Fulton County needs input on consolidated planning document, annual action plan

FULTON COUNTY, Ga. -- Fulton County is in the process of planning and preparing its 5-year Consolidated Planning Document to determine the needs of the community in developing viable urban communities.  The plan provides decent housing, a suitable living environment and expanded economic opportunities principally for low and moderate- income persons.

The Consolidated Planning Process uses Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME), and Emergency Solution Grant (ESG) funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  The final Consolidated Plan document will describe the County’s plan to pursue the goals for all community planning and development programs serving Fulton County communities outside of the City of Atlanta, Roswell and Sandy Springs utilizing these federal grant dollars from HUD.

Woman shot at Residence Inn during apparent robbery


ATLANTA -- A woman was shot Monday morning after she says two men tried to rob her and force their way into her hotel room.

According to Atlanta Police spokesperson Kim Jones, it happened just before 6:30 a.m. at the Residence Inn on Piedmont Road.

The woman told police she and her boyfriend were walking their dog when two black men approached them as they were about to go back into their room.

She said one had a gun and they tried to force their way in the room. The woman said the suspect shot her dog, and then started shooting into the room.

The woman was shot in the arm and taken to the hospital.

Police arrested one suspect a short time later and are still looking for the second one.

WEATHER | 11Alive meteorologist Tracy Humphrey has your weekend forecast

Resurfacing on Interstate 20 in Rockdale and Newton counties, and concrete replacement on the west side of I-285 have been canceled for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

GDOT said it plans to move ahead with scheduled resurfacing on I-20 between Douglasville and Villa Rica, as it is very close to finishing the work -- well ahead of its projected November completion date. However, rain may briefly halt crews.

Fulton County Fire Rescue advises residents to maintain smoke alarms

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), almost two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from fires in properties without working smoke alarms.

The NFPA offers the following tips to help residents safeguard their homes from home fires:
