Brookhaven, GA, June 21, 2016 – The Post Reports – Brookhaven Councilmembers unanimously adopted amendments to the character areas found in the Brookhaven 2034 Comprehensive Plan Tuesday evening, changes necessary to align the Comprehensive Plan Character Area Map with the City’s Official Zoning Map.
The changes affect three of the Comp. Plan’s character areas – the Peachtree Corridor Overlay (PCO), Ashford Park/Drew Valley and Osborne. According to Hatton, all of the changes have already been adopted and these changes simply update the maps to depict those changes.
In the Northern portion of the PCO District, some parcels have been moved in to the Ashford Park/Drew Valley character area because they are residential. In the Southern portion, some parcels have been moved out of the Osborne character area because they are commercial, and this places them in the PCO character area. See the presentation below for further explanation.
The City’s Comprehensive Plan was adopted in December of 2014 and was last amended in May of 2015. According to the City, the Comprehensive Plan 2034 documents the long-term vision for Brookhaven’s future. “The plan is built from the ground-up, with the community’s desires and goals for the City’s future as the basis for the implementation program that follows,” says the Comp. Plan preamble. “The long-term vision for Brookhaven is to be a model community that preserves what makes it great—including its people, neighborhoods, parks, tree canopy, and accessibility—while acknowledging its role as a premier community within the Atlanta Region.”
The City also approved transmittal of the amended Comprehensive Plan to the Atlanta Regional Commission for their review.
