What is a Neighborhood Planning Unit?
The City of Atlanta is divided into twenty-five Neighborhood Planning Units or NPUs, which are citizen advisory councils that make recommendations to the Mayor and City Council on zoning, land use, and other planning issues. The NPU system was established in 1974 to provide an opportunity for citizens to participate actively in the Comprehensive Development Plan, which is the city’s vision for the next five, ten, and fifteen years. It is also used as a way for citizens to receive information concerning all functions of city government. The system enables citizens to express ideas and comment on city plans and proposals while assisting the city in developing plans that best meet the needs of their communities.
In which NPU does Candler Park Belong?
Candler Park belongs to NPU-N, along with Cabbagetown, Druid Hills, Inman Park, Lake Clair, Poncey-Highland, and Reynoldstown. In addition to those neighborhoods, Little 5 Points Community Center and Little 5 Points Business Association are represented in NPU-N.
