Our Work

One of ATA’s initiatives is to create and maintain a crime free environment that focuses on our residence’s concerns about drug trafficking, drug addiction, and unsupervised juveniles. All of these factors contribute to our resident’s concern about their well-being and personal property, which has an affect on their quality of life. We have addressed these challenges by partnering with: The Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood, City and State Elected Officials; The Western District Police Department; The Community Relations Unit at Western District; The State’s Attorney’s Office; and by providing the Community Liaison with our Impact Statement.

One of ATA’s major projects with respect to our mission was to apply for Historic District Designation. We requested that our community be designated as a Baltimore City Historic District as a means of protecting the community’s buildings and structures and to insure and preserve the aesthetic integrity of the community’s unique heritage. Our effort were rewarded on October 26, 2004 when the City of Baltimore designated all nine block of Auchentoroly Terrace as a Historic District. In 2015 the entire neighborhood was added to the National Register of Historic Places as the Auchentoroly Terrace Historic District.
