*New Zoning May Change Buckhead*

Buckhead is on the verge of getting new zoning rules that could help transform its traffic-choked streets into the next pocket of New Urbanism.
The plan calls for an expansion of the public interest zoning district, SPI-9, currently centered in the Buckhead Village near the planned $1.5 Billion “Street…s of Buckhead”.

This expansion will include the intersections: Peachtree and Piedmont, Piedmont and Pharr, Pharr annd Peachtree, East Andrews at Roswell, and Roswell at West Paces Ferry.
