ATA October 8th, 2020 Meeting Minutes


ATA’s monthly meeting was held via Zoom video conference call on Thursday October 8th 2020. Graham Coreil-Allen, interim vice president, opened the meeting and Deacon Tally led the residents in a prayer.  The minutes from the September 9th 2020 meeting were read by Anne Goncalves, secretary, and approved as read. President Barbara Anderson Dandy welcomed residents and partners and gave remarks. 


Residents welcomed Owen Stone, the Resource Recruiter for the Thread Program. The Thread Program has been in Baltimore for 16 years and works in 6 different high schools across the city working with students in the lower 25% of population academically.  The program works with students for 10 years.  There are multiple volunteers assigned to each student and many volunteers are needed.  Mr. Stone outlined what the volunteer commitment entails.  The Thread office, which is located in Mondawmin Mall, is currently closed but all programs are running virtually.  To make a connection with Thread go to or email

Chris Anderson, GOP candidate for City Council District 7 shared his vision for District 7 with residents.  Anderson lives near our neighborhood and feels that the city needs a change in government, which he feels the Republican party can provide.

Dan Midvidy, the President of Meadow Development Group, gave residents an update on 3400 Auchentoroly Terrace at Gwynns Falls Pkwy. The building is coming together nicely and units 1 through 5 will be available for viewing in the coming weeks and months.  Exterior lighting has just been installed. There will be sixteen units, with three being ADA accessible.  Meadow Development Group looks forward to showing the apartments to prospective tenants at the end of October.
