The Overlay

“The Overlay” refers to the Brookhaven-Peachtree Overlay District, a zoning district created by DeKalb County in 2007 to codify the recommendations of the Brookhaven LCI Study.  In general, it lays out the specifics of building, parking and streetscape for new development along Peachtree Road and Dresden Drive in Brookhaven.  The actual text can be found here:  Zoning Ordinance

The Overlay text was drafted by Urban Collage, the same professional urban planning firm that led the LCI Study.  As part of their service, they created a graphic illustration of the key requirements called the Brookhaven-Peachtree Design Guidelines, which can be found here:  Design Guidelines
