Coalition of Neighborhood Organizations
What is the Coalition Of Neighborhood Organizations (CONO)?
CONO meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at the Decatur Public Library at 5:30 p.m. CONO provides a common ground to network and share information and participates in collaborative problem solving efforts with various agencies throughout the city. CONO was established in 1991, and in 1997 was recognized by the Decatur City Council as the official representative of Decatur neighborhoods. Since that time CONO has consistently been the number one “grassroots” organization in Decatur, by serving as the umbrella organization to all neighborhoods in the city.
Our mission is to support the formation, development, and empowerment of grassroots neighborhood organizations within the city boundaries of Decatur. Their goals are to meet with representatives of various neighborhood organizations/associations together in a room with service providers and city representatives to tackle issues in our neighborhoods. All grassroots volunteers engage in hard work and dedication in making their neighborhoods the best they can be to improve the quality of life in Decatur.

Please note: Decatur's participation in National Night Out, traditionally held in August and postponed to fall due to COVID-19, has been completely cancelled and the committee will work toward an event in 2021.
