Brookhaven Mayor John Ernst announced his next town hall meeting will be Feb. 22 at Briarwood Community Center.

The town hall will deal specifically with zoning issues, he said in a statement. His first town hall was Jan. 28 where citizens expressed concerns about traffic among other issues.

The mayor’s statement announcing the town hall:

The next town hall meeting is scheduled for Monday, Feb. 22 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Briarwood Community Center, 2235 Briarwood Way. This meeting will focus on zoning/development issues.

Thank you to all those who have either attended the various zoning/planning community meetings, the first town hall, or those who have contacted city staff or me directly as well as those who have commented online in regards to proposed development projects. I read and listen to it all. I share your concerns.

At this Feb. 22 town hall, it is my intention to announce changes to our planning process, provide more information and create a productive forum for residents’ input and concerns. A representative from UGA’s Carl Vinson Institute will educate us on the zoning process, and lead our conversation. We are busy working on the agenda now. Stay tuned for more details and an opportunity to provide written comments if you are unable to attend.

Again, thank you for your time and efforts in these important matters that affect us all.
