Statement of Purpose

ATN advocates for policies and initiatives that protect and enhance Tallahassee and its neighborhoods. Vibrant neighborhoods drive Tallahassee’s enviable quality of life. Using our combined knowledge, expertise, and energy we build consensus on critical issues and take constructive action. We believe that citizen participation in city development processes is vital to a successful future. We support sound urban development. We are acutely aware of sprawl’s adverse impacts on city resources and citizens. We support thoughtful incremental development paired with sensible policies that enhance, complement, and respect our neighborhoods. This perspective corresponds to the Vision Statement in the Tallahassee-Leon County Comprehensive Plan.
