PDK Watch Inc. is a 501(c)4 and community watchdog organization that seeks to protect established residential neighborhoods surrounding PDK Airport from damaging airport noise, pollution, and expansion.
PDK Watch Inc. and Open DeKalb Inc. are two distinct organizations. They currently share a common concern regarding the environment and operations at PDK Airport, but they have different missions, approaches, tasks and boards.
PDK Watch Inc. is the organization that monitors, evaluates and takes political action regarding PDK Airport activities and developments believed to be detrimental to the surrounding neighborhoods. PDK Watch Inc. engages in political lobbying so it is not considered a charitable or educational entity under the Internal Revenue Service code.
Open DeKalb Inc., in sharp contrast, is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, donations to which are tax deductible. Open DeKalb Inc. does not engage in lobbying, but seeks to promote public awareness and improvement of community life by making DeKalb County government more open and thereby more responsive to the public.
