Zoning Code to be Rewritten - Public Comment Requested
Posted: February 17th, 2009 @ 11:06pm
Last year, DeKalb County adopted a new comprehensive plan that guides development through 2025. The document is all big-picture, describing new, mixed-use town centers and neighborhood centers where residents can live, work and play.
But it takes a zoning code to implement it. The legal document will become the basis for negotiations between developers, neighborhoods and their elected officials.
DeKalb County is seeking public comment on a wholesale re-write of the zoning code to be completed by September. Three two-hour workshops will be held in December, starting at 6:30 p.m. They are on the following dates and at these locations:
December 4, at the Mason Mill Center, 1340-B McConnell Drive, Decatur
December 9, at the Lou Walker Senior Center, 2538 Panola Road, Lithonia
December 11, at the Chamblee Library, 4115 Clairmont Road, Chamblee
