East Point City Council on Monday, November 20 approved rezoning for the Eco Cottages at East Point project.
With the rezoning approvals, the tiny house community is moving forward.
The property had to be rezoned from R-1A (Urban Residential) to CUP (Community Unit Plan), together with a 3-part concurrent variance.
“We are excited to announce the rezoning was approved by East Point City Council this evening,” according to a post on the project’s Facebook page.
“Thank you to all of the neighbors, City staff and officials and everyone else who has supported the project, and for your perseverance and patience.”
The tiny house community’s site plan is being reworked to include the City of East Point’s conditions of approvals, according to the project’s website.
Next comes the permitting process which is expected to take 60 to 90 days.
Pricing for the tiny homes—which range in size from 500 square feet (1 or 2 bedroom/2 baths) to 1000 square feet (2 or 3 bedroom/ 2.5 baths.)—will be available in 2018.
All of the homes will be on permanent foundations and will be connected to the sewer, water and electrical systems of the community.
Eco Cottages at East Point was first uncovered in August 2016 and was met with great fanfare.
Home-builder Jim Chapman Jr. is behind the transformation of the 7.69-acre parcel in Historic Downtown East Point into a 40-house community.
