Zoning Code Public Information Meetings
The Atlanta City Councilâ€™s Zoning Committee in conjunction with the Cityâ€™s Department of Planning and Community Development will host two public information meetings to share the initial findings of a consultant team and receive public input about the Cityâ€™s current Zoning regulations as Atlanta embarks on rewriting its Zoning Code.
The Zoning Code divides the city into districts in order to regulate the physical development of the land within the city and limit the uses to which a property may be put. The regulations include the height, overall size, and placement of buildings on a lot, the density at which buildings may be constructed, signage and the number of parking spaces that must accompany each new building, among other regulations.
First public information meeting:
Monday, January 11, 2016
7:00 p.m to 8:30 p.m.
Atlanta Metropolitan State College
Easley Conference Center Pavillion***
1630 Metropolitan Parkway SW
Atlanta, GA 30310
Second public information meeting:
Tuesday, January 12, 2016
7:00 p.m to 8:30 p.m.
Passion City Church
515 Garson Dr NE
Atlanta, GA 30324
The Ordinance Rewrite Assessment is a project conducted by the Department of Planning and Community Development (DPCD). This work is being led by the Consultant Team of TSW, Canvas Planning Group and The Zoeckler Firm.
"After months of conducting interviews with constituent groups and individuals, the Consultant Team wants to hear from the public about specific concerns as well as broad views regarding the City's Zoning Code. I hope that many citizens will take advantage of this unique opportunity to give input in shaping our City's future," said City Councilmember Mary Norwood, Chair of the Zoning Committee. "It is important to note that these meetings are truly intended to gather information and critical 'real life experiences' from individuals who have been involved with or are interested in Atlanta's development and evolution."
