LLCC has been instrumental in organizing both the residential and commercial interests in our neighborhoods to effectively plan for and bring about meaningful change. Through its work with the Georgia Conservancy and Perkins + Will, LLCC has positioned our community to effectively plan in a cross jurisdictional, inclusive, and transparent fashion. But beyond good planning, LLCC has worked effectively with other organizations and government entities to implement these plans thereby positively shaping the future of our communities for years to come.

LLCC serves as an advocate, educator and facilitator for proactive community input and improvement - to enhance our physical environment and mobility, preserve our history and natural resources, support a higher quality of life for our residents, and promote market success for area businesses. LLCC is uniquely positioned to coordinate the efforts of diverse neighborhood associations, commercial property owners and businesses, across three jurisdictions - the City of Atlanta, DeKalb County and our state government, particularly the Georgia Department of Transportation.

Turning arguements into action, the LLCC helps three neighborhoods act as one in finding common good and then making it happen. Saving creeks and creating fresh beauty in suburbia? Check. Hispanic neighbors wanting English instruction? Check. Stronger public schools with a bigger voice in a large system? Check! Best of all, giving even contentious neighbors a feeling of being heard. That's where so many groups end, with bruised feelings and pushy bullies running off moderates. Good for LLCC for steering to the middle of the road.

LLCC has no paid management yet the directors are dedicated, wise and extremely hard working. This organization has surpassed my expectations that it would be just one more argumentative neighborhood group dominated by the most vocal. LLCC "gets things done" tackling difficult, time consuming projects with astonishing success. We moved here because it was a convenient commute to our jobs. After 15 years living here and now retired, I feel much better having these diligent, good natured folks engaged in improvement and protection of our attractively diverse in-town community.

The LLCC has been an amazingly progressive group. We have worked with them for several years now, and they have put in place an innovative and robust community platform. They continue to push towards a highly operational, efficient, inclusive, and beneficial organization to help ensure the best possible outcomes for the component neighborhoods, and commercial stakeholders. They have worked tirelessly to put all of this in place and should be supported in these continued efforts.

In the beginning of the first 6 months I helped form LLCC, Today I sit on the board of LLCC and I know, this non -profit group is very instrumental with the visioning of neighborhood planning. LLCC is a good source for sharing information and getting it out to the neighbors or businesses.

Our neighborhoods are under attack by exploding growth in an area northeast of Atlanta downtown. There are three juridictions, Atlanta, Fulton County and De Kalb County. We are just trying to preserve an older, established gourp of properties. I live in the area Woodland Hills. How did it get that name you may ask? TREES, TREES......and more TREES! HGSHAVER

The LLCC is shining example of a successful non-profit en every way - outreach, keeping its constituency informed, getting results and setting a standard for others to emulate. It has connected with its geographic neighboring civic associations (mine included) with regard to common and overlapping issues such as infrastructure, environment, green space and quality of life.

After completing and reviewing the demographic information contained in the Successful Communities Study the LLCC partnered with a local church to start an ESL Program for the Hispanic community. This program has become very popular and in turn has opened up several other doors of opportunity to engage and assist the neighbors living in the LaVista Road/Cheshire Bridge area. Through a grant given to the ESL Program, the LLCC now partners with a local public school, the Atlanta Police Department and other nonprofit agencies. Thank you LLCC!

LLCC has been instrumental in organizing my neighborhood along with the surrounding community to give the residents a unified voice. This organization has allowed the residents to provide input in policy making that has a direct effect on our community and quality of life. Projects I've taken part in range from the blueprints for successful communities to our regular litter cleanups. I look forward to seeing more of our plans implemented.

LLCC has been an integral part of protecting while helping in the redevelopment of our intown area. Over the past several years, we have been constantly targeted by developers for redevelopment. While defending our single family homes, LLCC has worked with the developers to seek redevelopment consistent with the "blueprint" plan developed for the area.

The LLCC has been a positive force in building a consensus for compatible growth and development and has worked well with governments that cross both county and city boundaries- this is no easy task. They have taken on a number of community improvement projects- from simple trash pickups along area roads, to helping build paths along creeks and wooded areas. They get area businesses and residents on the same page to work together on these projects. They organize dining experiences to both help local restaurants and generate funds. LLCC has been extremely good in communicating with the public and their members through the website (thanks Henry!) and the regular e-newsletters. I live outside their area of operations, but have admired what they have done since their founding several years ago. I have attended some of the classes they have organized on making civic associations better at doing what they need to do! Between their beautification and trails projects, being very inclusive with their diverse membership, and working with local politicians and government officials, the LLCC is an example to which other civic groups should aspire. Well done!
