Feb. 13 Zoning Hearing Scheduled on Clifton Ridge Subdivision
Opponents say project is not in keeping with character of Druid Hills.
The group of Druid Hills residents who oppose the Clifton Ridge Subdivision project will have another opportunity to voice their displeasure before the DeKalb County Zoning Appeals Board, which has scheduled a 1 p.m. hearing Feb. 13 in the Maloof Building, 1300 Commerce Drive in downtown Decatur.
The hearing follows a DeKalb County Superior Court judge's issuance of a temporary restraining order halting work on the project for a 30-day period so the court can address concerns raised by the Druid Hills Civic Association, which opposes the subdivision.
Atlanta attorney Robert Buckler wants to build seven homes on roughly three acres off Cfifton and Oxford roads.
Opponents say the plans are not in keeping with the character of the historic Druid Hills community.
Allowing Buckler to move forward, they have charged, will allow other developers to do as they please.
Buckler, for his part, has said the project has received all the proper permits and he expects it will proceed eventually.
