Approval of Jonquil Village in Smyrna Pisses People Off

New, 17 comments

Tempers ran high as the Smyrna City Council voted to allow for the development of a mixed-use center on a long abandoned site in the heart of the city, according to a Curbed tipster. After three hours of public commentary, the council voted 4-3 to allow Halpern Enterprises to develop 290 apartments and 65,000 square feet of commercial space on a 12.6-acre site, with the details outlined in the Marietta Daily Journal. The approval marks the culmination of a years-long battle about appropriate density on the site, and while the approved plans represent substantially less development than permitted under a 2007 rezoning, many are still unhappy with the vote.
