What is a Community Council?
Community Councils are advisory groups of DeKalb County citizens that review applications for land use map amendments and zoning applications such as special land use permits, rezones, and amendments to the text of the zoning ordinance. There are five Community Councils, one for each Board of Commissioners district.
Why is it important for me to attend Community Council meetings?
BE IN THE KNOW! At the Community Council meetings, the public has an opportunity to discuss zoning or land use map amendment applications that will eventually be decided upon by the Board of Commissioners. After the Community Council meetings, the public has opportunities to comment on applications at public hearings that are held by the Planning Commission and by the Board of Commissioners.
How do I find my district?
You may use the Elected Official Search tool to find your district.
When are the meetings?
The Councils meet every other month if there are zoning or land use map amendment applications for property within their district.
