Scott Blvd and Blackmon Dr. rezoning meeting [Oct 24]

Broome Capital proposes utilizing the space currently occupied by two houses that face Scott Blvd. to build a self-storage facility. This project will require a change in zoning (the homes are zoned residential) and they are also asking to increase the maximum building height. 

Concern: Problematic precedent
The request compromises the residential nature of the space, impacting Medlock and Tuxworth Springs homes nearby.

Economic Development Strategic Plan Survey

via Commissioner Rader

For a new economic development strategic plan to respond to the unique and diverse voices in DeKalb, your participation and collaboration are key! The process will aim to identify new strategies for recruiting and retaining businesses, identify the right places for the right types of commercial and residential development, and the programs that can make DeKalb a place where everyone can thrive.

We need your opinions, questions, and ideas to make the updated plan as actionable and responsive as possible.

You can find more information at DeKalbCountySEDP.com. District 2 residents and business owners can learn more about SEDP and be part of the conversation. A business survey will be released in October, as well.

Oct 24, 2018 - 6:30-8:30pm - Stonecrest City Hall, Suite 155, Stonecrest

Please join the Economic Development Strategic Plan staff and consultant team for an update and further discussion of the SEDP. Discussion topics will include DeKalb County's demographic and real estate changes, quality of life, potential target industries, and key future employment centers.
