URGENT ACTION Euclidean (300px-height)NEEDED!

We need to turn out a big crowd on Tuesday, January 27 at two meetings scheduled to vote on the zoning code:  9:00 am & 6:30 pm!

Manual Maloof Auditorium
1300 Commerce Drive
Decatur, GA 30030

The county has scheduled the vote despite:

  • NOT having adequately answered the most important issues of appeal and standing
  • NOT delivering a digitized map to the community task force working diligently with the county
  • NOT giving Commissioner Nancy Jester, who is new to the board, adequate time for to digest the 500+ page document and community concerns
  • NOT giving adequate time for the community task force on the zoning code update to study and request final tweaks

We know the county is tired of wrestling with these important issues, but we strongly believe that the issues of appeal and standing for neighborhoods and communities need more consideration.

Please call the county commissioners MONDAY MORNING and ask for a deferral until the standing and appeal sections is strengthened:

We look forward to seeing you and your neighbors on Tuesday!

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!
