Brookhaven Planning Commission Parking Recommendations

July 15, 2019

The City of Brookhaven’s Planning Commission is submitting recommendations to the City Council that will affect parking requirements in some developments.

At their July 10th meeting, Brookhaven’s Planning Commission voted on recommendations that include requirements for electric vehicle charging stations in parking lots and parking garages, and pre-wiring for residential, commercial and mixed-use developments.

The proposed code amendment would require that 2% of off-street parking in all new multifamily residential, commercial, employment, mixed-use, master planned developments have public charging stations installed. New construction, rehabs and apartment to condominium conversions would also be required to meet the 2% minimum.

While this is a recommendation to the Council, these types of mandated ordinances are driving up development and housing costs. We will work with the City of Brookhaven to come to a reasonable resolution.

If you have any thoughts or recommendations, please contact Governmental Affairs Director Aaron Johnson at 404-732-0631.
