The Premises are rented and leased by Lessor to Lessee subject to the following terms and
conditions, to wit:

2. As rental for the Premises, Lessee agrees to pay Lessor the sum of One Dollar
($1.00).

3. (a) The Premises shall be used solely for the purpose of a public park, conservation
and recreation area, consistent with the provisions and restrictions of O.C.G.A. Sections 51-3-20
et. seq. for the purposes of (i) public sightseeing areas, picnicking areas, hiking areas, boating
areas and fishing areas, where the public may sightsee, picnic, hike, boat and fish in accordance
with the provisions of law (including but not limited to the rules and regulations of the Georgia
Department of Natural Resources), and (ii) education of the public on wildlife and environmental
matters, and for no other purpose whatsoever.

(b) Lessee agrees to obtain all proper permits for the operation of the Premises for the
purposes set forth in Paragraph 3(a) as well as the temporary uses permitted under Paragraph 3(c),
including, but not limited to, written authorization from the Department of Natural Resources and
the National Park Service. Lessee shall not impose any fees for admittance of vehicles to the
Premises or parking of vehicles on the Premises.

(c) Portions of the Premises are temporarily being used for a dog park and a river
outfitter operation and operated by Lessee. The gate to the dog park area shall be approved by
Lessor, shall not be locked (or, if locked, a combination lock will be used and Lessee will provide
Lessor with the combination), and Lessor will have access to the dog park at all times. Lessee
shall terminate the uses for a dog park and river outfitter operation on or before December 31,
2010. Lessee may request Lessor's consent to continued use as a dog park and river outfitter
operation beyond December 31, 2010 by written notice to Lessor no later than November 30,
2010. Lessor may grant or withhold such consent in Lessor's sole discretion. Lessor reserves the
right, in Lessor's sole discretion, to terminate the temporary use of the Premises as a dog park and
river outfitter operation by giving not less than fifteen (15) days' written notice to Lessee. Lessee
shall terminate such uses on or before the date set forth in such written notice from Lessee. All
structures associated with the dog park and river outfitter operation (signage, fencing, fence posts,
etc.) will be removed at the expense of Lessee on or before the date sixty (60) days after the date
Lessee is to terminate such uses in accordance with this Paragraph 3(c). Lessee shall repair all
damage caused by such removal, and restore the Premises to good order and condition as deemed
acceptable by Lessor.

(d) Lessor reserves the right at any time and from time to time to limit vehicle
occupancy at the Premises for concerns of safety and emergency access. At any time and from
time to time in the event of an emergency, Lessor may notify Lessee to immediately evacuate the
Premises, and Lessee shall evacuate the Premises immediately upon such notification. Lessor
shall have the right to prohibit Lessee's access to and use of the Premises at any time and from
time to time in connection with the exercise of Lessor's rights under Paragraph 30 of this lease.
Lessee shall not hold Lessor responsible for any loss of revenue or costs sustained by Lessee in the
exercise by Lessor of the rights identified or set forth in this Paragraph 3 or in Paragraph 30, and
Lessee waives any claim or cause of action against Lessor for damages by reason of interruption
of Lessee's uses of the Premises (including, without limitation, the dog park and river outfitter
operation) or loss of revenues therefrom because of the exercise by Lessor of such rights.

(e) Lessee agrees that the Premises may or may not be suitable for the use Lessee
desires to make of the Premises and that the Premises may not be in a safe or proper condition for
such use. LESSEE AGREES THAT LESSEE IS LEASING, AND ACCEPTS, THE PREMISES
GPC Morgan Falls 2010 Final.docx -2-
“AS IS”, “WHERE IS”, “WITH ALL FAULTS” AND LESSOR MAKES NO WARRANTIES,
EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO FITNESS, MERCHANTABILITY, USE OR CONDITION OF
THE PREMISES.

4. Lessee agrees not to abandon or vacate the Premises during the term of this lease
and agrees to continuously use the Premises solely for the purposes herein leased until the
expiration of the term hereof; provided, however, either party may terminate this lease upon thirty
(30) days written notice to the other party of such termination.

5. Neither this lease nor the interest of Lessee in this lease or in the Premises, or any
part thereof, shall be sold, assigned, sublet or otherwise transferred by Lessee, in whole or in part,
whether by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of Lessor, and any
such assignment or sub-lease without said consent shall be null and void.

6. Lessee, at Lessee‟s sole cost and expense, shall obtain any and all appropriate
municipal, county and state permits required for Lessee‟s use of the Premises and shall at all times
use, occupy and operate the Premises in compliance with all applicable city, county, state, federal
and local laws, ordinances, statutes, rules and regulations now in effect or hereafter enacted.
Lessee shall not place, use, store, spill or discharge any hazardous, toxic or dangerous substances
on the Premises. Lessee hereby indemnifies Lessor from any and all loss, cost, damage or expense
ever incurred by Lessor as a result of Lessee‟s breach of the foregoing covenants and agreements
of Lessee, and such indemnification shall survive the termination or expiration of the term of this
lease.

7. Lessee shall not make any alterations, modifications, additions or improvements


(including without limitation structures or buildings of any sort) or make any changes in, to or at
the Premises (collectively, “Alterations”) without first obtaining Lessor‟s written consent, which
consent Lessor may grant or withhold in Lessor‟s sole discretion. Any Alterations desired to be
made by Lessee or required to be made pursuant to any local, city, county, state or federal laws,
rules, ordinances, statutes or regulations will be done at Lessee‟s sole cost and expense. All
Alterations must be done in a good and workmanlike manner and in compliance with all
applicable laws.

Notice is hereby given that Lessor shall not be liable for the cost and expense of any labor,
services or materials furnished or to be furnished with respect to the Premises at or by the
direction of Lessee or anyone holding the Premises or any part thereof by, through or under Lessee
and that no laborer‟s, mechanic‟s or materialman‟s or other lien for any such labor, service or
materials shall attach to or affect the interest of Lessor in and to the Premises. Nothing contained
in this lease shall be deemed or construed in any way as constituting the consent or request of
Lessor, express or implied, by inference or otherwise, to any contractor, subcontractor, laborer or
materialman for the performance of any labor or the furnishing of any materials for any
improvements or repairs to or of the Premises or any part thereof, nor as giving Lessee any right,
power or authority on behalf of Lessor to contract for or permit the rendering of any services or
the furnishing of any materials that would, give rise to the filing of any lien against the Premises
or any part thereof.

