Brookhaven’s 2017 Zoning Ordinance Rewrite kicks off first meeting

Peachtree Overlay Update project also announces June meeting

Post Date:05/30/2017 3:26 PM

Brookhaven, GA, May 30, 2017 – The first Brookhaven 2017 Zoning Ordinance Rewrite public meeting will be held on Thursday, June 22 at 6:30 p.m., at the Briarwood Recreation Center, 2235 Briarwood Way NE, in Brookhaven.

The Zoning Ordinance Rewrite addresses future zoning standards citywide, and is the next step in the process which began with the adoption of the Comprehensive Plan in 2014, and the Character Area Study, adopted in January 2017.

In a separate but related matter, the next Peachtree Overlay Update public meeting will be held on Thursday, June 29 at 6:30 p.m., at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church at 3110 Ashford Dunwoody Rd NE in Brookhaven.  In contrast to the citywide Zoning Ordinance Rewrite meetings, the Peachtree Overlay Update meeting will focus primarily on Brookhaven’s commercial corridor in the center of Brookhaven, and within the boundaries of the existing overlay district.

“Most of Brookhaven’s existing zoning regulations are based upon old DeKalb County codes inherited when the City was incorporated,” said City Manager Christian Sigman.  “With several major, citizen-driven planning initiatives now complete, a new zoning code will help implement the key goals and policies from these plans.”

“Public input ensures we promote and preserve all of the qualities that are uniquely Brookhaven in the years to come,” said Brookhaven Community Development Director Patrice Ruffin.  “These meetings are opportunities for residents and stakeholders to share their priorities and create zoning codes to support that vision.”
