We are a group of neighbors, living downtown, who first met in November 2014 to determine the need for a new organization to represent downtown residents.
Recognizing that by the end of 2015, fully 25 percent of all Decatur residents will live in the downtown area, primarily in condos and apartments, we created the Downtown Decatur Neighbors to:
- Engage effectively with city government on quality of life issues including greenspaces; zoning and ordinances; walkability; safety; and seniors.
- Present ideas and gather support for improvements that enhance the livability of the downtown area for all neighbors.
- Enable downtown residents to learn of shared concerns and experiences so we can address these together.
- Encourage the creation of new relationships and the building of our growing downtown community.
Our September 2017 General Meeting will introduce the four candidates who are running for the District 1 seat on the City of Decatur Commission. To read the answers of each candidate to the seven questions posed by Decaturish, click the icon below:
