- Introduction: Sandy Springs is making changes to its Development Code to guide future growth in our city.
Sandy Springs is making changes to its Development Code to guide future growth in our city and effectively implement the planning priorities articulated in the Next Ten Comprehensive Plan. The new Development Code will unify existing development regulations—zoning, subdivision and environmental standards—into a single, graphically-rich document that is easy to use and understand. The document will bring more predictability and certainty to the development approval process.
OPEN HOUSE AND PUBLIC MEETING
You can view the Development Code framework from a city-wide perspective on Monday, March 20 at City Hall. The Open House starts at 4 p.m. followed by the Meeting at 6 p.m.
Public Meeting Agendas and Minutes
Prior to meetings of City Council, board and commissions, agendas with supporting documents are posted online. During a City Council meeting, items that are noted as new business, unfinished business, public hearing or a part of a zoning agenda (heard the second Council meeting of the month) will be discussed and available for public comment. If you would like to speak during a Council meeting, please fill out a public comment card and submit it to the City Clerk prior to the meeting start (Comment Cards are available as you enter Council chambers). Make sure to print clearly your name and the agenda item number for the item about which you wish to speak. Work Session immediately follows the regular meeting, and as the name implies, it is an opportunity for the City Council to discuss - but not vote - on individual items of business. Executive Sessions are held on an as-needed basis and in following state law, are called to discuss topics including: employee matters, pending litigation, future acquisition of real estate, staff meetings regarding investigative purposes, and tax matters. If any of the topics discussed requires a vote, the Mayor and City Council will call for the vote in a public forum.
Minutes are not issued for the following meetings: Community Developer Resolution, Community Zoning Information
To view agenda documents, you will need PDF software or web-browser plug-in. The Google Chrome web-browser has a PDF viewer built in and is available for download free of charge.
