Community Discussion, Pt 2: Short Term Rental Policy

Last Saturday, a group of 15 NPU-S residents gathered via videoconference to discuss our thoughts on Atlanta's proposed legislation addressing Short Term Rentals (Airbnb, VRBO, etc).

The ordinance, Z-20-69, defines Short Term Rentals (STRs) as 

a rental of a residential dwelling unit or accessory building for periods of less than 31 consecutive days.

and proceeds to ban them from single-family residential zones (R1, R2, R2A, R2B, R3, R3A, R4, R4A, R4B, R5, PDH). 

After a period going over the legislation itself and discussing how other cities manage STRs, there was a lively discussion going over the pros and cons of STRs in our neighborhood. This ultimately led to a vote (10 aye, 3 nay, 2 abstain) declaring that NPU-S feels that regulated system of STR management was preferable to an outright ban.

This second meeting is to determine what sort of regulation we'd want to see to make STRs acceptable to the community. 

This meeting is primarily for residents of NPU-S, but it is open to the public. We invite you to come share your thoughts on this important topic.

A copy of the proposed ordinance is at https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ioWD6FckXNs3XxF7CJY5YNYlbaDtW0qr/view.

Delay of face-to-face instruction in Atlanta Public Schools

 From Aretta Baldon, Atlanta Board of Education, District 2:

Today, our superintendent, Dr. Lisa Herring, announced that Atlanta Public Schools will delay its return to face-to-face instruction due to an unfavorable trend in COVID-19 cases in our community and in consultation with public health officials and healthcare experts. That means the district will postpone all reopening plans for in-person learning until January 2021.

Dr. Herring shared this decision in her blog and her weekly address The Week (https://talkupaps.wordpress.com/), both of which provide more details about the decision and ongoing plans for Atlanta Public Schools.

In addition, Dr. Herring will proceed with our practice of monthly health data checkpoints and present the next update at the November 2 Board meeting. The superintendent and her team will also continue to explore ways to support our most vulnerable learners, particularly our low-incidence special needs population and our youngest students, including their potential return to some in-person services prior to January 2021.

The difficulties and uncertainties created by the COVID-19 pandemic require us as a school community to be prepared for different teaching and learning scenarios. I assure you that the APS mission to give EVERY child a quality education has not changed. APS and our schools need your support and engagement now more than ever.

As Dr. Herring herself says to the community in her blog and video, we all look forward to the day when we can welcome all of our students back into our buildings safely, embrace them, and teach them face to face.

Thanks for your ongoing support. Please message me with any questions or further concerns.

Ms. Baldon can be reached via email at Aretta.Baldon@atlanta.k12.ga.us.

SurveyATL.org: Participation beyond elections, from the Center for Civic Innovation

From the Center for Civic Innovation:

When people are engaged, cities make better decisions. Take this survey on community engagement in Atlanta.

SurveyATL.org

Today, we’re launching a citywide survey to better understand how Atlanta residents engage in their community now and how they want to engage in the future. We will use this information to guide short- and long-term recommendations on how we can all strengthen civic participation in our city.

Please take the survey and share it with your neighbors and networks at SurveyATL.org

For the survey to be truly reflective of Atlanta, we need your help in getting it in front of as many different people as possible. Take the survey here: SurveyATL.org

We believe that community engagement is at the center of solving inequality in Atlanta. Much of our inequality was intentionally designed so it will require intentional design to correct it. Community engagement isn't just a checkbox — it’s an ongoing, trust-building process that brings the needs and voices of residents into decision-making processes.

With so much attention on the national election, it's important to remember that civic participation is more than voting. Voting is critical, but our voices are equally important in neighborhood, school board, city council, and PTA meetings. Regular participation makes the outcomes better and more reflective of what people actually need.

This effort is a part of our ongoing work to strengthen neighborhood power in Atlanta through our NPU Initiative. You can learn more about that work and also find which Neighborhood Planning Unit you live in at civicatlanta.org/npu-initiative.

Community Discussion: Airbnbs and the City. Sat 10/17 1pm

The City Council is currently considering legislation effectively banning all Airbnbs from our neighborhoods. The ordinance, Z-20-69, defines Short Term Rentals (STRs) as 

a rental of a residential dwelling unit or accessory building for periods of less than 31 consecutive days.

and proceeds to ban them from single-family residential zones (R1, R2, R2A, R2B, R3, R3A, R4, R4A, R4B, R5, PDH). 

Currently, there is no definition in city code that covers STRs, and so technically an Airbnb in a residential area is an improperly zoned, unlicensed hotel. This legislation thus takes notice of Airbnbs and applies a remedy. But is it overkill?

NPU-S has had a love-hate relationship with Airbnbs. While several have been nuisances to our community, there are people who feel that they're a way for homeowners to make extra income. 

Although this legislation is being brought up for review and comment at Thursday's NPU-S meeting, there's likely not going to be enough time at that meeting to thoroughly explore our opinions on the topic. So we're holding a separate meeting on Saturday the 17th at 1pm via Google Meet to gather facts and feelings about how we'd like to regulate STRs.

This meeting is primarily for residents of NPU-S, but it is open to the public. We invite you to come share your thoughts on this important topic.

A copy of the proposed ordinance is at https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ioWD6FckXNs3XxF7CJY5YNYlbaDtW0qr/view.

We have one vote this month,  a application for the Zoning Review Board:

Z-20-67 Applicant seeks to rezone the 1.8 acre property from the RG-3-C/BL (General [multi-family] residential, maximum floor area ratio of .696 conditional/BeltLine Overlay) zoning designation to the RG-3-C/BL (General [multi-family] residential, maximum floor area ratio of .696 conditional/BeltLine Overlay) zoning designation for the construction of an affordable townhome development. SURVEY, SITE PLAN

This is the Tucker Avenue affordable townhome development, which was originally approved in 2018. They've had to adjust their construction plans and techniques and, as a a result, must submit the new plans to the ZRB.

There are also two items for review and comment - V-20-116 (Appeal), an appeal of a Special Use permit, and Z-20-69, an ordinance that we'll vote on in November concerning Short-Term Rentals - in other words, AirBnBs and their like.  Z-20-69 is likely to be highly contentious, so while we'll cover it in our meeting on Thursday, we're also planning on holding a special called session of the NPU solely to discuss the topic and to come up with a policy position for the NPU.

We also will have a presentation from the Office of Zoning and Development about the "Brownfield Revolving Loan Subgrant to Trees Atlanta" (825 Warner Avenue).

As always, there will be representatives from the police, code enforcement, public works, and other City departments call in to give reports, and discuss NPU and community programs for our constituents. Come on out!

We have one vote this month, an updated rezoning proposal:
