A group of Westview neighbors joined forces with Councilmember Cleta Winslow to clean up illegally dumped tires within the neighborhoods. Winslow sponsored a “tire amnesty” day to enable communities who have fallen victims to illegal tire dumpings to bring the tires to a designated location free of charge.
Illegal tire dumpings have become such a problem that even 11Alive came out to cover the story. Read the story and watch the video: “Neighbor to Dumpers: ‘Shame on You’“
Mark Malaguerra of Westview was featured on 11Alive News last night. Mark is the former President of the Westview Community Organization and has lived in Westview for seven years. The article and broadcast report only mentioned West End, but a lot of the footage was actually of Westview. Even with all our efforts people still seem to get the neighborhoods confused.
The story talks about how mortgage fraud swept through the area in the early to mid 2000’s and really hurt the community. They also talk about the positive side of the situation, which is a lot of wonderful old homes available for half the prices you would find in other intown Atlanta neighborhoods.
If you would like a walking tour of Westview please contact Scott Smith at (404) 752-6423.
