Come hear the latest on the zoning code, our breakfast with state legislators, and other efforts happening in our county!
The vote on DeKalb County’s new zoning code has been postponed until March. Thank you to everyone who wrote the county commissioners and attended the January 27 meetings!
We strongly believe that the issues of appeal and standing for neighborhoods and communities need to be strengthened. Please call on your commissioners to today to ask them to continue to work with the task force to make this code better serve residents:

OUR DEBT HAS DROPPED AGAIN!
For more than two years, Good Growth DeKalb worked diligently to fend off the Walmart at Suburban Plaza.
While we were ultimately unsuccessful in our efforts, we have made a substantial difference for our community, none more important than letting our collective voice be heard!
SUBURBAN LANES TO CLOSE!?
Last year Suburban Lanes celebrated 50 years in Decatur and now this institution is hoping to stay at Suburban Plaza. According to Decaturish.com, the bowling alley is paying discounted rent and Selig says it cannot keep it.
One of the bowling alley’s owners has started an online petition to let Selig know how much the bowling alley means to you and the community!
P.S. If you’re interested in unleashing your inner Dude, the alley may be for sale …