8. Lessee, at Lessee‟s sole cost and expense, shall keep the Premises in good order
and repair (including without limitation any necessary replacements). Lessor gives to Lessee
exclusive control of the Premises and shall be under no obligation to inspect or repair the
Premises. Lessee further agrees, at Lessee‟s sole cost and expense, to care for the grounds
GPC Morgan Falls 2010 Final.docx -3-
constituting a portion of the Premises, including without limitation the mowing of grass, care of
shrubs and general landscaping. Lessee shall provide adequate restroom facilities and regularly
scheduled disposal of garbage and animal waste from the Premises. Lessee assumes all
responsibility for public safety, security, and law enforcement on the Premises.

9. Lessee shall not create or permit to be created or to remain, and, shall promptly
discharge, at its sole cost and expense, any lien, encumbrance or charge upon the Premises, or any
part thereof or upon Lessee‟s rights under this lease that arises from the use or occupancy of the
Premises by Lessee or by reason of any labor, service or material furnished or claimed to have
been furnished to or for the benefit of Lessee or by reason of any construction, repairs or
demolition by or at the direction of Lessee.

10. (a) So long as Lessee maintains the dog park, river outfitter or any commercial
activity whatsoever on the Premises (regardless of whether or not such activity is permitted under
this lease), Lessee shall acquire and maintain, at Lessee‟s sole cost and expense, commercial
general liability insurance covering the liability of Lessor and Lessee for bodily injury or death of
persons and for damage to or destruction of property occurring on the Premises and arising out of
the use or occupation of the Premises with a Combined Single Limit per occurrence of not less
than $5,000,000.00 for bodily injury liability and $500,000 for property damage liability (the
“Minimum Insurance”). The parties further acknowledge that upon written request from Lessor, at
any time and from time to time, the amounts of the Combined Single Limit of the Minimum
Insurance will be increased to the amount of self-insurance which Lessor maintains from time to
time during the term of this Lease. At such time as Lessee discontinues the dog park, river outfitter
and all other commercial activities whatsoever on the Premises other than those activities set forth
in Paragraph 3(a) above, Lessee shall be allowed to reduce the amounts of the Combined Single
Limit of the Minimum Insurance to the amounts which Lessee carries from time to time upon its
general liability insurance policies.

(b) All of the aforementioned insurance shall be placed with an insurance company
whose financial condition and policy forms are acceptable to Lessor, and so long as Lessee
maintains a dog park, river outfitter or any commercial activity whatsoever on the Premises shall
name Lessor as an additional insured party, and shall be endorsed to cover the liability assumed by
Lessee under the provisions of this lease. The endorsement shall be worded substantially as
follows:

“During the effective period of the policies referenced herein, it is agreed that this insurance
specifically covers liability assumed by the insured under the provisions of a certain agreement
entered into by the insured and the Georgia Power Company, dated March __, 2010.”

(c) Lessee shall further carry, at Lessee‟s sole cost and expense, all-risk hazard
insurance for the full replacement value of all improvements, less and except electrical
transmission and distribution facilities, located on the Premises. Such insurance shall be in the
name of Lessor and Lessee as their interests may appear.

(d) So long as Lessee maintains a dog park, river outfitter or any commercial activity
whatsoever on the Premises, each of the above required policies shall name Lessor as an additional
insured, and shall be endorsed with a provision whereby the insurance company shall notify
Lessor ten (10) days prior to the effective date of cancellation or material change in any of the said
policies. As evidence of this insurance and prior to Lessee‟s occupancy of the Premises, Lessee

GPC Morgan Falls 2010 Final.docx -4-


shall submit to Lessor a certificate providing the above coverage which certifies that the said
policies have been properly endorsed to meet all requirements set forth herein.

To the extent of the insurance required to be maintained by Lessee (but in no event in excess
of the fullest extent permitted under O.C.G.A. Section 13-8-2), Lessee hereby releases
Lessor, its agents and employees from any liability for damage to property or injury to
persons, regardless of the cause of such damage or injury. Except as provided in the sentence
immediately preceding this sentence, the waivers and indemnities in this lease shall not apply
to damages arising out of bodily injury to persons or damage to property caused by or
resulting from the sole negligence of Lessor, its agents or employees to the extent O.C.G.A.
Section 13-8-2 is applicable thereto. In no event shall the insurance requirements of this
paragraph be deemed to limit the liability or responsibility of Lessee in any manner.

11. Nothing in this lease is intended to diminish any protection afforded either Lessor or
Lessee by the provision of the Georgia Recreational Properties Act (O.C.G.A. Sections 51-3- 20
through 51-3-26) as from time to time amended. Lessor expressly intends and agrees that the
provisions of O.C.G.A. Sections 51-3-22 and 51-3-23 shall apply to the duties and liability of
Lessor. Lessee is a municipal corporation created under the laws of the state of Georgia and, by
provision of the Constitution of the State of Georgia has been granted sovereign immunity from
liability, unless the same is waived by action of the General Assembly of Georgia. Lessor and
Lessee acknowledge the entering of this Lease, and performance of Lessee‟s duties hereunder,
does not constitute a waiver of sovereign immunity of Lessee.

12. In the event Lessee shall default in the performance of any of its covenants
contained in this lease and such default shall continue for thirty (30) days after written notice
thereof has been given by Lessor to Lessee, then in such event, at Lessor‟s option:
(i) Lessor may terminate this lease by written notice to Lessee, in which event Lessee shall
immediately surrender the Premises, and if Lessee fails to do so, Lessor may, without prejudice to
any other right or remedy which Lessor may have, enter upon and take possession of the Premises
(by force, summary proceedings, ejectment or otherwise) and remove Lessee without being liable
for prosecution or any claim for damages therefor, and Lessee hereby waives its rights to any legal
proceedings in connection with such reentry.
(ii) Lessor may take any other action permitted by law.

