Hello everyone. I am not a planner, but I am tired of googling and not getting any real results, maybe I am not typing in the correct term(s)?
I am a business person and I have purchased some commercial property in Atlanta, GA (DeKalb County). The property is zoned light industrial and I have already been approved to place a used car dealership there.
DeKalb County is requiring a site plan before they will grant me a business licence. So this is where is hoping someone here will be able to assist me? DeKalb county has fired tons employees so trying to get help from them is a joke.
The property is 1.65 acres. There was a house on the property, but a fire completely destroyed it. I plan on placing a modular sales office on the property, parking spaces, handicap ramp leading from the parking spaces to the sales office, a fence, and a sign. As of right now, the land is a blank slate - so I pretty much can lay out the property to my liking (withing guidelines) of course.
I have to provide a drawing / site plan for DeKalb County to review and approve before I can move forward. They provided me with a sample plan and it looks fairly straightforward as to what they need. I can upload the sample plan if anyone would like to see it?
Is there anyone here in GA, preferrably DeKalb County and/or Atlanta that can contract to handle this? If not, can anyone recommend any firms that will be knowledgeable in this department that I can hire? I am trying to be "by the book" and I just want to do everything right the first time. There are so many rules & applications regarding signage, fencing, setbacks, landscaping, handicap accessability... I just don't want to get something wrong.
Thank you guys & gals for taking the time to read this and I hope I posted it in the right section?
