Members of the Community
If you want to know more about Kirkwood, the best place to start is with the Kirkwood Neighbors' Organization (KNO). KNO is a racially and economically diverse civic organization devoted to the revitalization of Atlanta's historic Kirkwood community. KNO meets on the 10th of each month at 7:00 p.m. at the Turner Monumental A.M.E. Church at 66 Howard Street NE. Everyone is welcome!
KNO members work together to make Kirkwood a better place to live for all of us. Their programs include an ongoing tree-planting program, neighborhood cleanups, a neighborhood newsletter and other community projects. In 1999 they celebrated the 100th anniversary of the founding of Kirkwood by sponsoring the Kirkwood Centennial Festival and Tour of Homes. And perhaps most importantly, they serve as the voice of the community to the City of Atlanta on issues such as zoning, land use, economic development and housing code enforcement.