13. Lessee assumes and shall pay any additional tax or license fee that may be
assessed against the Premises as a result of the use thereof by Lessee. Ad valorem taxes assessed
against the Premises shall be paid by Lessor. Ad valorem taxes assessed against any improvements
shall be paid by Lessee.

14. All notices, demands, requests, consents, and approvals desired, necessary,
required or permitted to be given pursuant to the terms of this lease shall be in writing and shall be
deemed to have been properly given if personally delivered or sent, postage prepaid, by first class
registered or certified United States mail, return receipt requested, addressed to each party hereto
at the following address:

Lessee: City Manager

Lessor: Georgia Power Company
Attention: Land Management Manager
BIN 10151
15th Floor

or at such other address in the United States as Lessee or Lessor may from time to time designate
by like notice. Any such notice, demand, request or other communication shall be considered
given or delivered, as the case may be, on the date of personal delivery or on the date of deposit in
the United States mail as provided above. Rejection or other refusal to accept or inability to
deliver because of changed address of which no notice was given shall be deemed to be receipt of
the notice, demand, request or other communication.

15. This lease shall create a landlord-tenant relationship between the parties hereto and
no estate shall pass out of Lessor. Lessee has only a usufruct, not subject to levy and sale, and not
assignable by Lessee except with Lessor‟s prior written consent.

16. No failure of Lessor to exercise any power given to Lessor hereunder, or to insist
upon strict compliance by Lessee with its obligations hereunder, and no custom or practice of the
parties at variance with the terms hereof, shall constitute a waiver of Lessor‟s right to demand
exact compliance with the terms hereof.

17. In the event any one or more of the provisions contained in this lease shall for any
reason be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such invalidity, illegality, or
unenforceability shall not affect any other provision hereof and this lease shall be continued as if
such invalid, illegal, or unenforceable provisions had never been contained herein.

18. This lease contains the entire agreement of the parties hereto and no
representations, inducements, promises or agreements, oral or otherwise, between the parties not
embodied herein shall be of any force or effect. This lease may not be modified except by an
amendment signed by both Lessor and Lessee.

19. Time is of the essence in this lease. This lease shall be governed by the laws of the
State of Georgia. No remedy conferred upon or reserved to Lessor in this lease, at law or in equity
is intended to be exclusive of any other available remedies, but each and every remedy shall be
cumulative and shall be in addition to every other remedy given in this lease or now or hereafter
existing in law or in equity.

20. Lessee‟s rights hereunder shall be subject to any mortgage, indenture or deed to
secure debt which is now, or may hereafter be, placed upon the Premises by Lessor.

21. Upon the termination or expiration of the term of this lease, Lessee shall vacate the
Premises and surrender the Premises to Lessor in as good order and condition as on the date
hereof, reasonable wear and tear excepted.

22. Lessee hereby agrees and covenants not to use, and will prohibit agents, employees
and contractors of Lessee from using, any tools, equipment or machinery within ten (10) feet of
Lessor‟s overhead conductors located on or in the vicinity of the Premises. Lessee agrees to
GPC Morgan Falls 2010 Final.docx -6-
comply with Official Code of Georgia Section 46-3-30 et seq. (HIGH VOLTAGE SAFETY
ACT), and the Rules and Regulations of the State of Georgia Section 300-3-7.01 et seq. Lessee
further agrees to notify any contractors that may be employed by Lessee of the existence of said
code sections and regulations, and to require that all work be performed in compliance with said
code sections and regulations by including same as a requirement in any contract let as a result of
said bid. Lessee further agrees and covenants to warn all persons whom Lessee knows or should
reasonably anticipate for any reason may conduct any activity whatsoever on or in the vicinity of
the Premises of the fact that such conductors are (a) electrical conductors, (b) energized, (c)
uninsulated, and (d) dangerous.

23. If the whole of the Premises, or such portion thereof as will make the Premises
unusable for the purposes herein leased, is condemned by any legally constituted authority, or
conveyed to such authority in lieu of such condemnation, then in either of said events, the term of
this lease shall end on the date when possession thereof is taken by the condemning authority, and
rental shall be accounted for between Lessor and Lessee as of such date. In the event any portion
of the Premises is taken by condemnation or a conveyance in lieu thereof (other than as set forth in
the preceding sentence), at Lessee‟s option, by written notice to Lessor within thirty (30) days
following such condemnation or conveyance in lieu thereof, Lessee shall either (i) terminate this
lease, or (ii) if the Premises may still be used for Lessee‟s intended use therefor, elect to continue
this lease and reduce the rent in proportion to the portion of the Premises so taken. In the event of
any such taking of all or any portion of the Premises or conveyance in lieu thereof, Lessor shall be
entitled to all compensation which may be paid or made in connection therewith, and Lessee shall
have no claim for the value of the unexpired leasehold, and hereby assigns to Lessor any right
Lessee may have to participate in any award paid on account of any such taking. Lessee shall,
however, be permitted to pursue a claim for improvements placed on the Premises at Lessee‟s sole
cost and expense, provided that such claim shall not reduce or diminish Lessor‟s award.

24. Upon termination or expiration of the term of this lease, Lessee shall remove all
improvements and personal property which it owns and has placed in or on the Premises;
provided, however, that Lessee repairs all damage to the Premises caused by such removal,
thereby restoring the Premises to as good order and condition as on the date hereof, reasonable
wear and tear excepted. All property of Lessee remaining in the Premises after expiration of the
term or earlier termination of this lease shall be deemed conclusively abandoned and may be
removed by Lessor and disposed of by Lessor or, at Lessor‟s option, retained by Lessor for
Lessor‟s own account, without compensation to Lessee, and Lessee shall reimburse Lessor for the
cost of removing and disposing of the same.

