Stephon Ferguson is aware of the large income disparity in Atlanta, one of the country’s highest. He knows that this is completely unacceptable and will take firm measures to resolve the problems that keep all Atlanta residents from enjoying the same quality of life.

He will also take measures to secure affordable and accessible housing for more residents of Atlanta than ever before. Our city is growing at an exponential rate, and we as responsible leaders of the community must ensure that both new and long-time residents are able to find quality homes to raise their families and make a living. He will create a Homelessness Task Force to provide recommendations for long-term solutions to the real housing problems we face, address mental health services, and provide for job training across the city. For temporary financial assistance, Ferguson will also develop a system for rapid re-housing for those that have lost their homes. By working with the Atlanta Workforce Development Agency, we can help get the less fortunate back on their feet.

Ferguson will also undertake efforts to combat the serious blight issues that the city faces. With vacant and abandoned properties blocking economic development from reaching its maximum potential, he will create a Task Force that will oversee, catalog, and recommend solutions on vacant lots and blighted properties. He will also target owners of blighted properties to remediate their blighted properties to better suit the needs of the Atlanta community. Health and education are the cornerstones of a high quality of life, and Stephon Ferguson will maintain partnerships and communication with a number of organizations to ensure that residents of Atlanta receive the best quality of life as possible. These include the Atlanta Public School system, local higher education, health services, and governmental agencies.

Stephon Ferguson knows that sometimes, bad things happen to good people. That’s why he will promote efforts to combat homelessness, mental illness, and substance abuse with compassion and understanding. He will use the $25 million dollars afforded by the Housing Opportunity Bond to Atlanta’s advantage by constructing affordable housing for Atlanta’s lower income residents. He will commit to reforming housing in each of the 12 Council Districts so that all in Atlanta can enjoy a roof over their family’s heads.

The Atlanta BeltLine Project is an ongoing effort to refurbish abandoned railroad tracks in the city into safe recreational parks and pathways. Ferguson fully supports expanding the program to give more families and children the ability to enjoy their city in a sustainable way.
