Atlanta Approves New Zoning For Buckhead Village

Atlanta City Council approved a new zoning ordinance (SPI-9) for Buckhead covering a significant part of the Buckhead commercial area generally west of Piedmont Avenue and north of Pharr Road.

According to the Buckhead Community Improvement District, the new zoning ordinance positions Buckhead to become “a more walkable, urban community enriched with public art and parks, wide sidewalks, greenspace, transportation options, and outdoor dining, all designed to have international appeal.” ┬áThe ordinance defines street treatments, facades, sidewalk widths, signage, greenspace, and other public elements intended to create a cohesive feel to the community and help developers position their developments with consideration of public space.
