by Patch Staff

Neighborhood Planning Unit-O, which represents the interests of East Lake, the Villages of East Lake, Kirkwood and Edgewood, has its monthly meeting May 22 at 6:30 p.m. in the Branham Recreation Center, 2051 Delano Drive NE.

The key items residents will be asked to decide:

  • Zoning change: The owner of 99 Flora Ave., a single-family home in Edgewood, seeks a variance to reduce the half-depth, front yard setback from 15 feet to 3 feet to allow for the conversion of an existing deck to an enclosed screen porch.
  • City Council Legislation: An ordinance — 12-O-0497 — to amend the City of Atlanta Code of Ordinances to specify the amount of the fines for overtime parking at metered spaces throughout the city of Atlanta. The proposed ordinance reads: (a) "No person shall park any motor vehicle in any area where a parking meter is installed for a longer period of time than the maximum time indicated for the area by an appropriate sign. (b) When a violation as described in subsection (a) above occurs, a citation for overtime parking shall be issued and a fine of $35.00 shall be imposed. (c) If the mandatory $35.00 fine set out in subsection (b) above is not paid in full within fourteen days of the issuance of the citation, the fine shall increase from $35.00 to $70.00. (d) If the $70.00 fine set out in subsection (c) above is not paid in full within forty-five days of the issuance of the citation, the fine shall increase from $70.00 to $95.00. (e) Should the violator elect to appeal the issuance of the citation described herein to the municipal court, the municipal court, pursuant to the provisions of Section 1-8 of the Code of Ordinances, is authorized to impose a civil monetary penalty against persons who violate this section in an amount not to exceed $1,000.00 for each such violation."
