    About 29 people present
    Meeting called to order at 7:11 pm
    Last month’s minutes accepted

    President’s Report (Darin)
    Moratorium extended on SUP (special use permit) for Murphy triangle. Pressure from us, Beltline, Joyce’s office and surrounding neighborhoods to make these positive changes. Have heard about problems decided best to move the area to light industrial went from I2 to I1. I2 had allowed companies like Pirkle to operate. I1 eliminates heavy industry (scrap yards) and allows some of the historic important industrial buildings to be converted. Any current scrap yards are grandfathered in. Not all businesses are bad in this area. Once zoning changed, they cannot expand and it becomes difficult to make changes to their properties. If you feel strongly about this, contact Joyce Shepard’s office or Atlanta Beltline Authority.

    There are mixed feelings about value of employment vs problems that this area causes, such as dumping issues due to lack of oversight and vacancy. There are good, legitimate businesses in this area who are also victimized. More information on Capitolview.org\murphy-triangle-rezoning
