At the Dec. 16 meeting, the DeKalb County Board of Commissioners voted to approve the Panola Slope zoning requests. Now, work can get underway to redevelop the vacant townhomes near Young Road, Hidden Creek, and Covington Highway. APD Solutions plans a luxury resort and entertainment complex, with restaurants and electronic games. The goal is to open the new facility by Summer 2015.
The project passed with the conditions suggested by the DeKalb Planning Department. These conditions limit the number of games and the square footage of entertainment space. They require a new access road into the facility and a 50-foot tree and shrubbery buffer between the development and the residences. It also requires no alcohol service after 2:00 a.m, a minimum number of security officers, and compliance with the county’s noise ordinance.
The Greater Hidden Hills Community Development Corporation supports this initiative to invest in our area.
