At the Special General Meeting to consider a proposed rezoning of 1692 Springer St NW neighbors overwhelmingly voted to oppose the application and preserve the existing residential zoning.
This is important because a rezoning could fundamentally impact the single-family core of Underwood Hills.
As UHNA NPU-D Rep Eva Nason explains;
"The house on this lot has been used in a commercial way for some time, but this has been a "grandfathered" use and cannot be used as a precedent for allowing other lots on Springer St. to be commercially rezoned. Also, so long as it remains residentially zoned, it cannot set a precedent for allowing the first lots on other residential streets in Underwood Hills to be commercially rezoned."
But, this UHNA vote only counts as one vote at upcoming meetings!
Neighbors are strongly encouraged to attend the 2 additional, increasingly important meetings at which a vote will be taken on the Springer St. Rezoning Application, Z-23-017.
The first of these is the NPU-D meeting on Tuesday, April 25 by zoom and at the Agape Community Center at 2210 Marietta Blvd. (this is the vote to which the city's Zoning Review Board pays attention).
The decision to rezone or not is made by the Zoning Review Board at City Hall in an evening meeting on May 4 or 11. Citizens may attend this meeting and stand up to oppose or approve and each side is given a very limited time in which to speak.
Letters regarding Z-23-017 may also be sent to:
City of Atlanta/Department of Planning and Community Development
55 Trinity Ave, SW 30303."
Details of the meetings including zoom links and associated documents are on the UHNA Calendar
