The Brookhaven Planning Commission voted Dec. 7 to recommend approval of four rezoning applications needed as part of an annexation request from residents living in Woodcliff Drive area near Executive Park and the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta office complex.

The City Council is slated to take up the rezoning recommendations and the annexation request at its Dec. 13 meeting. Residents living in unincorporated DeKalb County in Executive Park Apartments on Briarcliff Road, the Executive Park Condominiums on Executive Park Lane, the Executive Parkview Townhomes on Woodcliff Way and two homes at 1705 and 1721 Woodcliff Drive NE have petitioned the city to annex them into the city limits. The two homes, however, were recently rezoned by DeKalb County to make way for nine townhomes.

The annexation area is approximately 19 acres and includes some 200 people.

The rezoning request must first be approved before annexation is considered so the land officially is zoned according to city of Brookhaven codes.

The five properties are adjacent to the southeastern most boundary of the city of Brookhaven.
