The Georgia Supreme Court today let stand a decision by the Court of Appeals that the citizens of Douglasville could lawfully withstand the construction of a rock crushing plant in their neighborhood. In a unanimous Order, the Supreme Court declined to undertake further review.
In Boyd v. City of Douglasville, the project owner proposed constructing an industrial plant immediately across the street from a residential neighborhood and adjacent to property that did not allow such high impact use. The Superior Court had ruled that the City Council had wrongfully denied the application, but the Court of Appeals disagreed saying the lower court had effectively substituted its judgment for that of the City Council.
The Firm is proud to represent the residents of Douglasville to protect what they value: community, safety, and a clean environment.
