Z-18-100 – An Ordinance to amend the Zoning Ordinance of the City of Atlanta (Part 16), as amended, by amending and clarifying various provisions of the text of the Zoning Ordinance, including individual zoning district regulations, with regard to the subject areas and provisions that follow: Accessory Dwellings (Section 1 below); Definitions (Section 2 below); Uses in Industrial Districts (Section 3 below); Loading Requirements (Section 4 below); MRC Residential Density (Section 5 below); New Multi-Unit Housing Zoning District and Regulations (Section 6 below); Parking (Section 7 below); Neighborhood Design Standards (Section 8 below); Telecommunications (Section 9 below); Transitional Height Planes (Section 10 below); and Quality of Life Districts (Section 11 below); to amend multiple sections of the Zoning Ordinance related to bicycle parking requirements so as to coordinate with certain cross references in Ordinance number 18-O1023 (Z-17-93) and correct certain scrivener’s errors therein (Section 12); to repeal conflicting laws; and for other purposes.
The proposed MR-MU zoning will have a significant impact on Home Park.. This zoning will be allowed in neighborhoods that are zoned low density or medium density and will allow developers to build 12-unit apartment houses among single family houses with zero lot lines. Neighborhoods that are zoned “single family residential” like most of Virginia Highlands and Morningside will be protected from this. However, Home Park is not zone “single family residential” It’s zone low density/med density.
