CITY OF SANDY SPRINGS IMPLEMENTS 150 DAY MORATORIUM
Developers planning to submit Rezoning and Special Land Use permits in the city of Sandy Springs will have to wait 150 days before making those submissions. During its Feb. 7, 2017 meeting, the Sandy Springs City Council approved a resolution enacting the 150-day moratorium on all Rezoning and Special Land Use Permit applications. The moratorium aligns with timing for the City’s expected adoption of new development code in conjunction with its Next Ten Comprehensive Land Use Planning process.
“We have spent the past 18 months going through a community-wide process to develop the City’s Comprehensive Land Use Plan and are in the midst of updating our development code to support that vision. All new requests need to align with the new planning, and this pause allows us to have the necessary development regulations in place,” said Sandy Springs Mayor Rusty Paul.
The moratorium takes place immediately. Public input meetings related to the Sandy Springs Development Code are scheduled to begin in March, continuing in April, with a finalized plans presented to the City Council for adoption this summer.
