IN A NUTSHELL:
The MPSA calls upon the Midtown community to be observant, to network with neighbors, and most importantly to support the neighborhood patrol.
GOVERNANCE & CORE OBJECTIVE:
Effective 28 June 2016, the Georgia Secretary of State issued the dissolution order:
MIDTOWN/PONCE SECURITY ALLIANCE, LTD. a Domestic Nonprofit Corporation
has been duly dissolved, cancelled or terminated on 06/28/2016 under the laws of the State of Georgia by the filing of documents in the office of the Secretary of State and by the paying of fees as required by the
Official Code of Georgia Annotated and the Rules and Regulations promulgated there under. Attached hereto is a true and correct copy of said documents.
History – In 2003, the MPSA was incorporated in the State of Georgia as the “Midtown/Ponce Security Alliance, LTD” as a “domestic nonprofit corporation.” A group of Midtowners formed a task force uniting the residential and business community in order to more effectively address lingering criminal and nuisance activity incongruent with the unfolding renaissance of the neighborhood we call home. These efforts resulted in the establishment of the Midtown Ponce Security Alliance. The MPSA Board of Directors – consisting of your neighbors – governs the organization according to its bylaws. We hold 501(c)4 status, which makes us tax-exempt but not tax-deductible.
Future: The MPSA membership vote to merge MPSA into MNA (Midtown Neighbors Association) is now in effect. MPSA is a committee of MNA www.midtownatlanta.org
The MPSA serves the Midtown community with a singular focus on public safety and security issues affecting the neighborhood we proudly call home. As our sole objective, we pursue a vision of a safe environment for the Midtown community, with particular emphasis on funding our community patrol through membership and sponsorship. We also keep the neighborhood aware of factors generating criminal and nuisance activity, and coordinate neighborhood efforts toward eliminating those phenomena.
