Atlanta has long formally recognized some 240 neighborhoods as distinct political units, including the ten in District 7. An elected board, officers, and president represent each. It is my experience that these entities are always on the lookout for new community-minded neighbors to pitch in. Please consider contacting your neighborhood president to find out how you can contribute to the safety, stability, and overall quality of life of your neighborhood. The latest contact listing I have is:

Additionally, these neighborhoods send forth representatives to larger advisory forums as part of Atlanta’s unique Neighborhood Planning Unit framework. The NPUs meet on a regular basis to debate development and land-use policies, and, most importantly, respond to pending development projects. Although their findings are advisory, these recommendations are a very influential component of the development process.
With the exception of the Brookwood Hills, the above neighborhoods are grouped in Neighborhood Planning Unit B, which meets at the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00 PM (Cathedral of Christ the King, 2699 Peachtree Rd. NE).Brookwood Hills is part of NPU E, which meets the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 PM (Peachtree Christian Church, 1580 Peachtree St.).
NPU-B Sally Silver (404) 261-7854.
NPU-E Michael Rothman, Chair (404) 597-7416
