able to attend court dates for crimes that affect our area. Can you please communicate the dates better? Q: What does quality of life mean? A: Urinating in public. Walking in the middle of the street. Some property crimes fall under there, such as squatting in vacant houses. Q: Do you ever make arrests for vacant dumping? A: You need to call right away so you can catch them and get a tag number. Q: There are two places on University that are particular hot spots for automotive dumping by a particular company. A: Will look into it. If you see it, try to document it with a picture you can give to a policeman.
Please feel free to e-mail him with any neighborhood issues you have.
President’s Report (Darin)
Murphy Triangle Rezoning vote July 9th at NPU-X. Moratorium is ending on I2. Darin encourages our support for moving from I2 to I1.

Education Committee (Paul)
Meeting for input on repurposing of CVE by Atlanta Public Schools, first priority given to charter shcools, but none wanted to move in. Atalnta Technical and Metropolitan Colleges have shown interest. They gave presentations on their visions and it was decided that Atlanta Metropolitan had a vision more engaged with the community. Next meeting July 28th at CVE at 7 pm with both schools, then NPU-X will vote. Both want to move in immediately. Q: Did they mention youth programs or mentoring? A: Yes they did. Encourage you to come to next meeting. They are now a four year school and are expanding their programs.Q: What about specifically for at-risk youth? A: That’s a no-brainer-We should try to link them with Perkerson Elementary and make this happen. New principal at Perkerson is Sean Bender. Paul is very positive about him. Want community to meet him and a community event in the park this July “Popsicles in the Park”
