EABA Public Safety Forum 9.19.23 | Follow-Up + Minutes

Wednesday, September 20, 2023 12:18 PM | Anonymous

Y'all showed up last night!

Thanks to all who attended and supported our September General Meeting/Public Safety Forum. We heard from APD Zone 6, Councilmember Liliana Bakhtiari's office and Intown Cares reps. Huge thanks to our public safety chair Micki Silvestros of East Atlanta Copy for pivoting and taking the reigns at this timely meeting.

We enjoyed great food and drinks from our sponsors Grant Central East, Resurgens Legal Council, & AtlantaPurus. Our two featured businesses showed up as well! Amazing food from EAV Farmers Market and a raffle (won by Scott Lootens) from Atlanta Intown Disc Golf!


It's encouraging to see and hear the support for our little slice of #EastAtlanta that we all love so dearly. 

When it comes to the public safety of EAV, we all know that things can be done better. 

Let's keep the ball rolling with thoughtful discussions, plans and actions towards a safer #EAV for ALL.

Public Safety Next Steps:

• Concerns with police enforcement regarding harassment, drug dealing, property destruction, etc can be sent to our Zone 6 Commander, Major Andrea Webster at awebster@atlantaga.gov and Sgt M. Stenson at mastenson@atlantaga.gov

Intown Cares will be starting with their dedicated social worker asap.

• Town Hall with Councilmember Liliana Bakhtiari: date and format will be announced soon.

• Show support towards village cleanups with Georgia Works. Sponsors are needed!

• Attend EABA/EACA meetings regularly! Voice your opinions & concerns! Thoughtful discussions will lead to actionable plans.

It takes a Village.
