Greater Decatur is an organization of people who would like to see Greater Decatur (an area circumscribed by a cirle of radius of roughly 1.5-2 miles centered on the Historic Courthouse in Decatur, GA), which is already great, moving toward very more greatness. We welcome anyone who shares this goal, even if they live outside the highlighted circle.
Greater Decatur is larger than the 4.2 square miles of incorporated City of Decatur and the 30030 area code, but smaller than all the Decatur, GA addresses as defined by the USPS.
Nestled inside the I-285 perimeter around Atlanta, north of I-20, and southeast of I-85; Decatur is a small town (established 1822) which has been surrounded by the burgeoning Metro Atlanta. Even though it is the county seat of DeKalb County, has about twenty thousand residents, and is less than six miles from downtown Atlanta; it still has the feel of a small town. Some say it's where Mayberry and Berkeley coexist. This organization wants Greater Decatur to grow and prosper, while maintaining this highly desirable characteristic.
