What’s with the Building Permit Appeal Signs at Suburban Plaza?Decatur Metro | January 28, 2013
If you’ve noticed the blue “Public Notice Board of Appeals Notice” signs surrounding Suburban Plaza recently, you may have wondered “What’s that all about?”.
Well, the Medlock Area Neighborhood Association website has the answer. Deanne sent around a note pointing to this latest post…
MANA has received clarification on the basis of the appeal, filed January 9th by Good Growth Dekalb’s (GGD) attorney on behalf of GGD and Kristina and Abhay Mishra. The appeal states that:
- Medlock Road is not an authorized truck route, and therefore Walmart’s use of this road violates DeKalb Code Section 17-94
- various hydrology requirements were not met, and
- there are various violations of the county Tree Protection Ordinance
DeKalb County thoroughly reviewed the redevelopment plan and determined that all criteria were met before granting the building permit. Selig is confident they’ve met the criteria and is prepared to address the appeal at the Feb. 13th hearing.
According to Deanne, the hearing will be held on Feb 13 at 1pm in the DeKalb County Auditorium at 1300 Commerce Dr. in Decatur.
