Replace Your Worn Yard Sign

Is your yard sign looking worse for wear? John Wolfinger has a big supply on his front porch. Members should feel free to stop by and pick up a replacement sign. These do have the new name and logo and let our officers know you are a member. The signs also deter those who might be thinking about targeting our neighborhood, and serve as a marketing tool to encourage other residents to join. John lives at 1054 Vance Ave.

Thank You Virginia-Highland

We Did It!

The Dine-out at Osteria 832 this past week was a great success and put us over the finish line.

With your help and the help of our partners, we have raised enough money to install FIVE License Plater Readers in Virginia-Highland. Locations will be finalized in the next few weeks and then we will turn this over to the Atlanta Police Foundation and Flock Safety for install and operation. 

In addition to Osteria, we want to thank other commercial property owners and businesses in the neighborhood making significant donations including:

Doug Landau (Dark Horse and Neighbor's)
Stuart Meddin (The Meddin Company)
Scott Stern (Highland Real Estate)
Fifth Group (La Tavola & El Taco)

Special Thanks to our key partners, and to all of you. Check out the honor roll of donors.
