Join neighborhood leaders and residents from across metro Atlanta (with focus on communities south of I-20) to learn from national experts about strategies you can use to make your communities the best that they can be. Leading our communities through difficult challenges takes bold, innovative and resilient community leadership. This year's training will focus on two critical topics that are essential for thriving communities: 
Advocacy: Our goal is to help you -- as community residents --- be as effective as possible in advocating for your interests with local elected officials. You will learn tools and techniques to make local government work for your community by increasing your voice and representation in government. Learn how to educate public officials about issues in your community, to ensure they consider and reflect your community's best interest, and to hold them accountable when they don't. Amplify your voice to advocate for change that improves the quality of life in your neighborhood.  
Linking School and Community: Healthy communities have strong bonds with neighborhood schools. Learn practical strategies that communities have used successfully to improve local schools through grassroots organizing and strengthening of school-community links. Get tips to help you and your fellow residents work with your neighborhood school by strengthening after-school programs, improving communication between parents and school officials, making the school more accessible to the community and making community resources more accessible to the school. 
Who Should Attend?  This training event is ideal for concerned neighbors, formal neighborhood leaders, informal neighborhood leaders, HOA leaders and members, neighborhood associations, homeowners and renters, local business owners, neighborhood watch groups, faith and nonprofit organizations - and YOU!

Zoning Ordinance Update Phase II - Lots of info!

The City of Atlanta has been working for the past few years on overhauling its zoning ordinances, with the goal of streamlining its processes and updating the code to reflect its design goals as outlined in The Atlanta City Design document released early last year.  Since all changes to zoning ordinances must go through the NPUs before being picked up by the City, the Department of City Planning has been spearheading a public information campaign to let the citizens know what's going on.

Earlier this year, a series of "quick fix" changes known as Phase I made its way through the NPUs, but since Phase I occurred during the holidays and the January winter storm, many people felt ambushed by the vote regardless. In response, the City has made greater efforts to get ahead of these changes, including public meetings and presentations at the NPU.

The Planning Department sent us this podcast of one of the Phase II meetings, which we've embedded below. If you're interested in reading the master document outlining the City's goals in all of this, you can either go to or download a PDF copy of the book at (warning: 120MB file). There's also a presentation on Phase II changes specifically at
