Auto Village denied by Marietta City Council

An application to open Auto Village was turned down recently by the Marietta City Council.

Councilman Grif Chalfant, who made the motion for denial, said the residents in the area did not want this 16,000-square-foot development at 1101 Powder Springs St. based upon a community meeting he held Saturday.

Auto Village officials had contacted the city by email and phone a few hours before the council meeting to say they would be out of town and wanted the matter to be tabled for a month while they work with the community to deal with their concerns.

However, Auto Village can reapply as soon as two months from now if meeting all of the legal requirements.
