Rezoning on Lawrenceville Highway for New RaceTrac Store?
Residents around McLendon Elementary School plan to attend a May 9 meeting about the rezoning application.
North Druid Hills-Briarcliff Patch reader Becky Baldwin sent over a notice about a rezoing application meeting next week that's got some neighborhood people rattled.
Some of them are planning to attend a meeting at McLendon Elementary School on May 9 about RaceTrac's plans to rezone property along Lawrenceville Highway between Orion and Hollywood drives south of North DeKalb Mall.
According to a notice issued to community members, the land is currently zoned RM-HD (or Multifamily Residential District, according to the most recent copy of zoning district definitions I could find for the county) and RaceTrac wants it rezoned as Office-Institutional, which allows for lower intensity offices, institutions and health service activities where buildings are limited to two stories.
The meeting will be held in the school's cafeteria from 7pm - 8pm.
And if you're not familiar with RaceTrac, they're a big QuikTrip competitor.