25. This lease may be simultaneously executed in several counterparts, and all such
counterparts shall constitute but one and the same instrument.

26. Lessee shall place no advertising signs upon the Premises. Any and all signs
placed on the Premises by Lessee shall be maintained in compliance with the applicable local,
city, county, state or federal statutes, ordinances, laws, rules and regulations governing such signs.
Lessee shall be responsible to Lessor for any damage caused by the installation, use or
maintenance of said signs, and Lessee agrees upon removal of said signs to repair all damage
incident to such removal.

Lessee shall post signs throughout the Premises that ingress or egress from the river for any
activity is to occur at the Department of Natural Resources boat ramp. Lessee shall post signs at
the boat ramp stating, “Caution: Water Level Subject To Rise Without Warning”. Lessee shall be
GPC Morgan Falls 2010 Final.docx -7-
responsible for traffic control and enforcement on the Premises, including without limitation the
posting of “No Parking” signs along Morgan Falls Road.

27. In the event Lessee remains in possession of the Premises after termination or
expiration of the term of this lease, without any express agreement of the parties, Lessee shall be a
tenant at sufferance, and otherwise upon the terms and conditions set forth in this lease. In the
event Lessee remains in possession of the Premises after termination or expiration of the term of
this lease, with Lessor‟s consent, then, except as expressly otherwise provided in Lessor‟s consent,
Lessee shall be a tenant at sufferance, and the other terms and conditions set forth in this lease
shall apply.

RESOLUTION NO. 2010-03-XX

STATE OF GEORGIA
COUNTY OF FULTON

A RESOLUTION IN OPPOSITION TO GEORGIA HOUSE BILL HB 480 CURRENTLY


PENDING IN THE GEORGIA LEGISLATURE

WHEREAS, proposed House Bill 480 (HB 480), sponsored by Representative Geisinger,
currently being considered by the Georgia Legislature, would eliminate the
sales and ad valorem taxes on motor vehicles titled in Georgia and, instead,
creates a 6.75% title fee; and

WHEREAS, the title fee would be collected on a county basis and a title of the vehicle from
sale in a particular county will be assigned to such county and all local share of
the title fee would stay in that county; and

WHEREAS, Mayor and City Council believe that this elimination of the sales and ad
valorem motor vehicle taxes would significantly impair anticipated revenue of
local governments and impair such government’s provision of services for the
health, safety and welfare of its citizens; and

WHEREAS, the apportionment of title fees to the county wherein the vehicle is titled and
sold would create an inequality amongst local jurisdictions and may not,
necessarily, correspond to the use of the municipal, county and state roads and
expense of their maintenance; and

WHEREAS, municipalities in Fulton County currently are responsible for maintenance of


most of the roadways in Fulton County and thus should receive a proportionate
share of the title fees, as it is not a fair apportionment to allow more than half
of the title fees to be given to the County for maintenance of a very small
number of roadways and streets; and

WHEREAS, though removing sales and ad valorem automobile taxes, HB 480 does not
provide the necessary factual basis or methodology to properly replace these
important local government revenue sources to appropriately keep each local
government whole and able to provide the necessary services to its citizens.

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED by the Mayor and Council of the City of Sandy Springs
that the Mayor and Council, for the reasons stated above, hereby express their opposition on behalf of
the City of Sandy Springs for House Bill 480 (HB 480) and hereby authorize the City Manager to relay
said opposition to Representative Geisinger, as well as the City’s elected representative delegation to
the Georgia Legislature.

STATE OF GEORGIA
COUNTY OF FULTON

A RESOLUTION IN OPPOSITION TO GEORGIA HOUSE RESOLUTION HR 1


CURRENTLY PENDING IN THE GEORGIA LEGISLATURE

WHEREAS, House Resolution 1 (HR 1), sponsored by Representative Lindsey, currently


being considered by the Georgia Legislature, is a proposed amendment to the
Georgia Constitution which would cap annual assessment of property tax
increases of property at 3 percent or the rate of the Consumer Price Index,
whichever is less, with the exception of improvements to property or after sale
of property, which would be assessed at fair market value; and

WHEREAS, Mayor and Council of the City of Sandy Springs believe that this artificial
assessment cap would create an inequity in property taxes wherein owners of
similar properties would be assessed a markedly different property tax
depending on whether the property has been recently sold; and

WHEREAS, capping the assessment on commercial properties would likely lead to the
increase in real estate trusts and tax shelters to shield legal transfer of
properties for tax purposes, which would eventually lead to the inequity of
higher property taxes for residential rather than commercial properties; and

WHEREAS, this inequitable assessment cap would be a disincentive for the purchase of
homes and would depress an already stagnating housing market and prolong
the current recession; and

WHEREAS, this assessment cap would decrease flexibility in the revenue sources of local
governments as the consequences of this cap would decrease the City’s main
source of revenue, property taxes, and, in order to continue provision of
necessary services, this assessment may require some local governments to
raise millage rates and contribute to the inequitably higher property taxes
assessed against new home and business owners; and

WHEREAS, in newly established municipalities such as Sandy Springs, Milton, and Sandy
Springs that are already less flexible in their revenue sources due to existing
millage rate caps, this assessment cap would impair these cities’ ability to have
immediate control over their anticipated revenue and would create an
insurmountable circumstance where they could not provide many of the basic
services while still maintaining the requisite balanced budget.

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED by the Mayor and Council of the City of Sandy Springs
that the Mayor and Council, for the reasons stated above, hereby express their opposition on behalf of
the City of Sandy Springs for House Resolution 1 (HR 1) and hereby authorize the City Manager to
relay said opposition to Representative Lindsey, as well as the City’s elected representative delegation
to the Georgia Legislature.

would require the City of Sandy Springs and all other municipalities to collect
certain information for any business within the jurisdiction of such
municipality that requires an occupation tax or regulatory fee, and provide that
collected information to the DOR; and

positive steps will be taken to make sure that the appropriate sales taxes and
collected by applicable businesses and properly tendered to the Department of
Revenue; and

WHEREAS, HB 1093 and HB 1137 will require the Department of Revenue to compare
said information provided by the municipalities to its records, as well as report
any differences in the information to the affected municipality; and

WHEREAS, HB 1093 and HB 1137 will help ensure that all persons who are responsible for
payment of sales taxes do so fairly in order to help shoulder the burden of the
taxpaying businesses and individuals who have been properly compliant with
state law and operating their business properly.

