The “Scott Serpas Restaurant” case has bounced around between the Planning Commission, Zoning Board of Appeals and the City Council since March of 2013 where it was heard during the City’s first ever ZBA Meeting. At long last, the case is finally over.
Several community members expressed their support to Council members. There were no speakers in opposition.
Councilman John Park, who made the motion to approve the rezoning, warned residents that parking will continue to be an ever increasing problem in the area. “I would like to see the community come together and work with the City to solve those issues,” Park said.
Serpas, a Brookhaven resident, owns and operates the popular Serpas True Food in the Old Forth Ward of Atlanta. This new endeavor, Dixie Moon, has local residents looking forward to another quality restaurant option within walking distance of thier homes.
The City Council voted to approve the rezoning unanimously. District 3 City Councilman Bates Mattison recused himself the proceedings.
