City Council oks MARTA request to withdraw TOD rezoning application

Brookhaven, GA, Feb. 28, 2017 – The Brookhaven City Council unanimously approved a request by MARTA to withdraw its rezoning application to build a transit-oriented mixed-use development at the Brookhaven station at Apple Valley Road and Dresden Drive.

“The city is appreciative of the tremendous amount of work that MARTA has put into this project,” Brookhaven Mayor John Ernst said. “However, the MARTA TOD needs to function as the residents of Brookhaven wish, and much more work is needed to make that happen. We look forward to partnering with MARTA on an innovative project that achieves a world-class city center.”

Earlier in the month MARTA announced that it had canceled its contract with the current TOD site developer. That action followed a request by Mayor Ernst in January to suspend all staff work on the developer’s request for project incentives.
