Zoning and NPU-B Report

Neighborhood Restaurants

The following was reported by Waldtraut  "Walda" Lavroff (NPU-B Chair and NBCA Zoning Committee Chair)

NBCA's web site--www.nbca.org/restaurants.asp--has a list of local restaurants -- North Buckhead has about 40.  We invite you (customers, not owners) to send in comments about the ones you like.  Mail your comments to PO Box 420391 or NorthBuckhead@yahoo.com.

NBCA Zoning Committee has processed very few applications in recent months although much construction activity going -- it all appears to be within code. 

A group has been formed through the leadership of City Council member Clair Muller.  It is to determine ways to facilitate East-West transportation to and from Buckhead (including all parts of North Buckhead) without compromising the neighborhoods' safety and quality of life.  Our Zoning Committee chair will keep us posted.

NPU-B submitted priorities for the 2004 City's  Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP), including:

  • Implement a transportation/traffic management plan for Buckhead;
  • Pursue more greenspace, parks and pedestrian amenities;
  • Protect neighborhoods from commercial and non-residential encroachment;
  • Redefine and possibly expand the SPI-9 district. It now includes only the core Buckhead Village.
