Focusing our efforts to stay true to our mission
“Connect neighbors, foster civic engagement, and steward the neighborhood’s beauty.”
our new mission statement for the Druid Hills Civic Association
Defining our Areas of Focus
We will work to Conserve Our Natural Environment by protecting our creeks, rebuilding our tree canopy and increasing our neighborhood's participation in the Wildlife Sanctuary Certification Program.
We will Maintain and Protect our Built Environment by being a valued partner to homeowners navigating historic guidelines, zoning or land-use matters. We'll invest in amenities that will enhance our community such as adding Druid Hills signage at gateways to the neighborhood.
We want to Unite Residents and Build Community through opportunities for neighbors to network, enjoy a variety of planned community events, and give us input through a yearly listening survey. We want more neighbors to engage with our organization through membership and to regularly volunteer time in our beautiful neighborhood.
A big goal for the DHCA is to Keep Residents Safe by creating a proactive, multi-year Transportation Plan to address issues related to vehicles, public transit, bicycles and pedestrians. We'll partner with government agencies to seek funding and implement the plan. We'll also advance neighborhood safety by collaborating with the Druid Hills Patrol, and further strengthen our neighborhood watch program.
We will Consistently and Clearly Communicate to make sure residents are in-the-know about what's going on in Druid Hills. We are reorganizing our website so resources - like historic guidelines - are easy to find and understand.
