Sandy Springs will resume public hearings for zonings cases on Jan. 19. Public hearings have been halted twice since the start of the pandemic, most recently in early December when new cases of the coronavirus began to surge in Georgia.

Commenters on zoning matters can address City Council, the Planning Commission or Board of Appeals virtually as the meetings take place or from a podium in the Studio Theatre at City Springs, where it will be live-streamed to officials, a city statement said. City Springs is located at 1 Galambos Way, Sandy Springs.

A third option of submitting a written comment will also be available. Written comments must be submitted by noon on the day of the meeting using the public comment form found on the Sandy Springs website. The comments can be read into the record, the statement said.

Public hearings for zoning cases are heard by City Council during the last meeting of the month. Meetings are generally held every other Tuesday.

Sandy Springs suspended in-person comments on general issues in March. Residents’ public comments on city matters can only be submitted in writing and are posted on the city website. They are not read during meetings by the city clerk.
