“We will continue to work with the developer” Patrice Ruffin
That says it all! Privatizing public streets for the convenience of a developer.

Massive improvement on what was there before. Take your time, get it right.

The apartments there before seemed like decent affordable housing, better most of the garden style apartments from the 70’s and 80’s. Bryton also had some nice Old Growth hardwoods that won’t be replaceable since there is very little greenspace left due to the greater lot coverage of this development over what was there before.

You dont know what you are talking about, Eric. This community is a great addition to Brookhaven. Read up before you comment.

Resident, I knew someone who lived in Bryton and thus had some familiarity with it. Please explain what I am missing.

I’m glad you think so.
Personally, I would like to see the developer fined heavily for every day they impede public infrastructure.

Indeed, that road is not owned by the developer. It is owned by us, the taxpayers of Brookhaven!

The road has been closed going on a year and 1/2 now. They could easily reopen it, then shut it down for the few days it will take for resurfacing. No other road in Brookhaven is closed because paving is “planned”. Can you imagine Peachtree being closed because it will be resurfaced sometime in the next month? As for public safety, it’s not very safe for people to have to cut through the Advance Auto shopping center to get to Clairmont. And to have a thoroughfare closed during the bridge shutdown is mind-boggling.

Something I have wondered about for this development, will the developers be shouldering the cost for the obviously necessary extra soundproofing or will this be left up to the taxpayers to remediate later?
