Mapping the Village Potential

It’s been 11 years since the DeKalb County commissioners unanimously approved the Emory Village Alliance’s zoning overlay and design guidelines, thus setting a new direction for Emory Village – one that would create a community commercial center that is economically viable and in the best long-term interests of Druid Hills residents, Emory Village and Emory University.

The map shows the Emory Village Regulating Plan from 2007 that identifies the boundary limits of the Emory Village Overlay District. It also shows historic structures and allowed building heights for new development or renovation projects.  One of the unique elements is the potential for a path along Peavine Creek.
