Norcross City Council Agenda: Filming Downtown, Noise Control, Thrasher Street Homes
A film crew wants to shoot a TV series pilot in Norcross, and the city may get a new Noise Control Ordinance. The Norcross City Council will discuss the items in its meeting Monday evening.
The Norcross City Council will meet in city hall Monday evening for three meetings: the city council meeting, the regular work session and a special called meeting.
In addition to the regular work session before the city council meeting, the councilmen will have a special called meeting to review and discuss the permit application for a production company that wants to film in Norcross.
FTP Productions is proposing to shoot the pilot for a new ABC TV series called "The Returned" in downtown Norcross this month. According to the application submitted by the company, the show is a supernatural drama about "a child who went missing 30 years prior [and] shows up in a small village in China. He is 'returned' to his small mid-America town having not aged at all."
For the regular city council meeting, the following items are on the agenda:
-New homes on Thrasher Street revision: In December, the council passed a rezoning case so that homes could be built at 152 Thrasher Street. The concept plan for the homes have been changed and updated to work better with the existing topography by saving more trees and meeting the safety concerns of the fire department. The council will consider approving the new concept plan Monday.
-Noise Control Ordinance Revision: The proposed ordinance offers specific details on noise control issues and how city officials should determine them. The revision was tabled in early February so that more information on decibels and where the decibels should be measured (if it's at the site of the noise, at the edge of the property or at the site of the complaint) can be clarified and considered before a motion was made.
-Revision of oversized signs: The amendment suggests that the use of billboards and oversized signs for M1 (light industrial) zones and businesses should no longer require a special use permit.
-The approval of the 2012 zoning map of the city of Norcross
The special called meeting and regular work session are scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Monday, March 4, in the second floor conference room of Norcross City Hall. The regular city council meeting will follow at 7 p.m. in the council chambers below.
