17 townhomes
Click to enlarge. 17 townhomes are proposed to be constructed on Ashford-Dunwoody Road. Planning Commissioners denied the rezoning request at its April 6 meeting.

Brookhaven City Councilmember Linley Jones will host a public meeting Tuesday, April 19, at 7 p.m. at City Hall to hear citizen input on a rezoning application to construct 17 townhomes on Ashford-Dunwoody Road just north of Blackburn Park.

City staff recommended approval of the rezoning application with numerous conditions to the Planning Commission on April 6. But after hearing several neighbors speak out against the proposed development, commissioners voted to deny the rezoning request.

The proposed townhome development would contain four separate buildings. Three of the buildings would have five units and the fourth building would have two units.

The townhomes would be three-story units with two-car garages and two additional driveway parking spaces.

From Jones:

Embry Development has applied for a rezoning of three properties located on Ashford-Dunwoody Road just north of Blackburn Park–3697, 3705, & 3713 Ashford Dunwoody Road.  The three properties currently each have a duplex on them and back up to Bubbling Creek. Embry Development proposes to change the zoning to build 17 townhomes, a change from R-DT and R-75 zoning to RA-8.

I invite all interested citizens to attend this meeting on Tuesday, April 19, at 7 p.m. at Brookhaven City Hall, 4362 Peachtree Road, to share your thoughts.  I have also asked Embry Development to attend.

This meeting is scheduled in advance of the official public hearing of this petition before Brookhaven City Council that is currently scheduled to occur one week later on Tuesday, April 26, at 7 p.m.
