WHOLE FOODS UPDATE

Good Growth DeKalb is represented on the DeKalb Cross-Neighborhoods Council (DCNC) and working with SJ Collins, the developer of the 365 by Whole Foods development at the Nalley properties on Church Street, North Decatur Road, and Milscott Drive.

SJ Collins has tried to be proactive and has included many amenities the DCNC has requested in the past, including: wide landscaped bike/pedestrian paths along the perimeter, defined internal street and pedestrian pathways, and safe crossings into the development.

SJ Collins has also provided the community with a forum for input on green space/park design (see meeting notice). DCNC continues to request meaningful workforce housing be included in the apartment development and we are encouraged by the preliminary efforts of SJ Collins and the apartment developer.

We will keep you updated as the process continues, and encourage you to attend the meetings and submit any feedback to crossneighborhoodscommittee@gmail.com.

MEDLINE LCI STUDY ADOPTED

After addressing and incorporating areas of concern brought forward by the DeKalb Cross Neighborhoods Council, the DeKalb County Board of Commissioners adopted the Medline LCI study. With the plan’s adoption on July 19, it will act as a guiding template for further development in the corridor.
