Introducing Neighborhood News


NBCA's new communication program uses several communication formats to help keep you informed.  The emphasis is on different media for different tastes, up-to-the-minute timeliness, and interactive links for additional information.  The different types of media include email Announcements, the NBCA website, social media, and NBCA Magazine.  

And, ta-da!, you are now reading the inaugural edition of Neighborhood News, our new twice-a-month e-newsletter.  Neighborhood News will present brief articles focusing on people, places and activities in North Buckhead and beyond.  We will also keep you updated on the status of on-going projects.

Enjoy this first Neighborhood News edition!!


New NBCA Logo

2020 Logo

We are evolving NBCA’s communications, logo and graphic design to reflect the essence of North Buckhead - a community with sophisticated city excitement at its doorstep but grounded in exceptional natural beauty.  All of these factors are reflected in our new design:  

  • Stronger more mature buck 
  • Multi-color logo that captures both urban and nature images 
  • A more geometric form creating a bold, modern and confident sensibility
  • Energetic color palette, which you can view by linking to the new NBCA Magazine

Neighborhood Survey Results

As a Civic Association, we want to know North Buckhead residents' concerns and priorities for the neighborhood.  We conducted a survey this fall and residents weren’t shy about telling us what was on their minds.   Safety/Crime is North Buckhead's number one priority. After that, it was a close second between Neighborhood Aesthetics and Traffic.  Link to the new NBCA Magazine to learn about all the NBCA initiatives on the docket to address what is most important to you. 


 What Do I Do with My Fall Leaves!?!

 The Office of Waste Services has announced that they have resumed lawn waste pick-up and ask that we set out our yard waste on our regular trash day.  However, prepare to be patient since Waste Services is still understaffed and the pickup may not be every week for now.  

An even better alternative to bagging all your fall leaves for pick up is to use the beneficial nutrients provided by your leaves as mulch in your garden beds. As organic mulch decomposes, it releases valuable nutrients for your plants. Leaves can be used as a mulch in vegetable gardens, flower beds, and around shrubs and trees. In annual and perennial flower beds, a 2 to 3-inch mulch of shredded leaves is ideal.

Shredded leaves make a much better mulch than un-shredded leaves.  Shredded leaves don't blow around nearly as much as whole leaves and they decompose faster.  To shred your leaves, just buy a leaf shredder from your hardware or home improvement store or blow your leaves onto a grass area and run over them with your lawn mower.  Shredded leaves can then be carried or blown onto your planting beds or other natural areas.
