So much is assumed by the appearances on the outside. The Fulton County told us during the site selection process that some of an edition would probably go, but they would restore it and add to it. Many in the neighborhood fought for this site as a way to preserve history and get a new library in the process. They are taking the cheap way out and ignoring the process by not sharing the information in a timely manner. They may have not followed protocol as it may be in a Historic District if the process is complete. There is plenty of room on Metropolitan for new buildings. Most of the land south of there is vacant or filled with poorly maintained big box stores and parking lots. Let's save a few of what is left for the future.
As a 2 year resident was broken into while away from 5pm - 1 am. They came in through my security door in the back. Police responded fairly quickly, but I have no next door neighbors, so I rely on myself. What bothered me was over the summer the police would drive around in the evening with flashing lights on giving me the impression of a military state. They say it works. I think driving around slow as a car and looking around would be better to catch someone then warning blocks away that they are coming by. More presence during the day should be implements as well, especially in the areas where complaints are made.
Residents should be more aware of their environment. Curtains on windows. Secure doors and lower windows and do not put boxes out on the street of new things bought. Walk around and see what the bad people might see from the outside.
Just one of the many color I have seen.
