Understanding the Petitioning ProcessĀ 
When proposed development in Sandy Springs falls outside of approved land uses, developers petition the City. There are two petitioning processes in Sandy Springs:

Petitioning Process for Rezonings, Zoning Modifications and Use Permits
Developers are required to hold community meetings before and after they file a petition. After the community meetings are held, petitions for rezonings, zoning modifications, use permits, and any concurrent variances, as well as changes to ordinances go before the Planning Commission. A final ruling on the petition is made by the Mayor and City Council during a regularly scheduled Mayor and City Council Meeting.

Petitioning Process for Variances and Zoning Ordinance Modifications
Once a developer submits a variance, or zoning ordinance modification application, their petition is heard by the Board of Appeals during the next regularly scheduled meeting. If the variance is part of a rezoning, zoning modification or use permit, it will instead follow that petitioning process.
