Atlanta Neighborhood Planning Unit B

Zoning Committee

Hears requests for rezoning, variances, special use permits and Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) appeals. The applicant or representative presents the request to the Committee and neighborhood and general citizen comment is solicited at this time. The Committee then forwards its recommendation to the NPU Board for a vote. The NPU recommendation regarding variance requests are forwarded to the BZA, a decision making body. The NPU recommendation regarding rezoning applications and special use permits are forwarded to the Zoning Review Board (ZRB), which in turn forwards its recommendations to the City Council Zoning Committee. The Council Zoning Committee recommendation is voted on by the City Council, a decision making legislative body.

The Zoning Committee meets at 7:00 p.m. on the Tuesday one (1) week prior to the NPU Board meeting.
