Moratorium Mulling

New, 33 comments

The moratorium that threatened to slam the brakes on Memorial Drive development for six months might not take effect after all, according to the Saporta Report. After Atlanta City Councilmember Natalyn Archibong, the moratorium's sponsor, met with a dozen affected developers (and at least one peeved attorney), she now plans to co-author legislation that would lift the moratorium, claiming she wasn't aware that pending projects would be stalled. The measure was intended to allow officials time to discuss a Memorial Drive vision compiled by Georgia Tech students, but some builders fear it would cause them to miss this development cycle. (Special note: The concerned anonymous homeowner quoted in our earlier report, "Mike", has since reached out to swear he is not a developer, despite commenter speculation to the contrary).
