The Vista Grove Initiative
The Vista Grove region in North Dekalb, one of the last unincorporated areas in this part of the county, is an incredible community. We have a rich shared history, with a diverse range of interests. We have young families, raising children and building new lives, and citizens whose roots and love for the area go back generations. We have creative and entreprenerial businesses. We enjoy a beautiful and biodiverse greenspace running through our many linked neighborhoods. We also have great community schools, including Lakeside as a flagship high school, and a strong sense of shared identity.
The Vista Grove Initiative, a group of civic-minded Vista Grove citizens, was formed to foster positive dialogue in our community about the best means for us to:
--Strengthen relationships and the natural community and identity we share in the Vista Grove area through our common history, geography, and aspirations.
--Create opportunities in Vista Grove for citizens to enhance quality of life for themselves and their families through civic participation, economic development, recreational opportunities, and educational achievement.
--Ensure self-determination, and a clear voice, for our citizens in the important discussions at a regional, state, and inter-governmental level that impact our community.
Incorporating our community is one possible means, but by no means the only or exclusive one. We are linked with and part of our county and state, and we have cities adjacent to us from whom we can learn, and with whom we will need to engage and work constructively. We hope you share this vision of working together to discuss and help define our shared future and that you will join the conversation by volunteering!
