NPU-O Meeting Scheduled for Jan. 22

Leadership nominations, zoning and alcohol issues on the agenda.

Neighborhood Planning Unit-OP meets tonight, Jan. 22, at 6:30 p.m. at the Branham Recreation Center, 2051 Delano Dr. NE.

We will be nominating and electing a Chair, Co-Chair, Secretary, and an Atlanta Planning Advisory Board representative.

Let me be blunt. If more do not participate and step up to lead you will be abdicating NPU-O's role representing the community and essentially giving City of Atlanta government free reign to do as they will without input or oversight from the neighborhoods it impacts.The choice is yours!

Besides the usual informative Public Safety, Council, and City Department reports the following items are on the agenda for votes:
