NPU-B seeks candidates for Dec. 4 business posts election

Neighborhood Planning Unit-B (NPU-B), which represents neighborhoods and businesses in almost all of Buckhead east of Peachtree Road, will hold its elections for business representatives on Thursday, Dec. 4, from 6-8 p.m., in the lobby of the Cathedral of St. Philip,
2744 Peachtree Rd NW in Buckhead.

The By-Laws of NPU-B establish that there shall be 12 business representatives elected to be on the Board. Those interested in seeking a business representative position on the NPU-B board should contact Mark Tiller by email at or by phone at 404-271-0243.

Here are the requirements to qualify as a business representative. “A business representative shall be an employee, owner, or partner in the Business Constituent he or she represents and shall have his/her primary workplace within NPU-B and reside within the City of Atlanta. Each candidate shall provide written documentation that he/she is the only candidate from that Business Constituent.”

“Business Constituents” shall (l) conduct business or (2) own non-residential real property within NPU-B. The term “non-residential real property” shall mean real property lying wholly or partly in NPU-B that is not designated on the city of Atlanta Official Zoning Map with an “R’ or PDH zoning classification. However real property with an RLC classification that does not contain a residential structure shall be considered non-residential.

The term “to conduct business” means a business organization or entity, including a sole proprietorship, satisfying all of the following criteria with respect to the physical location of the business operations:

(l) The business operation is registered with the city of Atlanta Department of Finance or Secretary of State Corporations Division;
(2) The physical location of the registered business is wholly or partially in NPU-B;
(3) The registration of the business at a location wholly or partially in NPU-B occurred more than 12 months prior to the date of election; and
(4) The business has been in continuous operation at the registered physical location in NPU-B for the 12 months prior to the date of the election. However, a registered business which moved from a location wholly or partially in NPU-B and was in continuous operation at both locations for the 12 months prior to the date of election shall be considered to meet these criteria.

The term “continuous operation” means a business that operated under the same city of Atlanta business license or Secretary of State Registration and that was regularly open to the public or accessible to the public in a manner usual for a business of its type.
