What is an NPU?
NPU stands for Neighborhood Planning Unit. The NPU serves as an Advisory Committee to the City of Atlanta on issues relating to Zoning, Land Use, Licensing, and other planning issues. The NPU system began in 1974 under the leadership of then Mayor Maynard Jackson to provide an opportunity for Atlanta's citizens to actively participate in the Comprehensive Development Plans, which is the city's vision for the next 5, 10, or 15 years. It is also a means for residents to receive information concerning all functions of city government. The system enables citizens to express ideas and comment on City plans and proposals along with assisting the city in developing plans which best meet the needs of area residents.
The footprint of NPU-L includes the Historic Westside neighborhoods of Vine City and English Avenue. Membership is open to anyone aged 18 or older whose primary residence falls within the boundaries of NPU-L, and to any organization, institution, or agency which owns property or has a place of business within NPU-L.
NPU-L Meetings are held in regular session on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm. Location varies and is TBD. Please check for updates regarding meeting location.
