The Atlanta City Council’s Community Development Committee signed off on the North Buckhead Neighborhood Master Plan at its June 23 meeting, forwarding it on to the City Council for consideration at its July 6 meeting.
The approval by the committee comes after more than six months of work spearheaded by the North Buckhead Civic Association (NBCA), which held four public meetings and sent out surveys to the 9,000 residents of the district.
NBCA board member Gordon Certain, a 40-year resident of the community, said the master plan was necessary to preserve the single-family homes of the neighborhood and to see mixed-use developments built areas such as Roswell and Lenox roads. Preserving and creating greenspace and road improvements are also top priorities in the master plan.
Certain said he believed North Buckhead would have 12,000 residents by the end of the decade.
