News Nearby: Clifton Ridge Project Under Review by Judge
The small subdivision is on hold – for now.
A DeKalb County judge is reviewing the reviewing the controversial Clifton Ridge subdivision, putting work on hold at least for a few days, according to a report on AJC.COM.
Attorney Robert Buckler wants to build seven homes on about three acres near the intersection of Clifton and Oxford roads and subdivide it, including a cul de sac. Many residents of the historic district say the development violates building guidelines for the area and the Druid Hills Civic Association opposes the project.
Buckler has said he has the proper approvals for the project.
The AJC reports that Superior Court Judge Asha Jackson could rule this week on whether to extend a stop work order on the project, but it could be months before she rules on whether Buckler needs to get clearance for the development from the DeKalb Historic Preservation Board.
