an Atlanta firm, wants to rezone the church at the intersection of
North Decatur Road and Scott Boulevard so it can develop a 40,000-square
foot mixed use retail project that would also include 200 apartments
over five stories.
The District 2 Community Council will hear
the rezoning proposal at Toco Hill-Avis G. Williams Library on Tuesday,
Aug. 20 at 6:30 p.m. The council, a board of residents, submits
recommendations to the county government that can be considered by the
zoning board and the board of commissioners in their rulings. But
council votes are not binding.
Good Growth DeKalb,
a local group fighting the construction of a Walmart Supercenter in
North Decatur's Suburban Plaza, is also protesting the church rezoning
and has encouraged residents to attend the meeting.
