Brookhaven, GA, June 15, 2017 – The Post Reports – The City of Brookhaven will host a Public Information and Input ‘Pop-Up’ meeting on how to shape the update of the Brookhaven-Peachtree Overlay District. The meeting will take place on Saturday, June 17, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Brookhaven Plaza located at 3974 Peachtree Road NE. The City says there will display boards and project staff on hand to talk about the project and take in public comments.
The first public meeting on Brookhaven-Peachtree Overlay Update was held on Thursday, May 18 at 6:30 p.m., at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church at 3110 Ashford Dunwoody Rd NE. The presentation given during that meeting is embedded below.
Brookhaven Councilmembers passed a resolution adopting the 2016 Character Area Study in January, as a supplement to the Comprehensive Plan 2034. The City Council approved the first group of appointees the Overlay Update “sounding board” during their April 12th meeting. Those appointed are:
- Michael Arnett
- Karen Dernavich
- Jen Heath
- Courtney Lankford
- Isabel Moultrie
- Sai Reddy
- Jennifer Harper Reynolds
- Griff Sims
- Denise Starling
“The Brookhaven Peachtree Overlay Update is the result of input received from the Character Area Study on Brookhaven residential areas,” the City says. “Throughout the public process of the study, participants frequently provided input about the existing zoning regulations in the Brookhaven Peachtree Corridor Overlay and the need to better define the community’s vision for this area and provide regulations that would support it.”
The six-month long Character Area Study was performed by Sycamore Consulting at a cost of $83,000. Brookhaven Councilmembers approved a $135,000 contract in February with TSW, a planning and architectural firm, to provide consulting services to develop a new Brookhaven-Peachtree Overlay code as found in the City’s Zoning Ordinance. This new code will eventually replace the existing Overlay code. That effort is also expected to take six months to complete.
