NPU-V March Meeting on 3/9 @ 7pm!

Join us for our monthly meeting for residents of Neighborhood Planning Unit V! NPU-V encompasses the communities of Mechanicsville, Summerhill, Peoplestown, Pittsburgh, Adair Park, and Capitol Gateway.
 
The meeting will be held on Monday, March 9th, at 7pm. The host community is Mechanicsville and the meeting will be held at Dunbar Recreation Center (477 Windsor Street SW Atlanta, GA 30312).
 
The meeting agenda can be found here: https://www.atlantaga.gov/home/showdocument?id=45284
 
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!
