Evaluating Possible Zoning Protections for Northwoods
I’m excited about the development prospects that are coming to Doraville – but also concerned about what they could mean for my neighborhood and its character. I do not want Northwoods (or Doraville, for that matter) to lose the traits that make it special. In particular, I worry about re-development that could lead to many of our historic homes being torn down and replaced by McMansions that don’t really fit the neighborhood’s character.
Planning Commissioner Andy Yeoman would like to set up a committee of Northwoods residents to look at zoning protections for the neighborhood, but needs council approval to authorize the work of some city staff. This issue will come up at the April 8th work session, and I've written about it here.
