Atlanta is often called a city of transplants -- i.e a lot of residents not from the city or even born in Georgia -- and we always refer to this map when educating our clients to the official neighborhoods in the actual City of Atlanta. If you're thinking of buying, selling, moving, or getting involved in your neighborhood or NPU organizations (which we HIGHLY suggest if you care about this great city), just reference this easy Google Map we made just for you.

From the City of Atlanta on Neighborhood Planning Units:
The City of Atlanta is divided into twenty-five Neighborhood Planning Units or NPUs, which are citizen advisory councils that make recommendations to the Mayor and City Council on zoning, land use, and other planning issues. The NPU system was established in 1974 to provide an opportunity for citizens to participate actively in the Comprehensive Development Plan, which is the city's vision for the next five, ten, and fifteen years. It is also used as a way for citizens to receive information concerning all functions of city government. The system enables citizens to express ideas and comment on city plans and proposals while assisting the city in developing plans that best meet the needs of their communities.
