Sign Petition. Splost Map. 5K Race. New Board Members

No slaughterhouses in our neighborhoods!    

This is a reminder to please sign the petition against allowing a slaughterhouse to operate in a DeKalb County neighborhood. Click here and sign the petition:   

We will share it with commissioners Monday, prior to their vote on the matter Tuesday night.

Please join us if you can and Wear RED.  March 26, 6:30 p.m., 1300 Commerce Drive, Decatur. The Board responds to public pressure. Numbers count! 

Background:  Bradford Homes & Grounds has been running a slaughterhouse at 1676 Rice Road, Lithonia, Ga., for at least five years without a proper DeKalb County business license. Since January 2016, he has slaughtered at least 2,174 animals. Now that Code Enforcement made the business license department aware of the problem, the owner is seeking a rezoning. In addition to signing the petition calling for the commissioners to DENY the rezoning, we encourage you to call or to write all county commissioners and urge them to DENY the request.
