On September 12, the Clarkston City Council Housing & Legal Committee held a public meeting to discuss the rezoning request for the property located at Church and Glendale Road, ways to encourage the development of affordable housing in Clarkston, and a potential alcohol license for the Exxon located at 1051 Montreal Road. We heard from Matthew Cardinale, who has worked on affordable housing ordinances for several other cities, including the City of Atlanta. Members of the public also provided feedback on the rezoning request, affordable housing and the alcohol license for the Exxon.
I am working on an ordinance to permit "mother-in-law suites" in residential areas to provide more affordable housing options for the elderly and other residents of Clarkston, and that ordinance was discussed at the meeting as well.
As always, your feedback on any of these topics is welcomed-please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
