Have you ever boycotted a business because you disagreed with its politics?
Chick-fil-A is known for a lot of things – the chicken nuggets and waffle fries, the friendly and efficient staff, the cow statues hanging off billboards and urging people to ‘eat mor chikin.’ The opening of a new store can draw crowds of people willing to camp out overnight for the chance to win a free year of food. The restaurants are popular places for school fundraisers. And many people look forward to the promotional days that offer free food to those willing to dress up like the cow mascots. But in recent days, the Georgia-based fast food chain has been catching flak for president Dan Cathy’s statements against same sex marriage. In East Atlanta, the owners of Urban Cannibals Bodega + Bites _ Chef Calavino Donati and her wife, …

Group votes down rezoning proposal from restaurant chain. Issue will move on to city
The Dunwoody Homeowners Association is not supporting Chick-Fil-A's rezoning wish for a proposed restaurant at Jett Ferry Road and Mt. Vernon Road. The board voted down Chick-Fil-A's plans Monday night. The fast food chain is proposing to open a restaurant on a 0.77-acre lot at the intersection of Mt.

But these plans would require the city to make some zoning changes and variances, which some say fly in the face of the city's long-term land use plans. Bob Lundsten, who argued strongly against the proposal Sunday night, asked members of the association …

Dunwoody's commitment to long-range development plan to be tested;
Traffic would increase on nearby roads, engineer says
The chicken sandwich is taking on city planning. The first test of Dunwoody's long-range development plan involves a proposed Chick-Fil-A restaurant with outdoor seating and a drive-through near the former Ace Home Place on Mt. Vernon Road. The debate already is roiling and goes to heart of the discussion Dunwoody residents had when they created their vision of future development in the city. Some commercial areas were to be small scale and easy to walk to from neighborhoods. Other commercial areas were to be larger and driven to in a vehicle. But that vision of the future goes out the window for some residents when they hear a Chick-Fil-A may open in Mt. Vernon Center. "Chick-Fil-A is one of the best and I think it's a good thing they go…
