DHCA Supports Appeal

The board of the Druid Hills Civic Association has voted to support the appeal of a group of concerned citizens regarding the construction of an accessory structure at 1680 East Clifton Road. The DeKalb County Historic Preservation Commission recently approved a Certificate of Appropriateness for a two-bedroom, two-bath carriage house with a separate driveway and deck on this property. Neighbors believe the approval will establish a precedent that may ultimately destroy part of the remaining old-growth Piedmont Forest which continues to flourish behind several homes on East Clifton Road. The appeal to the DeKalb County Board of Commissioners is next Tuesday, January 27, 10am at the Maloof Auditorium. NOTE: The Board of Commissioners subsequently reversed the HPC’s decision, citing “an abuse of discretion” and declaring the purported COA “null and void on its face.”
