The Decatur Neighborhood Alliance (DNA) is an informal organization representing all neighborhood associations, condominium owners groups and block organizations that have been identified within the City of Decatur. The goal of the organization, which formed in 2000, is to meet twice a year (on the fourth Wednesday in April and October) to share information and encourage interaction between neighborhoods . A database of contact information for neighborhood groups is regularly updated to help improve communication within the city. The DNA group is an outgrowth of the Decatur Round Tables project. For more information call Lee Ann Harvey, 678-553-6548, or email LeeAnn.Harvey@decaturga.com.

420 W. Trinity Place (at Electric Avenue)
Decatur Neighborhood Alliance will meet on Wednesday, April 22 at 6:30 p.m. in the newly renovated Ebster Recreation Center in the Beacon Municipal Center. The Lifelong Community Advisory Board will present findings from the Lifelong Decatur survey that was completed by over 630 residents. The survey was designed to obtain information from City of Decatur residents about current and future needs of its citizens. The majority of survey respondents indicated that they have a strong desire to continue to live in their homes. They also recognized that there are factors that might hinder their ability to stay in their current home. The board will discuss next steps to make Decatur a place where people can live throughout their lifetime, regardless of age, ability or economic status.
Representatives from Decatur neighborhood associations, condominium associations, block associations, and anyone interested in starting a neighborhood group are invited to attend. Stay after the meeting for a tour of Ebster Recreation Center and learn about the history of the Beacon Community.
Limited parking is available in the lot on Electric Avenue next to the City Schools of Decatur administrative building. Free parking is also available in the DeKalb County parking deck on Trinity at Commerce Drive. The entrance to Ebster is on Electric Avenue.
Please call 678-553-6548 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your attendance and/or update your neighborhood association listing that is currently posted on the website.
