 ZONING CODE: TAKE ACTION NOW

The  Zoning Code Update (ZCU) group have focused on strengthening the voice of the communities and neighborhoods in zoning decisions. However, the proposed code presently favors developers and county staff, and makes the citizens’ right of appeal complicated and extremely difficult.

Please contact your commissioners by January 13 and push them to stand up for these recommendations: summary | full document Euclidean (300px-height)

DO YOU THINK DEKALB COUNTY IS IN NEED OF REFORM?

WE’RE ALMOST THERE!

ImageProxy.mvcThanks to an outpouring of generosity from people like you, our legal bill has dropped again! It’s now less than $8,000, which we think is pretty good considering it was $25,000 this summer! 

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!

Please consider making a gift of $50, $100, $500 or more today. We have monthly giving options available tooThank you!
