SWANCY REZONING FOR SENIOR LIVING – PLANNING COMMISSION @ Dunwoody City Hall & Online via Zoom
Aug 11 @ 6:00 pm

Meeting Agenda

To speak to this issue in public comment, either in person or via Zoom, please contact the city clerk at the email link above.

The acreage around Swancy Farmhouse, an historic home across Chamblee-Dunwoody road from Dunwoody Nature Center and Austin Elementary, has been the subject of redevelopment for a couple of years.

The local homeowners of older ranch homes around the property have sold their land and developers have been trying to rezone it for "niche" neighborhoods.  Both proposals involve reducing the zoning density from R-100 (lots have minimum 100 feet of street frontage) to R-50 lots (half the street frontage with about 10 feet between homes).  Both proposals also must contend with a privately-owned easement and permission to access it for proper drainage. Both proposals are designed as "age targeted" developments to address the growing need for senior-friendly housing with different features than those enjoyed by younger families.

The first attempt was a proposed 10-unit development of 2-3 story homes that the developer proposed as "senior friendly" with a "master on the main".  This proposal was withdrawn last year.

The latest proposal by Peachland Homes includes a R-50 rezoning with homes designed as single-story bungalows with a partial second-story loft in some models.  Questions regarding the private easement remain.
