Staff Comments:
Please click for Final Zoning Analysis
Staff recommends  DENIAL.  The applicant’s proposal is located deep within a platted subdivision, mostly surrounded by single-family houses. The applicant’s request is located in an area designated as Low Density Residential on the Cobb County Comprehensive Plan. The R-15 zoning district is primarily intended for single-family residential uses. The proposal could intensify over time, and could encourage additional requests in this residential subdivision. Lastly, the applicant’s proposal could be disruptive and destabilizing to the surrounding residential properties.
ECCA position: OPPOSE, this is an unsuitable use in a residential district.
Planning Commission Recommendation: DENIED by 5-0 vote
  • Requested Code Enforcement to ask that the maximum fine of $1000 be levied when the case is heard in Magistrate Court on Feb. 19th
  • Asked Community Development to see if all building codes are being adhered to. 
  • Tenants are to vacate property in 15 days.
Board of Commissioners Action: Not available yet
