City Proposes Zoning Change for Central Conyers Activity Center

In 2009, a comprehensive study was performed for the city of Conyers by professional planning consultants in conjunction with the city planning staff, which identified and studied the Central Conyers Activity Center, an area identified as one of the Atlanta Regional Commission’s Livable Centers Initiatives (LCI).

The Central Conyers Activity Center (CCAC) is a swath of land south of Olde Town Conyers, adjacent to Interstate 20 between the West Avenue and Georgia Highway 138 interchanges.  The study area also borders Dogwood Drive and Green Street.

The Central Conyers Activity Center LCI Plan strives to encourage new development, connectivity and economic activity within the study area.  In order to address the recommendations for the area, the city of Conyers is proposing to amend the Comprehensive Land Use Plan and change the zoning district of the CCAC to MxD (Mixed-Use Development District).

If you are a resident or property owner in this area, stay tuned for more information on upcoming meetings and public hearings in the coming months that will further explain what this rezoning means to you.

Town hall meeitngs for those in the Central Conyers Activity Center will be held on Tuesday, September 27 from 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. and Tuesday, October 11 from 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m.  Both meetings will be held in City Council Chambers, the second floor of the Conyers Police Department located at 1194 Scott Street.
