Center for Civic Innovation launches NPU study
Atlanta Headlines March 19, 2019
Atlanta's Center for Civic Innovation (CCI) launched a multi-year study of Atlanta's neighborhood NPUs. The Atlanta-based non-profit is looking at the neighborhood advocacy system that was created in 1974 by the City to allow citizens' voices to be heard. CCI will examine how this is working and will recommend changes.
CCI: "The NPU Initiative is an effort by the Center for Civic Innovation to improve community engagement in Atlanta. Our mission is to address issues of inequality in our city through solutions built from the ground up, and we believe that finding and supporting community solutions to community problems starts with making sure that everyone can be heard."
