The Sandy Springs City Council voted to extend their 150 day moratorium on special land use permits (SLUP), gas stations and convenience stores to September 30. As reported in February, the Council put this moratorium in place in February to give the staff time to put in place their "Next 10" development plan.
The initial freeze was set to end in July, however staff has requested more time in order to complete the revised plan, allow the Sandy Springs Planning Commission review and have a public hearing. The Council is set to take a vote on the new plan on August 1.
The "Next 10" project is designed to set the pace for the next 10 years of development in Sandy Springs. Because Sandy Springs took on a great deal of Fulton County's planning and zoning when becoming a city, officials are using the 10th anniversary of their incorporation to revamp these laws.
