Parkwood Historic District
The City Commission of the City of Decatur, Georgia, has unanimously approved an ordinance amending Section 58 of the Decatur City Code to create the “Parkwood Historic District.”
The July 7 vote follows the April 21 vote to annex the Parkwood Neighborhood, which was petitioned by residents in January 2014: http://wp.me/p1H6Pf-Q7
The amended ordinance means that homeowners within the newly created historic district must obtain a Certificate of Appropriateness and meet specific design criteria if they wish to make any material changes to the exterior of their homes.
The 3.2-acre Parkwood Park also was annexed by the City of Decatur.
