Decatur Proposed Moratorium on Residential Demolition and Tree Removal Now Being Considered SeparatelyDecatur Metro | October 19, 2013
Updated information is now available regarding the proposed temporary moratorium on single-family residential structural demolition and large tree removal as a part of construction or renovation. This proposal was initially made available on October 14, 2013 as a single ordinance. However, after public review and feedback, the two issues have been separated into individual ordinances that can be discussed and acted upon separately.
The City Commission will discuss the proposals during the work session and regular meeting on Monday, October 21, 2013 at Decatur City Hall, 509 N. McDonough St. Both meetings are open to the public.
- 6:30pm- Work Session
- 7:30pm- Regular Meeting
If either or both proposals are adopted, the properties affected would be limited to those zoned R-60 and R-85 Single Family Residential. Each moratorium would be effective through Jan. 24, 2014.
- Memo from City Manager - October 18
- Ordinance O-13-AA - Temporary moratorium on permits for structural demolitions
- Ordinance O-13-BB – Temporary moratorium on permits for large tree removals
