Downtown Vote

The residents of Downtown Atlanta play an active role in the future of our neighborhood. One of the ways we influence the progress of our neighborhood is through the approval of business and alcohol licenses in Downtown. To help shape a Downtown for all, we seek to support businesses that improve the Downtown atmosphere and add to the vibrancy and livability of our neighborhood.
