Normally, the announcement for the NPU-S General Meeting is pretty short and to the point, and we'll lead with "just the facts", but you'll want to read to the end of this announcement!
NPU-S General Meeting:
- Thursday, October 18, 7pm-9pm
- VICARS, 838 Cascade Ave SW
- Agenda at http://bit.ly/NPUSAgendaOct2018; supporting documents at http://bit.ly/NPUSDocsOct2018
- Free drawing at the end for two tickets to the Oct. 27 Hawks/Bulls game!
- V-18-268 - a reduction of required parking spaces for 850 Cascade Ave (Community Church of God)
- V-18-284 and V-18-285 - these two items are tied together, a reduction of required parking for adjacent lots at 1086 and 1100 Murphy.
- Z-18-105 - this is the Tucker Ave. rezoning request by the Atlanta Land Trust, a proposal to turn an empty parcel of land into affordable housing in the Oakland City neighborhood. This would normally be the biggest vote in the meeting, but then we have...
- Z-18-52 and Z-18-53. The long, long awaited Fort McPherson rezoning. There have been many meetings, and many presentations, and now we've come to the vote. This splits the parts of Ft. Mac that was not purchased by Tyler Perry Studios into five zones, each with a different character, wrapping around Lee Street and Campbellton. Assuming all goes to plan, it's difficult to overstate the potential impact of this redevelopment on our NPU and the entire Southwest quadrant. Z-18-52 is the main course; Z-18-53 has to do with signage within the Ft. Mac area.
- Z-18-100. Zoning Ordinance Update Part II. Part I, "Quick Fixes", was a 14-part omnibus update; presumably, part II are not-as-quick fixes, shrunk down to a mere dozen parts. It's a biggie, and the City has been going over it for months, holding numerous special sessions across Atlanta to explain it. We'll just list the provisions as given in the description:
- Accessory Dwellings (Section 1 below);
- Definitions (Section 2 below);
- Uses in Industrial Districts (Section 3 below);
- Loading Requirements (Section 4 below);
- MRC Residential Density (Section 5 below);
- New Multi-Unit Housing Zoning District and Regulations (Section 6 below);
- Parking (Section 7 below);
- Neighborhood Design Standards (Section 8 below);
- Telecommunications (Section 9 below);
- Transitional Height Planes (Section 10 below);
- and Quality of Life Districts (Section 11 below);
- to amend multiple sections of the Zoning Ordinance related to bicycle parking requirements so as to coordinate with certain cross references in Ordinance number 18-O-1023 (Z-17-93) and correct certain scrivener’s errors therein (Section 12)
