MISSION STATEMENT
 BUCKHEAD COUNCIL OF NEIGHBORHOODS

BCN's mission is to provide a more unified and stronger voice to address and protect the common interests and quality of life issues shared by all of the individual Buckhead neighborhoods, such as education, transportation, traffic, community development, and government services; and to enhance our neighborhoods' influence in the larger arena of local government politics and funding.

By providing an independent forum for homeowners and neighborhoods to share common concerns and propose solutions for community betterment, BCN hopes to create an effective vehicle for making headway on larger Buckhead-wide issues.  BCN will thus empower our neighborhoods to address matters in a more unified and influential manner that will get positive results.
