Suwanee City Council to consider housing development at current church site

  Contact Editor

Suwanee City Council is expected to vote in February on a proposed townhome development on the current site of Suwanee First Baptist Church on Eva Kennedy Road.

The Suwanee Planning Commission postponed its vote on the project, and council members opted to do the same at their voting session Tuesday, said Marty Allen, city manager.

"It's approximately 18 acres, and (developers) are proposing 93 townhomes," said Allen.

The applicant, Spartan Investors I, LLC, is planning to demolish the existing church building to build the neighborhood. The property would be rezoned from a residential classification that calls for single family homes to one that allows for townhomes.

The site does not back up to Peachtree Industrial Boulevard, meaning residents would only have access to the proposed neighborhood via Eva Kennedy Road.

Council expected to give the plan a final vote at its February voting session, scheduled for Feb. 27 at 6:30 p.m. at Suwanee City Hall.
