Snellville Delays Crematory Decision

The City Council of Snellville responded to opposition and delayed a decision on whether to grant a buiness permit to a crematorium to conduct an study on possible environmental impacts to a neighboring residential area. 

GwinnettBuzz has already noted that the City’s actions jeopardizes the applicant’s property rights to conduct a legal business, but it seems that unless the City has specified a time for action on the permit application the delay also runs afoul of the recent Court of Appeals decision in Curves, LLC v. Spalding County, Georgia.

    This businessman has done everything properly and has “jumped through all the hoops” and it is a disgrace the way this is being handled by the City of Snellville. Nearby residents should realize there are many more less desirable “neighbors” than Cremation Society of the South. They are concerned with “smoke/pollution” – how many of these people smoke? How many plan to be cremated? As a resident of the City, there are other issues more important to be concerned with – how about the “living” criminal element rather than deceased bodies.
    Thank you for the opportunity to express my thoughts.
