Snellville officials work on active adult zoning specifics

SNELLVILLE - Snellville councilman Warren Auld, in a special-called meeting Monday night, announced that council members were not yet ready to finalize the details of the proposed active adult zoning designation being considered by the city.

"At the November 27 hearing there was confusion about the ordinance and proposed amendment. Since the time of the first reading, there has been significant input received, even as late as today," Auld said. "The interest in this ordinance is significant. It's a very important one."

The most recent version of the amendment to the zoning ordinance was available for citizens to review Monday night. The most obvious change to previous versions was that the original version has now been divided into four sections: single-story, villa, villa cluster and continuous campus care.

According to council member Kelly Kautz, who has been instrumental in constructing this zoning ordinance amendment, the four divisions are critical to the success of the active adult zoning designation.

Kautz asked residents to read the current version and give the council their input either via telephone or e-mail.

The second reading of the text amendments to the zoning ordinance is scheduled for the Jan. 22 City Council meeting.
