Good evening,

I wanted to let you all know that arrests have been made in the robbery/shooting that occurred on Martina Dr. earlier this year (around February). Three suspects were arrested, and they have been linked to the series of robberies around the Georgia Tech campus during the same timeframe.

We are proud of our detectives that worked tirelessly on these cases and finally put these criminals in jail.

Thank you,

Where in midtown Atlanta could you possibly see tens of thousands of native shrubs and other plants, as well as an arboretum of about 12,000 trees? And a world-class sustainability plan with a major stormwater drainage project? No, not the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. It's Georgia Tech, and we have a special opportunity to get a tour led by Jason Gregory, Sr. Educational Facilities Planner and Landscape Architect.

Successful Ribbon Cutting at Expanded Peachtree Park Nature Trail

  Moms and babies in strollers joined District 7 Councilman Howard Shook and a variety of other neighbors and city officials in marking the official opening of the new Burke mini-park at the entrance to the Peachtree Park Nature Trail on Nov. 2.    The crowd of about 30 people enjoyed refreshments and cookies while children played on the new city-approved benches and 10 new fit stations in the park.     The park improvements were funded by Friends of Peachtree Park, supported by a $10,000 matching grant from Park Pride and a $2,000 grant for invasives removal from NPU-B. They represent the first phase of a five-year Master Plan for the Nature Trail.    Friends of Peachtree Park is a charitable organization organized by neighborhood residents to support capital improvements to the greenspaces of Peachtree Park. Donations are tax-deductible. For additional information, contact Robin Finley at 404-314-8929."

Online Security Incident Report Is Now Available

There is now an online Security Incident Report available on our website under Quick Links in the top navigation menu.

While security incidents can be reported via email (security@peachtreeparkatl.org) and/or the Security Hotline (404-939-4460), this online form is extremely useful because it provides fields for all of the useful information we need.  When a form is submitted, the following things take place:

  1. The form is automatically emailed to the Security Committee and both of our Security Patrol Officers.
  2. Information from the report is captured in an online database that the Security Committee can use to generate reports to be shared and discussed at meetings, as well as with the Security Patrol Officers, APD, etc.

Using the form makes the entire process seamless and allows the Security Committee to perform its duties in a much more efficient, effective manner.

If you have any questions about the form or about reporting security incidents in general, please do not hesitate to contact the Security Committee.
