Planning and Zoning

The Planning and Zoning Division implements the Comprehensive Plan and the Zoning Ordinance. The Comprehensive Plan sets the vision, mission, policies, and goals for the city. It is the guide that current and future administrations will use for the future development and growth of Stonecrest. The DeKalb County Comprehensive Plan has been temporarily adopted with a few changes to guide the city until the Stonecrest Mayor, Council and staff can develop a separate plan. The Comprehensive Plan can be viewed here
