Atlanta Makes Changes to Building Permits

It is not uncommon for building permits to be taken from one property and placed on the site of a non-permitted project. To prevent such unlawful activity, the City Of Atlanta Office of Buildings has redesigned the document. Office of Buildings staff presented to the new designs to the Technical Advisory Committee (on which ACBR holds a seat) and we are excited to see incremental progress happening to improve permitting in the City of Atlanta.

Costly Impact Fees for Alpharetta, Milton and Forsyth County

New Impact Fee programs have been proposed for Alpharetta, Milton and Forsyth County. These fees, some nearing $9,000 per residential unit, place an unreasonably high burden on developers and home builders, the cost of which will be passed on to customers. The Board is concerned that the fees, as proposed, place an unreasonably high burden on developers and home builders, the cost of which will be passed on to customers. In practice this may deter applicants from bringing quality housing and development to these area. Such projects will instead benefit competing communities by expanding their tax bases, resources, and amenities. Deriving such significant fees from ambitious Parks and Recreation and Roads plans also unfairly burdens those who remain truly committed to investing in these areas. It is these citizens who will fund the bulk of these projects which, in turn, will benefit all residents.
