    Good morning everyone. This is a follow-up to my post yesterday about the final vote on the council budget. PLEASE READ THE ARTICLE. Below I will place two screenshots showing the vote in the non-binding resolution and the a screenshot showing that Michael Julian Bond and Andrea Boone switched their votes killing potential reform in the binding ordinance (I guess they hoped we would only pay attention to the 1st vote). Cleta Winslow was a straight no vote.


    The Ordinance amendment killed would not have committed the Council to any specific plan. It was a compromise that withheld funds that cannot be spent until January of 2021 anyway and placed it in a restricted account. It would have given the council till December 1 to enact any reforms to reimagine public safety. The ordinance would have created space for recommendations from the policing task force as well as the police to see what reforms should be enacted.


    In essence Council Members Boone, Winslow and Bond, with others, voted to keep the city from even considering a conversation around reform. This in my opinion is the bigger issue. Everyone gave lip service to the need for reform but denied space to potentially look at what should be done


    I have spoken with Antonio Brown and Jennifer Ide and would encourage you to head to their pages and read their full statements

    As part of the Stokes Park Proposal presented to the community earlier this month, the WCO President promised to present real estate comps to back the potential for selling the Stokes Avenue Property. 

    The report was compiled by Westview resident, Realtor with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Atlanta and former WCO Executive Board Member Orlando Hartwell. 

    The document can be downloaded here.

    From Orlando: "Here is the preliminary comparative market analysis (cma) The numbers are kind of all over the place. I narrowed it to within a mile radius of the subject property and roughly around the same or similar square footage. When it comes to raw land there are a few variables to be considered; the location of the lot and its desirability. With that said. There are 3 active properties and one under contract. The average asking price is 134,000. However there have been 2 closed properties with an average sales price (in the last 6 months) of 96,000. Taking into consideration the specifics of the property I would  put the value around about $120,000 dollars."

    At the May 4, 2020 WCO Virtual Meeting a proposal was presented to regarding the state of the community finances. WCO President Jason Hudgins proposed that the community take the following steps:

    1. Sell the property known as Stokes Park at 1556 Stokes Avenue.

    2. Use the proceeds to endow the WCO to eliminate the short term need for fundraising in the Post COVID-19 environment.

    3. Use the proceeds to fully realize the potential of the community garden located on South Gordon.

    4. Complete the longstanding community goal of creating a community 501c3.

    The text of the proposal is attached. The board asks that all comments and questions be submitted in writing  by May 28th to President@westviewatlanta.org so that they can be compiled into one document, answered and disseminated to the community. The community will take 30 days to comment and discuss, the June 1 WCO meeting will be reserved to discuss this proposal.

    You can read the proposal here: Stokes Park Proposal

    In an effort to ensure that Atlanta’s senior population is included in virtual meetings, NPU University is hosting a virtual class for our senior residents this Thursday, April 23rd at 10:30 a.m. The meeting will be easily accessible for all residents with or without internet access, including those who have landline phones, classic flip phones, smart phones, laptops, tablets or computers. Those who do not have internet access can join by calling (646) 558-8656, access code: 399 797 8529# from any phone. Those who have internet access can join in by using this link: https://zoom.us/j/3997978529 (Meeting ID: 399 797 8529).

    Our goal is to make the concept of virtual meetings less intimidating for seniors, dispel the myths about virtual meetings, and show seniors how they can stay connected to their communities and participate in the civic process while sheltering in place. We will explain to seniors how virtual meetings work, and take the time to answer their questions.

    While some have expressed concern that virtual meetings exclude seniors, we believe meeting virtually is actually more inclusive, since residents who would not otherwise have an opportunity to attend neighborhood or NPU meetings can now participate without leaving their homes. This means that seniors who don’t like to go out after dark, seniors without transportation, seniors who are homebound or have difficulty getting around, or even seniors who care for grandchildren can now attend NPU and neighborhood association meetings and stay connected to their communities. Since nearly all seniors have telephones, virtual meetings give NPUs the opportunity to reach more seniors than ever before. It isn’t the same as meeting in person, but it can get us through the stay-at-home orders until we can come together again. If you know anyone who would benefit from this meeting, please share this information with them. For more information on NPU University, please view the catalog or visit our website at npuatlanta.org/npuucatalog. For general updates, follow us on Facebook @npuatlanta.
