Public Hearings: Tree Ordinance and Impact Fee Updates
June 12, 2020
The City of Atlanta will be hosting public hearings as they prepare updates to the city's tree ordinance and impact fees and they need to hear from you!
The Atlanta City Council's Community Development/Human Services (CD/HS) committee will discuss amendments to their comprehensive development plan on June 22nd at 6:00 pm during a virtual meeting. This hearing will also cover the draft impact fee study, which would increase development fees. While the city's impact fees have not been updated for 25 years, REALTORS® have been advocating that the fees have a reasonable increase.
The Governmental Affairs Committee Chairs of both the Atlanta Commercial Board of REALTORS® and the Atlanta REALTORS® Association, submitted comments urging the City that any fee increase match inflation, that they be implemented incrementally and projects already submitted be grandfathered in.

The CD/HS committee will also be hearing public comments on the proposed tree ordinance update at a virtual meeting on June 25th at 10:00 am. The City has been working to increase the tree canopy, which would make it more difficult for developments and homeowners that may need to alter their property.

If you have any questions or comments, contact Governmental Affairs Director, Aaron Johnson at 404-732-0631.
