How does the Planning Department provide notice to the public about zoning & development issues?
The Planning Department relies upon a variety of media to issue public notice. For public notices required by local ordinance and state statutes, a legal advertisement is placed in the Athens Banner Herald and a sign is posted on the subject property. Notification letters are mailed to all property owners within 400 feet of a proposed rezone, special use, or planned development, and within 400 feet of some demolitions (if the district commissioner requests a 90 day review of a proposed demolition, notices are mailed). Email notifications are sent out via the Neighborhood Notification Initiative.
