FirstService Residential Co-Hosts Midtown Safety Panel Discussion
The event, which was held at Viewpoint Condominium, a FirstService Residential-managed high-rise, brought together more than 50 leaders from community associations and local businesses along Midtown’s Peachtree corridor. The panelists included Atlanta City Councilman Kwanza Hall, Kevin Green, president and CEO of Midtown Alliance, and Major Scott Kreher, Zone 5 Commander for the Atlanta Police Department.
“Meetings such as the recent forum are a great way to connect condo association leaders and building management directly with the best local resources,” said Atlanta City Councilmember Kwanza Hall. “I was pleased to participate with my colleagues from APD Zone 5 and Midtown Alliance and look forward to similar meetings in the future.”
The evening’s discussion focused on public safety and crime in the Midtown area – from vagrancy and loitering to homelessness and aggressive panhandling – all issues that are relatively new to the Peachtree area.
“Creating an opportunity for conversation with Midtown’s leaders is extremely rewarding. We look forward to continuing the dialogue on how we can improve the living experience for our residents,” said Ashley Pafford, business development manager, FirstService Residential, who moderated the event. “One of the cornerstones of FirstService Residential’s mission is to enhance the lifestyle of every resident in the communities we manage. This discussion and the combined efforts that will be made to address these concerns, are an extension of that mission.”
