Updates from the Buckhead Council of Neighborhoods
Posted on Feb 24th, 2021

Regarding the City of Atlanta's proposed changes to Single Family Zoning:
Last Friday (2/19/21), several members of the BCN SFR Task Force met with Commissioner Tim Keane and Director of Housing Josh Humphries on a Zoom meeting that was set up by Denise Starling of Livable Buckhead. The Commissioner and Director informed the Task Force that they are planning to set up meetings with other areas of the City and following those meetings, will be in contact with our group.
 
Buckhead NPU’s are reaching out to communities all across the City beginning this week. Accordingly, we are asking that the SFR Resolution not be distributed to our elected officials yet nor publicly disseminated. Your tremendous support has enabled us to get the attention of our city officials. We will keep you apprised of all developments as soon as they occur and will be ready to act quickly (This BCN resolution is in response to the City of Atlanta's proposed changes to "single-family residential zoning").
 
PBA Zoning is in full support of the BCN resolution in response to the City's proposed changes to Single Family Zoning and is on record with BCN as a vote "in favor".
Want to know what the proposed changes are?  Take a look at this link, from the Dept. of City Planning, titled "Atlanta City Design Housing": https://storymaps.arcgis.com/stories/e91c43ad299a4634add2bed4cf2eca9d
 
 
MARCH MEETING:  Presentation on the City Jail
Mary has attended all of the City Council Work Sessions on the City Jail. Last Thursday Sheriff Labat gave an excellent presentation on the merits of Fulton County utilizing the jail. We have invited Sheriff Labat to give that same presentation at our March meeting on Thursday, March 11th at 6:45pm via Zoom (link will be distributed closer to the meeting). We hope you will be able to attend.  It’s such an important issue and one that will affect us all. 
 
Thank you for your support of BCN!