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED by the Mayor and Council of the City of Sandy Springs
that the Mayor and Council hereby express their support on behalf of the City of Sandy Springs for the
2010 Georgia Legislative Session Bills HB 1093 and HB 1137 and hereby authorize the City Manager
to relay said support to Representatives Knight and Porter, as well as the City’s elected representative

SITE PLAN ANALYSIS


The site plan submitted shows three (3) existing outparcels, on the west side of the property, having
restaurants currently operating on them. The site plan also shows the main parcel, consisting of 27.81 acres,
having an existing shopping center. The proposed 3,700 square foot fast food restaurant would be located
over a detention area located at the south east corner of the subject property. The Wendy’s property would
not become an additional outparcel, but would become part of the existing shopping center. And the
aforementioned open detention area would be made into an underground detention facility.

PARKING AND TRAFFIC IMPACT ANALYSIS


Section 18.2.1, Basic Off-street Parking Requirements, requires a minimum amount of parking spaces for the
following uses: Retail Establishments, Restaurants, and Entertainment/Recreational. Based on the overall
subject property and the aforementioned uses, including the proposed Wendy’s, the applicant (per the site
plan) has provided 1,968 off-street parking spaces where 1,878 (with 15% MARTA reduction) off-street parking
spaces are required.

NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

• Current total required parking (per City’s shared parking): 2172 – 15% MARTA reduction = 1847

• Current total existing parking = 1971

• With new Wendy’s, total required parking (per City’s shared parking): 2209 – 15% MARTA reduction
= 1878

• Total provided parking with new Wendy’s = 1968 (30 of which serve new Wendy’s)

• With MARTA reduction, there are 90 spaces over the required amount.

LANDSCAPE PLAN ANALYSIS


The site plan for the overall project indicates there would be 148,842 S.F. (11.84%) of Landscaped Area. The
subject property in an area designated by the 2027 Comprehensive Future Land Use Map as Living-Working
Regional (LWR), Node 6: PCID (Perimeter Community Improvement District – Live Work Regional only).
The Comprehensive Plan recommends an excess of 20% Open and Green Space. 15% of this recommendation
must be green space. The overall project does not meet this recommendation; however, Staff notes the
proposed Wendy’s would be a part of an existing shopping center and would be constructed over an existing
detention area that does not technically qualify as either Open or Green Space.
ENVIRONMENTAL SITE ANALYSIS
The Environmental Site Analysis Report is sufficient and satisfies the requirements of the Sandy Springs
Zoning Ordinance. The reporting on all items of the analysis stated either positive, minimal, or no
environmental issues.

ZONING IMPACT ANALYSIS
Per Article 28.4.1, Zoning Impact Analysis by the Planning Commission and the Department, the staff shall make a
written record of its investigation and recommendation on each rezoning petition with respect to the
following factors:

A. Whether the zoning proposal will permit a use that is suitable in view of the use and development of adjacent and
nearby property.
Finding: The staff is of the opinion that the proposed use is suitable in view of the use and development
of adjacent and nearby property. The surrounding area consists of multi-family developments
to the north, multi-family/office/hotel developments to the east, MARTA/retail/office
developments to the south, and an office development to the west. The proposal allows for a
proper transition between these areas.
B. Whether the zoning proposal will adversely affect the existing use or usability of adjacent or nearby property.
Finding: The staff is of the opinion that the proposal will not have an adverse impact on the use or
usability of adjacent or nearby property.

C. Whether the property to be affected by the zoning proposal may have reasonable economic use as currently zoned.

Finding: The staff is of the opinion that the subject property has a reasonable economic use as currently
zoned.

D. Whether the zoning proposal will result in a use which will or could cause an excessive burdensome use of existing
streets, transportation facilities, utilities, or schools.

Finding: The staff is of the opinion that the proposal will not result in a use which will cause an
excessive or burdensome use of the existing infrastructure.

E. Whether the zoning proposal is in conformity with the policies and intent of the land use plan.
Finding: The staff is of the opinion that the proposed use is generally consistent with the
Future Land Use Map, which designates the property as Live Work Regional (LWR). The LWR
land use designation recommends a density of over 25,000 square feet per acre for commercial
and office uses plus over 20 residential units per acre. The overall project, with the inclusion of
the proposed Arby’s, would have a commercial density of 12,002 square feet per acre.
Therefore, the overall project does not meet this recommendation; however, Staff notes the
proposed Arby’s would be a part of an existing shopping center and, by its construction,
would actually add to the density of the overall site. The complete project lends itself to the
overall intent of the LWR designated areas that are intended for high density residential and
mixed land uses along major transportation corridors and/or rail transit stations intended to
serve larger areas and to provide larger commercial uses with a significant employment
concentration. The Comprehensive Plan recommends an excess of 20% Open and Green Space.
15% of this recommendation must be green space. The overall project does not meet this
recommendation; however, Staff notes the proposed Arby’s would be a part of an existing
shopping center and would be constructed over an existing detention area that does not
technically qualify as either Open or Green Space. The subject site is located in Living Working
Node 6, Perimeter Community Improvement District (PCID), which is made up of high density
residential, regional office, and commercial developments.

F. Whether there are other existing or changing conditions affecting the use and development of the property which give
supporting grounds for either approval or disapproval of the zoning proposal.
Prepared by the City of Sandy Springs Department of Community Development for the Mayor and City Council Hearing on March 16, 2010

DT 3.1.10 Page 15 of 19
RZ09-006
Finding: The staff is of the opinion that there are no existing or changing conditions affecting the use
and development of the property, which give supporting grounds for approval or denial of the
applicant’s proposal.

