Police Recruit Housing Complex Groundbreaking

January 2020

Mayor Bottoms joined City officials, the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, and community partners to break ground on a new housing complex on North Avenue in West Atlanta. The complex is part of the Atlanta Police Foundation’s Secure Neighborhoods program designed to reduce crime, improve community policing and provide affordable housing to Atlanta police officers. Secure Neighborhoods offers sworn APD police officers affordable options and incentives to purchase a home that has been renovated or built from the ground up. This program is part of the Westside Security Plan Initiative and is currently focused in three target neighborhoods: English Avenue, Vine City and Pittsburgh.

The brave men and women that serve our police department deserve to live in the city they protect. The transformation taking place on the Westside of Atlanta is a key example of what can happen when we harness the power of public-private partnerships. Thank you to the Arthur M. Blank Foundation and all of our partners for keeping safety in mind as you invest into building a better, equitable One Atlanta.
