Demolition is now underway in three Westside Atlanta neighborhoods.

This marks the beginning of work for the Westside Security Plan.

It is a neighborhood revitalization plan that focuses on increasing security and police visibility, while also deterring crime.

Developers will install cameras, and security patrols will be assigned to the neighborhoods, but officials say the most exciting part of this plan is the housing.

This plan will affect the English Avenue, Vine City, and Pittsburgh areas.

The Atlanta Police Department and the Atlanta Police Foundation organized the project, with help from the Westside Future Fund.
