Brookhaven Community Development Director Susan Canon said she has received many comments from the public on the Brookhaven-Peachtree Overlay District as she reviews the zoning document.
She said she recommends making several small changes to the district, which controls development along the Peachtree Road corridor near the Brookhaven MARTA station.
“When you look at the Brookhaven-Peachtree Overlay, if you take sentences out of context, it can lead you down the wrong path,” Canon said.
City Manager Marie Garrett said this technical review, which is taking place over a 90-day period, is only for the clarity of the document. She said more public discussion on the overlay district will happen during future planning meetings. “Taking a more in-depth view will be part of the comprehensive plan,” Garrett said.
