Cobb County is in the process of amending zoning codes. One of the code amendments under review is to replace the CCRC (Continuing Care Retirement Community) code by making improvements to the existing RSL (Residential Senior Living) code to allow for multi-stage senior living. Isakson Living tried to rezone the Tritt property under the CCRC code.
Unlike the CCRC code, the RSL code protects wetlands and does not allow them to be used in density calculations. In addition, the RSL code provides for a specific number of allowable units in a zoning category. Also, in contrast to the CCRC, the RSL limits buildings to 2-stories and 35-feet in LDR (Low Density Residential) areas.
We need you to email the Commissioners to let them know that the community is in favor of replacing the existing CCRC code with these proposed RSL code amendments which grant more protection for residential communities.
Those opposed to these zoning code changes will be pressing the Board of Commissioners for less restrictive requirements on height and density again (see previous blog posts here and here), and using their influence to keep the existing CCRC code in place &/or asking for a loosening of restrictions that exist in the RSL code.
Please take a moment to email and make your voices heard on this issue to encourage the Board of Commissioners to make the zoning code changes to protect residential communities.
