Brookhaven city officials plan a series of public meetings, including a “town hall” to gather public opinion, during the month of January.

Brookhaven City Council will hold a public hearing at 7 p.m. on Jan. 14 to consider adopting the proposed Brookhaven Zoning Ordinance and Brookhaven Sign Regulations Ordinance.

The meeting will be held at the “Little White House,” 2536 Caldwell Road. The second read of the ordinance will be considered at 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 15 at the Ashford Dunwoody YMCA, 3692 Ashford Dunwoody Road.

Brookhaven also will host an open house at 2 p.m. on Jan. 16 to introduce residents to the city’s Community Development Department.

People are invited to learn about the city’s building, permitting, inspection and business license processes. Staff from the Community Development and Finance departments will be on hand to answer any questions.

Brookhaven City Hall is located at 200 Ashford Center North in Dunwoody. There will be a tour of city hall following the open house.

At 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 24, the city will host a “town hall” meeting at Marist School, 3790 Ashford Dunwoody Road, NE.

The town hall meeting will be a more informal way for the community to interact with the mayor, city council and department heads for the new city of Brookhaven.

Officials will explain the functions of different city departments, present updates on the city’s ordinances, and talk about future plans. There will also be time for residents to ask questions.
