Welcome to the DeKalb County Zoning Code Update web-page.  The following articles constitute a Public Draft of the updated Zoning Code. This update is the culmination of several meetings with community groups, task force groups, committees, and various county boards. Additionally, an extensive review was conducted spanning over more than a year by not only the DeKalb County Planning & Sustainability staff, but the Public Work’s divisions of Transportation and Engineering and  Economic Development. The purpose of the Zoning Code Update is to implement the policies of the DeKalb County 2015 Comprehensive Plan. Its goal is to create a user-friendly document and to balance greater design standards. This web-page includes Schedule of public hearings, technical memos, and additional helpful information that will further explain the Zoning Code Update. We have provided a comments section in hopes that the public will review and provide feedback regarding the the various elements of the Zoning Code Update.