G. Whether the zoning proposal will permit a use which can be considered environmentally adverse to the natural
resources, environment and citizens of Sandy Springs.

Finding: The staff is of the opinion that the proposal will not permit a use which could be considered
environmentally adverse to the natural resources, environment, or citizens of Sandy Springs.

VARIANCE CONSIDERATIONS
The applicant is requesting two (2) concurrent variances as follows:

1. Variance from Section 4.13.C. of the Zoning Ordinance to allow an existing outparcel abutting a public
right-of-way to have less than 200 feet of frontage on that public right-of-way.

The applicant states this request was previously approved under Z93-066/VC93-103 and the existing
Chick-Fil-A outparcel currently has less than the required 200 feet of frontage abutting a public right-
of-way (Mount Vernon Highway).

The staff is of the opinion relief from this requirement is in harmony with the intent of the Zoning Ordinance
and there is a hardship due to the physical characteristics of the subject property because this request was
previously approved under Z93-066/VC93-103 and the existing Chick-Fil-A outparcel currently has less than
the required 200 feet of frontage abutting a public right-of-way (Mount Vernon Highway). Therefore, based on
these reasons, the staff recommends APPROVAL of this concurrent variance request.

2. Variance from Article 33, Section 26, Subsection F(2) of the Zoning Ordinance to allow a third wall
sign.

The applicant has indicated this variance will not result in any harm to the health and safety of the
general public. The applicant has indicated that this variance is in harmony with the area and in
harmony with the general purpose and intent of the Zoning Ordinance.

The staff is of the opinion the variance request is in harmony with the intent of the Zoning Ordinance and the
proposal will not pose a detriment to the public because the proposed sign is facing internal to the overall
shopping center. Therefore, based on these reasons, the staff recommends APPROVAL of the variance to allow
a third wall sign.

SITE PLAN ANALYSIS

The site plan submitted shows an existing one-story split level building with 4,011 square feet. The applicant
is keeping the building as is without any external changes.

PARKING AND TRAFFIC IMPACT ANALYSIS


Section 18.2.1, Basic Off-street Parking Requirements, requires a minimum amount of parking spaces (4 per 1,000
square feet) for the following uses: Medical Office and Related Facilities. Based on the overall project and the
aforementioned uses, the owner/developer has or will provide the required off-street parking and has been
considered under previously approved Sandy Springs permits. The proposed use requires 16 parking spaces
and 23 parking spaces are provided.
LANDSCAPE PLAN ANALYSIS
The associated existing parking lot is to remain. The required landscape islands and the required landscaping
for the overall project has been considered under previously approved Sandy Springs permits. The existing
zoning conditions of zoning case Z83-0007 require a 25 foot wide natural undisturbed buffer, replanted where
sparsely vegetated, adjacent to the west property line and a minimum 7 foot wide landscape strip adjacent to
the north property line.
ENVIRONMENTAL SITE ANALYSIS
The Environmental Site Analysis Report is sufficient and satisfies the requirements of the Sandy Springs
Zoning Ordinance. The site does not contain any known wetlands, streams, sensitive plants and/or protected
animal species, or archaeological/historical sites. The site is not located within a floodplain. Moreover, the site
is to remain as is. Therefore, the project’s impact to the environment is minimal.

ZONING IMPACT ANALYSIS


Per Article 28.4.1, Zoning Impact Analysis by the Planning Commission and the Department, the staff shall make a
written record of its investigation and recommendation on each rezoning petition with respect to the
following factors:

A. Whether the zoning proposal will permit a use that is suitable in view of the use and development of adjacent and
nearby property.

Finding: The surrounding area consists of a fast food restaurant to the east, general commercial
development to the south, and apartments to the north and west. The existing conditions of
the lot allow for a proper transition between these areas. The staff is of the opinion that the
proposed use is suitable in view of the use and development of adjacent and nearby property.

B. Whether the zoning proposal will adversely affect the existing use or usability of adjacent or nearby property.

Finding: The staff is of the opinion that the proposal will not have an adverse impact on the use or
usability of adjacent or nearby property.

C. Whether the property to be affected by the zoning proposal may have reasonable economic use as currently zoned.

Prepared by the City of Sandy Springs Department of Community Development for the Mayor and City Council Hearing on March 16, 2010

CG 2.26.10 Page 9 of 13
RZ09-011

Finding: The staff is of the opinion that the subject property has a reasonable economic use as currently
zoned.

D. Whether the zoning proposal will result in a use which will or could cause an excessive burdensome use of existing
streets, transportation facilities, utilities, or schools.

Finding: The staff is of the opinion that the proposal will not result in a use which will cause an
excessive or burdensome use of the existing infrastructure.

E. Whether the zoning proposal is in conformity with the policies and intent of the land use plan.
Finding: The staff is of the opinion that the proposed use is consistent with the Future Land Use
Map, which designates the property as Living-Working Community (LWC). The applicant
is proposing to allow for a use consistent with C-1 zoning. The existing density for the
subject parcel is 9,550 square feet per acre. The LWC land use designation recommends: a
density of up to 25,000 square feet per acre for commercial and office uses, a 100,000 square
foot/tenant limitation, and a 15 % minimum of Open and Green Space Components (10%
must be G.S. and 5% may be O.S.). The proposal lends itself to the overall intent of the LWC
designated areas that are intended for medium density mixed land uses (residential and
commercial) intended to serve a group of adjacent neighborhoods and to be compatible
with low and medium density residential neighborhoods . The subject site is located in
Living Working Community Node 9: Roswell Road and Vernon Woods Drive (Uptown).
The area is characterized by narrow lots with frontage on Roswell; therefore, the assemblage
of multiple properties is not necessarily encouraged in this area; however, the elimination of
individual curb cuts and increased interparcel access is supported. In addition, the area
should incorporate a mix of less dense office and residential uses; however, it is not
necessary to develop both office and residential uses on a single parcel. The guidelines and
policies of Node 9 recommend: up to 20 residential units per acre, commercial and office
densities should be 25,000 square feet per acre or less and there should be a maximum
building height of four (4) stories. At least 10% of a site shall be maintained as open space.
Moreover, an ability to achieve maximum densities should be supported by the elimination
of consolidate of curb cuts, providing interparcel access, and meeting or exceeding
recommended open space.

