The meeting will be held on Monday, November 11, at 7pm. The host community is Pittsburgh and the meeting will be held at Ariel Bowen United Methodist Church (38 Arthur St SW, Atlanta, GA 30310).
The meeting agenda can be found here:
The City of Atlanta is divided into 25 Neighborhood Planning Units or NPUs, which are citizen advisory councils that make recommendations to the Mayor and City Council on zoning, land use, and other planning issues. The NPU system was established in 1974 to provide an opportunity for citizens to participate actively in the Comprehensive Development Plan, which is the city’s long-term vision for the next five, ten, and fifteen years into the future. It is also used as a way for citizens to receive information concerning all functions of city government.
See you there!

Hello Ms. Mary Gay,

It was so nice meeting you last Saturday at the NPU-V community forum. Dr. Jones and I were wondering if you knew of any community gardens that need maintenance, areas that need clearing of invasive plants, or historic locations that need to be maintain; we would love to be of assistance. If you know of locations or possibly other contacts please let us know. Also please see attached flyer for GYF hiring event on NOV 14th.

Thank you,
Ms. Bijan
