The Brookhaven City Council will be presented with a bid for the character zoning project put into motion in February perhaps in late May or early June.
Community Development Director Ben Song said at the April 26 council meeting that RFPs for the project have been out since March and the final due date was April 29. He said staff would review the applicants and then select the best choice and bring to council for final approval in the coming weeks.
Brookhaven city officials decided in February they should gather residents for new discussions of the 13 “character areas” outlined in the city’s plan, which was adopted in 2014. City officials want more detailed information after residents at recent public gatherings said they felt they had been left out of the original process of drawing up the plan.
A planned rewrite of the city’s zoning code would be delayed until after the reworking of the comprehensive plan.
