The Ashford Park Civic Association will meet Thursday, March 1 at 7 p.m. at the recreation building in Ashford Park located at 2980 Redding Road (corner of Redding Road and Caldwell Road with parking/entrance off Caldwell).
The agenda for the meeting will begin with a presentation by representatives from Savi Market to provide information regarding the store's development and solicit comments from the community with respect to the planned expansion plans, followed by a discussion of options that may be available to provide additional security in the Ashford Park neighborhood.
For those attendees from the 'greater' Brookhaven area who may only be interested in the Savi expansion plans, issues specific to Ashford Park will be discussed following the Savi presentation.
Savi Urban Market has filed for a variance to expand its current one-story facility to two stories. Some residents in the neighborhood are concerned that the already congested area will only get worse, in addition to the fact that some modifications Savi was considering are not promoted in the Brookhaven LCI.
Meanwhile, Savi has been collecting signatures on a petition to prove to DeKalb County its support from the community. Last week, the petition had nearly 800 signatures.
