CoCard can be found in the beautiful community of Decatur, Georgia. Although our grassroots community is one of the most economically sound, and intriguing in the metropolitan Atlanta area, it still requires many improvements.
Many members of the community are either aware of, or actively involved in a community uplift project entitled the ‘Unified Development Ordinance’,. For those who aren’t, ‘UDO’ is a collaborative citizen effort initiated due to the rapid economic and residential development of Decatur. This project has been put in place to help combat a plethora of conflicting regulations that have been in place long before community uplift began.
A majority of the UDO consists of cleaning and tightening Decatur’s library of existing development regulations, forming a unified document for practice. A small portion consists of community gatherings and informational meetings, organized with the intention to reach a consensus on regulations that are particularly hard to agree on.
These meetings discuss various issues in the community that play large roles in lifestyle, including: zoning categories for different residential demographics, sustainability for the environment and resources, storm water protocol for residents, and community character.
