APPEAL FILED DECEMBER 13
Good Growth DeKalb appealed the dismissal of our lawsuit against DeKalb County. The lawsuit arose from the planned redevelopment of Suburban Plaza shopping center, and contended that Good Growth DeKalb’s appeal of the Walmart building permit was improperly heard by the DeKalb County Zoning Board of Appeals.
On October 31, Judge Tangela Barrie issued an order that denies not only our right, but the right of any citizen to challenge the issuance of a building permit and to challenge DeKalb County’s failure to follow its own ordinances.
At issue here is not only the redevelopment of Suburban Plaza, but the rights of any affected person to ask the county follow its own laws in issuing building permits.

ZONING PLAN UPDATE
Because of concerns and opposition to the new DeKalb County zoning plan, a vote to make it law has been deferred. A home is the biggest investment most of us will ever make in our life, no matter if our homes are worth $50,000 or a $1 million. Good Growth DeKalb has advocated slowing the process for zoning revision, critical for our county. To see our statement on the new plan, click here.
