What is a Neighborhood Planning Unit?
The City of Atlanta is divided into 25 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 long-term vision for the next five, ten, and fifteen years into the future. It is also used as a way for citizens to receive information concerning all functions of city government.

NEIGHBORHOODS FOR NPU-E:
Neighborhood Planning Units (NPUs) 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 5, 10, and 15 years. It is also used as a way for the citizens to receive information concerning all functions of City government. The system enables the citizens to express ideas and comment on City plans and proposals while assisting the City in developing plans which best meet the needs of different areas.
NPUs meet on a monthly basis to consider community concerns. Membership is open to anyone 18 years or older whose primary residence is within the NPU, or any corporation, organization, institution or agency, which owns property or has a place of business or profession within the NPU. See the Bureau of Planning’s NPU Page for more details. For a complete listing of all NPU Neighborhoods click here.

NPU-E COMMITTEE STRUCTURE
NPU-E Executive Committee
The NPU-E Executive Committee is composed of representatives from all of the NPU-E neighborhoods. It meets every first Tuesday of the month to vote on applications on its agenda. The Executive Committee formally votes on recommendations from its sub-committees. The Executive Committee will only consider applications that have meet with its designated sub-committee. Applicants who have not meet with the designated sub-committee may differ until such time that they may meet with sub-committee at their regularly scheduled public meeting or they may proceed through the review process with a vote to oppose from the NPU-E.
NPU-E Sub-committees are designated committees of the NPU-E. They are grouped by neighborhood such that each neighborhood will maintain a set of committees to review, provide feedback and recommendations on Liquor licenses, Land Use and Festival Permits. Sub-Committee provide recommendations (ratified by the neighborhood Board of Directors) to the NPU-E Executive Committee for consideration.
Sub-committees meet at regularly scheduled times each month. Applicants should consult the directly effected neighborhood for times. All sub-committee meetings are open to the public.
