Brookhaven Peachtree Overlay Update project gets down to business

Brookhaven, GA, Apr. 25, 2017 – The first Brookhaven Peachtree Overlay Update public meeting will be held on Thursday, May 18 at 6:30 p.m., at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church at 3110 Ashford Dunwoody Rd NE in Brookhaven.

At the January 24, 2017 meeting, the City Council passed a resolution adopting the 2016 Character Area Study as a supplement to the Comprehensive Plan 2034. 

The Brookhaven Peachtree Overlay Update is the result of input received from the Character Area Study on Brookhaven residential areas.  Throughout the public process of the study, participants frequently provided input about the existing zoning regulations in the Brookhaven Peachtree Corridor Overlay and the need to better define the community’s vision for this area and provide regulations that would support it.  

“This meeting is an opportunity for residents and stakeholders to get involved and shape the vision for the area and to create a zoning code to support that vision, both that are ‘uniquely Brookhaven’ and a reflection of the community,” said Brookhaven Community Development Director Patrice Ruffin.  “I hope people will come and let us know what they think.”

The Brookhaven Peachtree Overlay Update is a six-month process that will integrate extensive public and stakeholder involvement with a robust technical analysis.  Beginning with input already received, additional information will be collected through stakeholder interviews and a sounding board.  The public can also get involved through interactive workshops, pop-up events, and online through the project website and social media.
