2014 MLF initiatives related to Roswell UDC program:

The committee continues to monitor the Council regarding decisions related to the UDC.  The first reading of the ordinance occurred in January; the 2nd reading was held on February 10, however, due to a number of unresolved issues the Council deferred final vote until their next meeting on February 24.  MLF attended the 2/10 meeting and read a letter of concern to the Council which had been authorized by the MLF Board.  Ask your Board Director for a copy if you'd like to review the letter.

The Community Development Committee gathers and distributes information on community issues that impact property values and the quality of life within Martin's Landing.  Please contact Linell at comdev@martinslanding.org if you'd like to participate on this committee. 

In May 2013, the MLF Community Development Committee was reformed in light of the changes that are being made to the City of Roswell Unified Development Code and its impact on our community.  We are looking for interested members of the MLF community who would be willing to volunteer their time on this committee to do the following:
                 1)  work on various aspects of these changes as they relate to MLF interests 
                 2)  consult with MLF counsel regarding our concerns
                 3)  schedule and coordinate informational meetings with the MLF residents on the pending changes and their impact on life within MLF and Roswell.

We work with the City of Roswell and other local entities to monitor and influence development decisions (residential or commercial) of property adjacent to and in close proximity to Martin's Landing, and of redevelopment decisions of empty commercial space in East Roswell. 

To that end, our attention is directed to the City of Roswell Unified Development Code [UDC] which is a complete rework of the current zoning regulations in order to bring them into conformance with the Comprehensive Plan 2030 goals as well as to modernize and streamline them.  Please visit the Roswell city government website for detailed information regarding this, www.roswell.gov.
