Community Meeting on Redan Road Housing
The community is invited to a public meeting about a proposed housing development on Redan Road near Sherrington. The meeting is at 7 pm, June 14, at 4960 Redan Road, Suite A (The Higher Ground Tabernacle of Praise).
REA Ventures would like to rezone the property from single family (R-100) to residential small lot mix (RSM). This would allow the firm to build 42 single-family townhomes and 8 single-family detached homes.
The homes will be “Earthcraft-certified,” which meets high environmental standards. The site plan incorporates a club house, a community green, a tot lot, and a community garden, as well as passive open space.
The firm specializes in affordable workforce housing and senior housing. This project, the company says, would provide rental assistance to working families who have low incomes. The firm will describe the review process and tenant requirements at the meeting.

Playgrounds and Pavilions – What do you like?
The Friends of Hairston Park invite you – especially KIDS – to a design review, June 24, 11:30 a.m., at Mainstreet Community Center, 5001 Mainstreet Park, Stone Mountain. The Parks Department will be there to show us ideas for the new playground. We want to hear from kids to find out what you like.
We’ll also get opinions on the pavilion and other improvements planned for Hairston Park. We look forward to seeing you.
The Greater Hidden Hills CDC worked to secure a grant for the park. In May, DeKalb County approved investing $141,000 of park bond money on the park. The Parks Department will pitch in for the pavilion, and we are working to raise money for other improvements.
