Paisano’s Pizza on Georgia Avenue Has Closed

Multiple tipsters are reporting that Paisano’s Pizza at 8213 Georgia Ave. has closed, apparently for good.

Zoning Change Would Allow More Flexibility for Accessory Dwelling Units

Property owners in the county would have greater flexibility to add accessory dwelling units under a proposal introduced last week by Councilmember Hans Riemer (D-At Large).