F. Whether there are other existing or changing conditions affecting the use and development of the property which give
supporting grounds for either approval or disapproval of the zoning proposal.

Finding: The staff is of the opinion that there are no existing or changing conditions affecting the use of
the property, which give supporting grounds for approval or denial of the applicant’s
proposal.
G. Whether the zoning proposal will permit a use which can be considered environmentally adverse to the natural
resources, environment and citizens of Sandy Springs.

Finding: The staff is of the opinion that the proposal will not permit a use which could be considered
environmentally adverse to the natural resources, environment, or citizens of Sandy Springs.

CONCLUSION TO FINDINGS
It is the opinion of the staff that the petition is consistent with the Future Land Use Map and the policies of
the Comprehensive Plan. Therefore, based on these reasons, the staff recommends APPROVAL
CONDITIONAL of the request to rezone the subject property from C-1 (Community Business District)
conditional to C-1 (Community Business District) to allow for clinic in the existing building.

BACKGROUND
The subject property is located approximately 800 feet from the intersection of Hope Road
and Roswell Road, on the west side of Hope Road. The property is zoned O-I (Office and
Institutional District) conditional under zoning case Z86-107. The property is currently
developed with an office building.

Under Z86-107, the subject property is conditioned to the Office and accessory uses at a
maximum density of 15,385 square feet of gross floor area per acre zoned or a total gross floor
area of 40,000 square feet, whichever is less.

Please note the following:

Existing

• The total heated s.f. of the existing office is 20,732.

• There is 11,011 s.f. of unheated area in the basement that currently contains 13 parking
spaces.

• The total amount of existing parking spaces is 65 (52 un-covered parking spaces plus
13 spaces in the basement).

• 20,732 s.f. of office parked at 3 spaces/1000 s.f. requires 62 spaces.

Proposed
• Convert the basement to heated space for a grand total of 31,743 s.f. of heated space.
This conversion would eliminate the 13 parking spaces in the basement.

• The proposed parking would be as follows: 52 existing un-covered parking spaces, 20


un-striped spaces at the back of the building, and 2 additional un-striped spaces in
front of the garage door. The total amount of proposed parking spaces is 74.

ZONING IMPACT ANALYSIS


Per Article 28.4.1, Zoning Impact Analysis by the Planning Commission and the Department, the staff shall make a
written record of its investigation and recommendation on each rezoning petition with respect to the
following factors:

A. Whether the zoning proposal will permit a use that is suitable in view of the use and development of adjacent and
nearby property.

Finding: The staff is of the opinion that the proposed use is suitable in view of the use and development
of adjacent and nearby property. The surrounding area consists of a single-family subdivision
to the north, townhomes to the east, commercial development to the south, and commercial
developments to the west. The proposal allows for a proper transition between these areas.

B. Whether the zoning proposal will adversely affect the existing use or usability of adjacent or nearby property.

Finding: The staff is of the opinion that the proposal will not have an adverse impact on the use or
usability of adjacent or nearby property.

C. Whether the property to be affected by the zoning proposal may have reasonable economic use as currently zoned.

Finding: The staff is of the opinion that the subject property has a reasonable economic use as currently
zoned.

D. Whether the zoning proposal will result in a use which will or could cause an excessive burdensome use of existing
streets, transportation facilities, utilities, or schools.

Finding: The staff is of the opinion that the proposal will not result in a use which will cause an
excessive or burdensome use of the existing infrastructure.

DT 3.1.10 Page 12 of 20
RZ09-012/CV09-020

E. Whether the zoning proposal is in conformity with the policies and intent of the land use plan.
Finding: The staff is of the opinion that the proposed use is consistent with the Future Land Use Map,
which designates the property as Living-Working Neighborhood (LWN). The applicant is
proposing to allow for a use consistent with O-I zoning. The site plan provided by the
applicant indicates the proposed density for the subject parcel is 12,531.78 square feet per acre
and indicates the total Open Space provided as follows:

• 21,494 square feet of Green Space (19.48 %)


• 27,561 square feet of perimeter setbacks and landscape strips (24.98 %)
• 12,151 square feet of sidewalk and landscape islands (11.01 %)

The subject site is located in Living Working Node 14: Roswell Road and Dunwoody Place
Intersection. The vision, guidelines, and policies of Node 14 is as follows:

• The majority of the existing development in the area is characterized by largely


disjointed commercial and multi family residential development.
• A mix of commercial, office and residential uses at a substantial density should be
allowed to encourage redevelopment and to support the market of the northern portion
of the City.
• Consolidation of properties and the collective redevelopment of multiple properties
should be encouraged in the area to perpetuate economic vitality, increased green
space, and an improved transportation system.
• Residential density should be above 20 units per acre. Commercial and office densities
should be above 25,000 square feet per acre. Building heights should be limited to 15
stories in this area. At least 30% of a site shall be maintained as open space. To further
define this requirement, a minimum of 25% shall be green space, with the remaining
5% designated as open or green space.
• Automobile oriented business shall be discouraged in this area.
• An ability to achieve maximum densities should be supported by the assemblage of
smaller properties, elimination or consolidation of curb cuts, providing interparcel
access, and meeting or exceeding recommended open and green space standards.

The LWN land use designation recommends: a 30,000 square foot/tenant limitation. The
proposal lends itself to the overall intent of the LWN designated areas that are intended for
lower density mixed land uses (residential and commercial) intended to serve a group of
adjacent neighborhoods and to be compatible with lower density residential neighborhoods .

F. Whether there are other existing or changing conditions affecting the use and development of the property which give
supporting grounds for either approval or disapproval of the zoning proposal.

Finding: The staff is of the opinion that there are no existing or changing conditions affecting the use
and development of the property, which give supporting grounds for approval or denial of the
applicant’s proposal.

