Help the SOMA (South of Marietta in Downtown Atlanta) Community bring attention to the Fox Market liquor store, located at 90 Broad Street, Atlanta, Ga. Fox Market has become a public nuisance and blight on the local neighborhood. Within a 12 month rolling period twenty-six arrests were made at this location, the majority for drug related crimes.
Residents, visitors and employees of the Midtown/ Downtown area are tired of these convenience stores and other businesses acting as havens for street activity including trespassing, illegal drug activity and illegal gang activity.
We are tired of the vagrancy outside of these convenience stores. We are tired of individuals aggressively panhandling local residents, tourists and business patrons. We are tired of the neighborhood being tarnished by a handful of irresponsible business owners.
Call to Action: We Need Your Support!!
• We want the Atlanta City Council to resurrect legislation introduced by Natalyn Archbong, allowing the Atlanta Chief of Police to issue cease and desist notices to building owners being used for illegal activity. We want the owners of buildings that lease to convenience stores, like Fox Market, to be issued fines when their buildings are found to be deemed a ‘nuisance property’.
Kwanza hall recently posted an article about this problem on his District 2 Facebook page.
We need to pass legislation that will give the police and the city power to help us.
Please support us by signing the petition in our effort to protect the quality of life in the City of Atlanta.
