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.