G. Whether the zoning proposal will permit a use which can be considered environmentally adverse to the natural
resources, environment and citizens of Sandy Springs.

Finding: The staff is of the opinion that the proposal will not permit a use which could be considered
environmentally adverse to the natural resources, environment, or citizens of Sandy Springs.

VARIANCE CONSIDERATIONS

only one has to be proven:

A. Relief, if granted, would be in harmony with, or, could be made to be in harmony with, the general purpose and
intent of the Zoning Ordinance; or,
B. The application of the particular provision of the Zoning Ordinance to a particular piece of property, due to
extraordinary and exceptional conditions pertaining to that property because of its size, shape, or topography,
would create an unnecessary hardship for the owner while causing no detriment to the public; or,
C. Conditions resulting from existing foliage or structures bring about a hardship whereby a sign meeting minimum
letter size, square footage and height requirements cannot be read from an adjoining public road.

vegetation would serve the intent of the required parking lot shade trees. Therefore, based on these reasons, the
staff recommends APPROVAL of the variance to delete the parking lot landscaping requirements.

7. Variance from the Tree Conservation Ordinance, Administrative Standards, & Best Management
Practices - Landscape Strips, Buffers, and Parking (F.1) to relieve the requirement of planting a large
shade tree every 6 parking spaces for all new parking lots.

The applicant has indicated this variance will not result in any harm to the health and safety of the
general public and that application of the requirement would place a hardship on the applicant. The
applicant has indicated that this variance is in harmony with the area and in harmony with the general
purpose and intent of the Zoning Ordinance.

8. Variance from Section 109-225.a 1 and 2 of the Stream Buffer Protection Ordinance to reduce the
seventy-five (75) foot buffer and setback requirements (50 foot undisturbed natural buffer and 25 foot
impervious surface setback) to a minimum of five (5) feet +/- to the extent necessary for the existing
structure(s) to comply in accordance with the site plan received by the Department of Community
Development on December 4, 2009.

The applicant has indicated this variance will not result in any harm to the health and safety of the
general public and that application of the requirement would place a hardship on the applicant. The
applicant has indicated that this variance is in harmony with the area and in harmony with the general
purpose and intent of the Zoning Ordinance.

The staff is of the opinion the variance request is in harmony with the intent of the Zoning Ordinance and the
proposal will not pose a detriment to the public because no land disturbance is proposed that would negatively
impact the stream, and the structure(s) that encroach are existing. The drainage on the subject property
primarily goes through two existing flumes and into a detention/retention area located at the northern corner of
the property. Therefore, based on these reasons, the staff recommends APPROVAL of the variance to reduce the
seventy-five (75) foot buffer and setback requirements (50 foot undisturbed natural buffer and 25 foot impervious
surface setback) to a minimum of five (5) feet +/- to the extent necessary for the existing structure(s) to comply in
accordance with the site plan received by the Department of Community Development on December 4, 2009.

9. Variance from Section 18.2.1 of the Zoning Ordinance to reduce the required parking from 94 spaces to
74 spaces.

The applicant has indicated this variance will not result in any harm to the health and safety of the
general public and that application of the requirement would place a hardship on the applicant. The

applicant has indicated that this variance is in harmony with the area and in harmony with the general
purpose and intent of the Zoning Ordinance.

The staff is of the opinion the variance request is in harmony with the intent of the Zoning Ordinance and the
proposal will not pose a detriment to the public because the applicant intends to utilize the quantity of parking
spaces that currently serve the subject property and the proposed uses, as described, would not create a negative
parking situation and would not be more burdensome than how the current parking serves the existing office use.
Therefore, based on these reasons, the staff recommends APPROVAL of the variance to reduce the required
parking from 94 spaces to 74 spaces.

CONCLUSION TO FINDINGS

It is the opinion of the staff that the proposal is in conformity with the intent of the Comprehensive Plan
Policies and the Future Land Use Map, as the proposal involves a use and density that is consistent with
abutting and nearby properties. Therefore, based on these reasons, the staff recommends APPROVAL

variances numbered 1 through 9.

ITEM: Acceptance of Right of Way and Easement Rights for the Lake Forrest Drive Sidewalk
and Intersection Improvement Project

Public Works Department’s Recommendation:

Staff recommends that the Mayor and City Council accept the Right of Way and Easement
Acquisitions for the project on Lake Forrest Drive for sidewalk and intersection improvements.
The properties are located in Land Lots 89, 90, 123 and 124 of the 17th District, Fulton County,
Georgia. The Acquisition totals are 7,012.52 Square Feet of Permanent Construction Easement
and 5,312.87 Square Feet of Right of Way were needed. The total cost for the acquisition of
these rights was $49,900.

Background:

This project includes construction sidewalks and associated retaining walls, driveway tie-ins and
curbing primarily on the west side of Lake Forrest Drive from Northwood Drive to Hammond
Drive. It also includes the addition of a north bound turn lane and intersection improvement at
the corner of Lake Forrest and Hammond and the construction of sidewalk along Hammond
Drive to the entrance of the Forrest Place community. The project duration is estimated at 120
days from the issuance of Notice to Proceed.

Discussion:

The attached exhibits include the location and area of executed right of way and easements, as
well as right of way deeds and plats showing the location of the properties. This work is being
done with as little inconvenience to the property owner as possible. The amount of the last
compensation payment to each property owner has been derived from an appraisal prepared by
a local GDOT Certified appraiser and is being offered to the property owners for the
inconvenience and disturbance of the right to quiet use of their property.

Alternatives:

The Council could decide not to accept the rights of way and easements needed to construct
the intersection improvements and sidewalk, and the project not constructed.
Financial Impact:

The total cost to the City for acquisition is $49,900, and broken out as follows:

• Parcels 1 & 2 …Atlanta Board of Realtors …Driveway Easements...Donated


• Parcel 3 …Ridgemere Condo HOA…1884.46 SF of Right of Way and 4850.20 SF of
