Perkerson Civic Association

Our Information

About Us

Our neighborhood, once part of the Gilbert family holdings and founded by early settlers of Fulton County, is now making a dramatic comeback because of the collaborative revitalization efforts of community residents, concerned citizens, and civic, corporate and governmental leadership.  Perkerson Civic Association is proud to lead the way in rebuilding, restoring, and revitalizing this vitally historic neighborhood.  Our commitment encompasses 3 ideals:

  1. Historic preservation—retraining the historic and cultural character of the existing community;
  2. Non-displacement—maintaining neighborhood diversity by intervening and improving life opportunities for residents; and
  3. Sustainability—linking mixed-income, mixed-use development to sustainable economic growth, thereby creating an environment where families can be self-sufficient.



The amount is $12.00 for the Annual Membership Dues for the PCA. This is voluntary in order to help us cover the cost of paper and printing and other expenses that arise to help people attend meetings to represent the group. This fee breaks down to $1.00 per month.


Perkerson Neighborhood - Housing Information

***Condominium Loft Homes For Rent***

The most modern homes in the community include the 3 Bedrooms/2 Bathrooms Loft Style Luxury Apartment Style Homes that were built around 2006-2007. These were originally built as condominiums however the great recession happened and this led to a change of plans due to the tightening of the credit market for home purchases.
