The work of the Zoning Committee centers on maintaining the neighborhood’s character and protecting neighbors from zoning violations.  The Zoning Committee reviews proposed new developments, applications for variances from zoning and stream buffer requirements, rezoning efforts, and special use requests.  Recommendations are provided to Neighborhood Planning Unit – B (NPU-B) in the City of Atlanta and, when appropriate, to the Department of Planning and Zoning in the City of Brookhaven. The Zoning Committee also tracks legislation that has the potential to impact our neighborhood and helps co-ordinate community response. 

The Zoning Committee meets via Zoom on the third Monday of every month at 7:00 pm.  If you are interested in attending, please e-mail Meetings are cancelled if there are no applications.

Improving your Home/Remodeling/Removing Trees?

If you are thinking about making changes to your home or property, be sure to check with the City of Atlanta Department of Planning  or the City of Brookhaven Planning and Zoning  for what is required.  Your plan may need special review or permitting, even if the changes seem relatively minor. We are a two-city neighborhood and zoning codes and building requirements are different.  Tree removal procedures also vary.
