How Can I Help?

There are many ways that you can make a difference and impact your community:

 

Make a Donation

Donate to the BPCA Zoning Defense Fund.  Our ability to ensure that Brookhaven develops along the lines of Village Place on Dresden Road, and not Buford Hwy, relies on the commitment of the community.  We need your financial help to defend the Brookhaven Peachtree Overlay District from uncooperative developers and court challenges.

The fund is overseen by the Zoning Defense Committee composed of volunteers from Historic Brookhaven, Brookhaven Heights, Brookhaven Fields, and Ashford Park. To donate now using PayPal, please return to the Home Page and click the PayPal button on the right side of the header; or if you prefer to write a check, make it out to “Brookhaven Peachtree Community Alliance” and send it to:

Take Action

Fill out the Contact BPCA form and write “Action Group” in the comment section.  Action Group members will be alerted first when we need neighbors to write emails to elected officials or planning officials.  We will also alert you when we need neighbors to attend a zoning or planning hearing.

There are numerous properties up for development and there are corporations that want to do business here, who have little regard for our community’s vision.

The communities which are most successful in protecting their vision are those where many residents consistently take action and make their voices heard.

 

 Donate Your Talent

Join the BPCA and be part of the legacy in helping to create “A Better Brookhaven”.

We need people who care passionately about Brookhaven.  Achieving our vision of a vibrant, pedestrian friendly community with tree lined streets, wide sidewalks, a beautiful park, and a town center where people can meet and mingle – is entirely dependent on your support and interest.

We are all volunteers and ALWAYS need help!

 

Areas where you can contribute include:

  • Spokesperson: Can you generate buzz?  Be a spokesperson for the BPCA and actively communicate our mission to your neighborhood and the greater Brookhaven community.
  • Legal Counsel: Whether you are an attorney or simply well versed in legal matters, your support could be of great benefit in offsetting expensive attorney fees.
  • Fund Raising: To build our Defense Fund, we need people to support and help drive fund raising activities.
  • Administrative Support: If you’re a mover and shaker that’s good at getting stuff done, come help us. We need support with tasks such as communicating with Home Owner Associations in Brookhaven, managing the email distribution list or even simple tasks such as sending receipts for donations and getting flyers printed.
  • Volunteer Coordinator: Can you inspire people and help create a positive experience for volunteers?  We need a point person for our volunteers who can help match people with tasks that play to their interests and their strengths.
  • Urban Design/Landscape Architecture/Artists/Planners:  If you have experience in any of these areas and a passion for design, you would be a valuable asset to the team. We can use assistance with reviewing building and site plans for LCI compliance, ideas for design solutions, and assistance in working with developers towards creating building and streetscape designs that people love and that will enrich our community.
  • Writing/Editing:  If you have a knack for inspiring people through your words, please jump in!  You can assist with website content and updates, editorials, fund-raising flyers, email templates, editing and a variety of other writing tasks.
  • Team Coordinator: We need someone with strong project management skills to oversee all ongoing projects, keep everyone focused and fired up, and ensure tasks get assigned and driven toward completion with a coordinated effort.
  • Website Support:  If you know WordPress or have experience designing websites and can assist in enhancing our on-line presence, HELP!

If you would like to contribute in other ways, please let us know.  Our goal is to build a team of dedicated volunteers that can share the load, while leveraging their talents and making a difference.  Help Us Create a Better Brookhaven–Volunteer!   Experience personal and professional fulfillment.  Watch talent in action.
