Peachtree Corners amends zoning for future multi-use trail

The Peachtree Corners city council voted Dec. 15 to add an ordinance to amend the city’s zoning related to trails and open space.

The purpose of the Trails and Open Space zoning classification is to accommodate the city’s future plans for a multi-use trail system along with the development of one or more multi-use trails and associated trail components.

T-O lands are intended to serve passive recreational uses and as an alternative transportation corridor. This zoned land is not intended to be used for sports facility buildings or athletic fields.

Among the provisions of the zoning, land located along the Peachtree Corners Beltline and the Crooked Creek Trail contributing to the multi-use trail will be reimbursed with “density credits” that can be used within the Central Business District.
