Community Task Force on county zoning code update

From task force member Betty Blondeau: The Community Task Force on the ZCU is a group of citizens representing every area of DeKalb County. The Task Force has spent many months working with the county commissioners, the county planning and development staff, and community organizations throughout the county studying the very complex 500 page document which was developed by POND, a consulting firm.  The Task Force has focused on strengthening the voice of the communities and neighborhoods in zoning decisions. Presently the proposed code favors developers and staff and makes the citizens' right of appeal complicated and extremely difficult. The Task Force recommendations seek to assure the standing of both nearby residents and county officials to appeal land use decisions.
