Brookhaven should appeal, never bend over to development. Far better to spend money on this than many of the newer, more fickle “priorities”.

Appeal the decision, set a precedent,and send a message: “We live here, you don’t.”

“We live here, you don’t.”

Laughable, Tom. Laughable. Seems to me an older generation once said that in Buckhead. Been to Buckhead lately?

BTW, we will always be facing issues of traffic and housing congestion, aesthetics, and historical tradition in our city. Every city deserves a past, a present, and a future–the Brookhaven Historical District right next door to the Hastings site brings all three into focus. The precedents that we set influence millions of dollars, thousands of peoples lives, and decade of change. Time to once again to do the right thing, not the expedient thing.

DeKalb County is required by the EPA Consent Decree to have a calibrated, and predictive, flow model to analyze new sewer flow in order to submit a certificate of occupancy. So the City options are: A) Appeal on the merits of a blown city decision B) Sue DeKalb County now for issuing a Certifiaxte of Occupancy to the Dresden Apartments, Peachtree Road condos and Ashton Woods Developemt on Ashford Dunwoody without a flow model.

Why issue permits and continue to rezone property thus creating a legal tangle the likes of which we have NEVER seen. A top level Public works official was recently rehired from East Georgia and he discovered forgotten letters of Sewer Capacity approvals for major projects… Read more »

Remember this is Drumpf’s EPA. They will allow anything.

Apparently more than 50% of the district loves the Donald and what he represents, so maybe they love this part too.

Ellen if you are not happy with the political outcome over the past nine months turn off that TV and radio and put on some cool jazz. If you don’t your unhappiness will eat you alive and alter your behavioral interaction with family and friends. It’s already taken hold and is showing.

Hmm, the planned development doesn’t really seem out of character for the area. There are buildings of similar size directly west. This seems more like obstruction for its own sake. Build up, or build out. Which shall it be?

Here’s an idea; Brookhaven purchase the site from the owner and turn into more greenspace. The old Hastings site is becoming an eye sore by the day, I just wish they’d figure it all out so 50% are happy.
