Where can I find a copy of the proposed design guidelines?

A website has been created to park documents related to the proposed local historic district. The address is http://rbgraphix.com/Oakhurst/index.html. You can request a copy to be sent via e-mail by sending your request to preserveoakhurst@gmail.com. You can also request a hard copy to be delivered by calling 404-371-9007. Spread the word to your neighbors.
