Update: Zaxby's to Discuss its Proposed Restaurant With Overlay Committee
Zaxby's reps are scheduled to meet tonight with Hidden Hills civic and overlay committee members to discuss variances it is seeking from the Greater Hidden Hills Overlay District. Then there is a board of appeals meeting on the matter on Sept. 12.
Updated 2:36 p.m., Sept. 5: Patch has learned that the owner of the proposed Zaxby's is scheduled to meet with members of the overlay committee and Hidden Hills Civic Association Board today, Wednesday, Sept. 5, to talk about the variances it wants from the overlay code.
Here is the original story:
Zaxby's is eyeing a location on S. Hairston Road.
The Athens, Ga.-based chain is interested in building a restaurant at 1152 S. Hairston Rd., information on a public notice sign indicates.
The address is currently that of the now-shuttered Dairy Queen, a stand-alone building, located across from Pizza Hut on S. Hairston near the corner of Redan Road.
The restaurant wants variances, or exceptions, from the Greater Hidden Hills Overlay District, which is a special zoning district.
The board of appeals meeting is set for Sept 12 at 1 p.m. at the DeKalb County Auditorium, 1300 Commerce Drive in Decatur.
The Greater Hidden Hills Overlay District includes -- among other things -- design standards for new buildings and landscaping within the defined overlay area, which covers about four square miles.
The overlay district is bordered by Covington Highway, S. Hairston Road, Redan Road and Panola Road.
Patch has contacted Zaxby's media relations person to learn more about its plans.
