The Mayor and City Council unanimously approved a resolution that imposes a three-month moratorium on the acceptance of applications for new buildings, additions and developments in residentially zoned parcels within the “downtown character” area, namely historic Old Town.
The 90 days will be used to evaluate current architectural standards outlined in the City’s Zoning Ordinance. Its purpose is to ensure that developers work in partnership with the City to preserve and create an architectural and aesthetic character that embraces the old with the new.
Going forward, the City will not accept applications for new buildings, additions or new developments on residentially zoned parcels in the downtown character area for three months. However, about 180 parcels zoned R1 or R2 in the character area may be subject to the moratorium.
Adopted Jan. 8, 2024, the measure doesn’t apply to the following properties within the downtown character area:
existing structure to comply with maintenance regulations.
The City will work with the Lilburn Community Improvement District and a consultant in this endeavor.
