Is Brookhaven a Haven Paradise for Developers?

Is Brookhaven a Haven Paradise for Developers?

Is Brookhaven a Haven Paradise for developers? 

It is a new city with no standards for whatever it wants to do.  Past history for this area of Dekalb Co. indicates that developers can develop anyway they want to. 

Remember the extremely large Mansions being built prior to the recession.  What keeps them from doing the same the same thing now? 

Look at has already been done. 

The development along Dresden Drive and the major development along Peachtree Street near Oglethorpe University.  Look at the development in the Lynwood area.  Was that a Haven for developers? 

What about Dresden Drive?  Maybe it is too poor and really needs grandstyle development.  All these small houses are too small and people in them too poor and they need development especially in Drew Valley, Ashford Park.

Many of us were certainly not pleased with Dekalb Co, but will we be pleased with "THE DEVELOPERS OF BROOKHAVEN"?

You ever try to get Dekalb's horticulturist on the phone... impossible. I have emailed and called about trees around AP in danger of the ax and they don't ever respond. It's a shame. Take a look at that big tree on Bragg that will be gone soon. I'm all for development but I want STRICT environmental codes.

"Take a look at that big tree on Bragg that will be gone soon. I'm all for development but I want STRICT environmental codes." I agree with Kathie Coy ...

Why are they tearing up the land next to the University Baptist Church? NO trees there!

If you don't like trees go live on a desert, but don't make Brookhaven a desert.

What prespective council members and mayoral canidates are for keeping the trees in Brookhaven as has been done in Dunwoody?
