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.

Decatur Neighborhood Alliance will meet on Wednesday, October 22 at 6:30 p.m. at the Eloise Leveritt building, 2635 Talley Street. The recently renovated building houses Decatur Public Works Department, which includes the Design, Environment and Construction (DEC) Division. City Schools of Decatur Facilities Maintenance Department also shares space in the building.
Representatives from Decatur neighborhood associations, condominium associations, block associations, and anyone interested in starting a neighborhood group are invited to attend. Find out more about the tree ordinance and learn from Decatur’s Landscape Infrastructure Coordinator how to measure your tree canopy. You will discover how the new DEC Division can help with “one-stop shopping” for permitting, inspections, engineering, and other related services. An update will also be provided on the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO).
The Lifelong Community Advisory also would like to hear how you communicate with your neighbors who do not have internet access. Please let us know how you can help pass along city information to these neighbors.
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.
