The purpose of Community Area Planning Units (CAPUs) is to provide an opportunity for the citizenry to formally provide input into its city government and into the comprehensive development plan of the city. CAPUs also provide a means by which information concerning the operation of city government can be provided to the citizens of the proposed City of DeKalb. CAPUs may make recommendations to the city council and the mayor on planning, zoning, code enforcement and other issues relevant to the quality of community life within the city of DeKalb.
There will be 6 CAPUs in the new city of DeKalb (see Map on the About page). Each CAPU shall determine its own structure. CAPU board members shall be elected by residents, homeowners, and property owners within the designated boundaries of that CAPU.
See the city of DeKalb’s charter for further explanation of CAPU’s structure, elections and powers.
Same reason we're starting ours!
Neighborhoods maintain their own identities within each CAPU.
These pictures represent what residents have told us they want. From top left: A tiny home made from 3D printing; a coffee shop where friends can gather; Street Sweeper to clean our streets; outdoor activities like table tennis for youth, Aerial Mass Transit; Computer Center for youth in each CAPU.
