Message from City of Decatur:
Attention Decatur Residents:
New Tree Canopy Conservation Ordinance
The Decatur City Commission voted to adopt a new Tree Canopy Conservation Ordinance that will go into effect on July 7, 2014. The purpose of this update is to modernize the current ordinance (which dates back to 1988) and to encourage the conservation of existing tree canopy.
To learn more about the Tree Canopy Conservation Ordinance, a public information meeting has been planned for Monday, June 23rd from 6PM to 8PM at the Leverett Public Works Building, 2635 Talley Street, Community Room.
To read the new ordinance, please visit the following website Tree Canopy Conservation Ordinance<http://www.decaturga.com/index.aspx?page=722>
The Design, Environment, and Construction Division is currently working to finalize processes and procedures to implement the new ordinance. More information will be available soon. Questions? Contact John Maximuk, email@example.com<

Sorry this is a bit late.
The 30 MPH residential zoning for Sycamore Drive passed on May 5th and the signs were placed on May 19th. A residential speed zone means police no longer have to allow a 10 MPH cushion before giving a ticket. This will serve to prevent excessive speeding down our residential streets here in Decatur Heights.
Warning citations will be given until June 19th, with an exception for those who would have been speeding based on the previous speed limits.
What is the LCI?: The Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) is a program of the Atlanta Regional Commission that awards planning grants on a competitive basis to local governments and non-proﬁt organizations. Grants are used to prepare plans for the enhancement of existing centers and corridors consistent with regional development policies.
The LCI Medline Plan Celebration is this Thursday from 6-8pm. Should be an informative and fun time. This will be the final planned public meeting
An optional bike tour of the area will begin at 7pm. The event will be held at the International Community School which is located at 2418 Woodland Trail (at the very end of Medlock Rd).
The MANA Community has been following this process since the beginning: http://www.medlockpark.org/search/label/Medline%20LCI
