Community Engagement

Community Engagement is at the core of Historic Atlanta’s mission as this process gives the organization an opportunity to better understand the real connections between people and places. Understanding these relationships helps us advance the goals of the public through our mission, including Public Input and Education.

Community Engagement as a Process:

Historic Atlanta regularly engages with the public in the form of community events, community presentation/ updates, and public surveys to help direct the activities of the organization and its preservation programs.

“Ad-Hoc” Community Engagement:

Ad-Hoc” Community Engagement Programs are goal-oriented opportunities for the organization to develop relationships with the public to provide educational services. Examples of these programs include community workshops, Community Clean-Up Days, developing an insider “Guide to Atlanta,” community-oriented events/ summits, and educational partnerships with local School Systems.

                        “Ad-Hoc” Community Engagement Proposal Requirements:

  1. Historic Atlanta’s Board of Directors may consider adopting ad-hoc community engagement programs at any regular meeting of the Board.
  2. Proposed Programs should include a detailed proposal including Program Name, Description, Community Need, Budget, Proposed Timeline/ Schedule, and Project Community Engagement Plan for the duration of the project.
  3. The proposal must be distributed to all members of the board no later than 15 days prior to consideration of the full board.
  4. Programs can be approved, held, or denied at the discretion of the Board of Directors. Approved programs may be enacted or placed on hold at the discretion of the Executive Director.
