LEGAL ACTION FILED
On Friday, March 15, attorneys for Good Growth DeKalb filed suit in DeKalb County Superior Court, contending that the County granted a building permit for construction of a Walmart Supercenter at Suburban Plaza in violation of its own ordinances.
In early January, we filed an internal DeKalb County administrative appeal contending that truck, tree and hydrology ordinances were not followed in granting the building permit to Selig Enterprises, owner of Suburban Plaza. This appeal was directed to the Technical Board of Appeals, as required by county law. However, the Technical Board of Appeals does not exist.
We believe the county must follow its own ordinances, listen to the vast majority of residents who oppose this development and develop a long-range development plan for the county that promotes truly sustainable growth — as opposed to outdated big box development that worsens traffic, destroys neighborhoods and overtaxes infrastructure.
