City Council Denies Townhomes On Shallowford Road; Developer Does Not Show

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

The City Council on Tuesday night denied a request for rezoning for eight townhouse units in the 7700 block of Shallowford Road.

Yuriy Liashevskiy, who had sought to put the eight townhomes in a single building, did not show up for the hearing.

However, a number of citizens in opposition did.

Joe Schultz said the project was not in keeping with the single-family-home character of the neighborhood.

He said the developer had also not appeared on a variance request.

Greg Haynes of the Regional Planning Agency staff said it had been recommended that the townhomes be in two buildings of four units each.

Walking Among Memories, The USS LST-325
