Brookhaven, GA, June 16, 2016 – The Post Reports – The City of Brookhaven announced dates for four meetings to start the process of conducting the Comprehensive Plan Character Area Study initiative, Thursday. The City says the same information will be presented at all four meetings and invites interested parties to attend the meeting that is most convenient for them.
“It’s a more robust in-depth look to individual character areas,” Community Development Director Ben Song explains. “If you look at the text of the character area [in the Comp. Plan] itself, there isn’t much in regards to the character specifically and what the residents would like to see within their area. So we are trying to establish that identity.”
The first meetings will be held on July 14th at two locations. The morning meeting will be from 10 a.m. to noon at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church at 3110 Ashford-Dunwoody Road. The evening meeting will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Brookhaven City Hall located at 4362 Peachtree Road.
The second set of meetings will be held on July 19th at two locations. The morning meeting will be held from 10 a.m. to noon at Briarwood Park Recreation Center located at 2235 Briarwood Way. The evening meeting will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Brookhaven City Hall.
Brookhaven Councilmembers awarded an $83,250 during their June 7 Council Meeting to Sycamore Consulting to conduct the study. The project is expected to last 6 months.
