PDK Watch Inc. is a community watchdog 501(c)4 organization that seeks to monitor and reduce damaging noise and pollution caused by Peachtree-DeKalb Airport (PDK) that impacts approximately 100,000 residents of northeast Atlanta. PDK Watch and its predecessor groups since the 1970s also support DeKalb County’s longstanding policy of maintaining PDK Airport as a CII general aviation facility that does not allow regularly scheduled passenger service or additional expansion beyond the Airport’s existing fenced perimeter.
To achieve its objectives, PDK Watch maintains close contact with the Airport Director and the DeKalb County Commissioners about PDK issues that may negatively impact the surrounding community. When necessary, PDK Watch also mobilizes its supporters, who can rapidly generate hundreds of email messages and calls to the County Commissioners about issues of public concern.
For further information, contact Larry Foster, Communication Director, PDK Watch Inc., at firstname.lastname@example.org.
