      • Howell Mill Rezoning
        • Passed ZRB on 9/10.  It will go before the Zoning Committee on 9/16, before City Council on 9/21, and then to the Mayor (max of 9 days on his desk before it becomes law if not signed sooner).
      • QuikTrip Update
        • QuikTrip filed a new SAP, BL-15-04, after several months of discussion with neighbors and Atlanta BeltLine, Inc.
        • UHNA issued a letter of support of the new SAP over the previous SAP after a membership vote on March 9 and entered into a private agreement with QT holding them to the design we agreed upon.
        • Planning Staff has reviewed BL-15-04 and asked QT to make three significant changes: remove a curb cut on Chattahoochee, remove two fueling pumps, and add “windows” to the “rear façade” (which is what we would consider to be the front, the façade along Howell Mill).  The Planning Committee has not reviewed the new plans.
        • Jim Martin of Berkeley Park and NPU-D Chair filed an appeal of the BZA decision with the Fulton County Superior Court on July 6th. The City has responded but no hearing date has been set.  NPU-D issued a resolution in July opposing a liquor license for the QT.  QT has not yet filed for a liquor license.
