The scheduled neighborhood meeting tonight to review Michel Arnette’s proposal for a new music club at 1411 Dresden has been canceled.  Michele has informed us that he is withdrawing his variance application due to neighbors’ opposition and an uncertain agreement with the property owner.

Neighborhood Meeting on Dresden Variance Request

DeKalb Planning, BPCA Recommend Denial

There will be a neighborhood meeting Thursday night @ 7 PM at University Baptist Church (yes, the same place we vote) to discuss Michel Arnette’s application for variances to allow a restaurant/music venue in an existing building at 1411 Dresden Drive.  Please come learn more about Mr. Arnette’s proposed project and voice your opinion.

We have just learned that the DeKalb Planning Department has recommended denial of the variances.  The BPCA also is recommending denial and has sent the following letter to Board of Zoning Appeals representatives Bill Draper and Liz Beyer.   The letter details our reasons why we do not think the variances are a good idea.
