The Candler Park Neighborhood Organization (CPNO) came into existence in 1971. Before that, Candler Park was part of a neighborhood alliance called BOND (Bass Organization Neighborhood Development) that included Lake Claire, Inman Park and several other adjacent neighbhoroods.
Candler Park Neighborhood Organization (CPNO) meetings are held the third Monday of every month at 7 pm (social period starts at 6:30 pm) at the First Existentialist Congregation ("Old Stone Church"), 470 Candler Park Drive, across from the Candler Park golf course. Meeting notes are available in the Messenger - see archive here.
All Candler Park residents are welcome, and we love to see new faces! You don't need to be a member to attend the meetings, but you need to be a member in order to vote.
CPNO also welcomes contributions that are not attached to a membership application. Please contribute here!
Only registered members are eligible to vote at monthly meetings, and you must be a member by the first of that month.
Committee meetings are held at Epworth United Methodist Church, 1561 McLendon Avenue, 2nd floor.
The CPNO Board also meets monthly (second Monday of every month at 7 pm at Epworth Church - 1561 McLendon Avenue) and board meeting notes are posted here.
The 2011 CPNO Board is listed in the right rail of this page. Please contact board members with any questions or concerns.
Requesting Funds from CPNO
The neighborhood organization receives a number of requests each year for funding. We want as many of our members & neighbors as possible to have an opportunity to review requests, and help make sure we fund projects that align closely with our mission statement: to promote the common good and general welfare in Candler Park. To that end, we have created a set of guidelines for individuals and organizations to follow when requesting $500 or more. These guidelines help widely socialize your request, and give everyone the opportunity to ask questions early and avoid suprises.
