Suggested points to make – but the best letter/email/phone call expresses your own feelings on why Clifton Ridge is bad for Druid Hills:

(Of course, when you write/email/call Jeff Rader and Kathie Gannon, it will be to thank them for opposing Clifton Ridge so steadfastly – they have been our strongest allies throughout this whole ordeal. The below points are for all the other commissioners.)

  • Why hasn’t the Clifton Ridge developer been required to win the same approval from our Historic Preservation Commission as a regular homeowner like me? In 10 years, he has never won HPC approval for a single one of his applications.
  • If this developer can do this at Clifton Ridge, why can’t the next developer do it on a lot near me? This sets a disastrous precedent for all of Druid Hills – one that could well ruin the physical integrity of our neighborhood forever.
  • How did the “limited” Certificate of Appropriateness (just two items were listed) you voted for, over the objections of our DH commissioners, turn into a Land Disturbance Permit that includes everything from cutting 89 trees to installing a storm water detention system, as well as installing utilities, among many other items?
  • Why did you vote to go against the written recommendations of the profession staff advising both the Planning Commission and the Zoning Board of Appeals? [Of course, Jeff Rader and Kathie Gannon voted for, not against the neighborhood; so when writing them, thank them for their on-going support!]

Thanks so much for expressing your opposition to Clifton Ridge – it will definitely make an impact!
