Proposed changes to the DeKalb County Zoning Ordinance has generated serious interest among citizens and property owners throughout the county. A Public Hearing on the subject was held Thursday, Feb. 24 at the DeKalb County Health Department, Multi-Purpose Room. The room was near filled to capacity.
Among the proposed changes include renaming (or titling) R-1, R-2, B-1 and M-1 zoning property in unincorporated DeKalb County to include the word "conservation." (Example: R-1 Conservation.
The stated purpose of these changes is to force all residential, commercial and industrial development to land that can be annexed by an incorporated community. Provisions exist that would allow development in rural areas subject to Planned Urban Development (PUD) stipulations.
This proposal is the county zoning department's second attempt at changes to the zoning ordinance. The first attempt would have rendered many rural properties as "legal non-conforming." Citizen input that expressed concerns regarding the "legal non-conforming" tag created the impetus for the new proposal.
Citizens who addressed the Hearing Officer (Ron Klein) appeared evenly split in support or opposition to the new proposed changes. That marks significant improvement, in terms of public reaction, over the original proposal.
