2.  4365/4405/4425 LEXINGTON ROAD 


Request:  An amendment to the Planned Development (PD) for the East Athens Marketplace Shopping Center is requested in order to remove a condition previously approved by the Mayor & Commission. The initial PD was approved in 1999 and amended in 2002 and 2013, and includes outparcels for commercial development that has not yet occurred. The request is to remove a condition that requires Planning Commission review and Mayor and Commission approval of any development proposed for the outparcels. If this condition is removed, any future development on the outparcels would be reviewed through Athens-Clarke County’s regular construction permitting process and be subject to the existing PD design guidelines and the relevant Athens-Clarke County design standards.
