Separate moratoriums for all three industries were approved at Tuesday’s council meeting in the small DeKalb County city. Officials plan to conduct a rewrite of the Clarkston zoning code and want to be strategic about how available space is used in the future, Councilwoman Y.T. Bell said.
In the meantime, she said, it is best for the city to temporarily block the businesses from opening shop. Resolutions passed by the council argue Clarkston has an “over-abundance” of them, and that they may be negatively impacting the city.
