Brookhaven City Council will now wait until September to vote on rezoning a property on N. Druid Hills Road for a proposed townhome development.
The townhomes are planned at 1475 N. Druid Hills Road, the current site of the North Atlanta Gospel Chapel.
The Planning Commission and City Council both deferred the application to allow the developer more time to come to a consensus with neighbors, who aren’t happy about the proposed townhomes.
Several nearby residents shared their concerns about the project at the City Council’s July 23 meeting.
Mary Nouotny worries that traffic problems will get worse with the addition of more homes in that area. She encouraged City Council members to go by the site so they can experience the traffic themselves.
“Try to turn left from that parking lot. You can’t do it,” Nouotny said.
Danny Ray, who lives directly across from the current church, said the area is already dangerous for drivers.
“I have seen so many accidents from people trying to pull out of there on Sunday it’s not funny,” Ray said. “It’s gotten to where I can’t even get out of my driveway as it is.”
