Subdivision proposed for East Hall site where soccer field was once planned

By Ken Stanford Contributing Editor

An East Hall property owner goes before the Hall County Planning Commission Monday hoping for approval of a subdivision on a piece of property which he once proposed for a soccer field. 

Sergio Felix's latest proposal calls for a seven-lot single-family home subdivision on the 71.78-acre site, which is on Burton Circle near the Barrett Road intersection.  In his application, Felix is asking for a "Use Subject to County Commission."  The parcel is zoned AR-IV (Agricultural-Residential Four).

His request is recommended for approval, with conditions by the county planning staff.

Last year, Felix requested that the property be rezoned to Highway-Business for the soccer facility but his application was denied by the planning commission and he withdrew the request before it reached the county commission for a final decision.

Documents on file with the county, show that most of the property is vacant and wooded and adjoins two subdivisions - Barrett Brook and Silver Ridge.  The planning staff's full report can be found here.

Also at Monday's meeting, as AccessWDUN reported a week ago, the planning staff is recommending denial of an application from Family Promise, which seeks to locate a facility for temporarily homeless families on McEver Road, where McEver Road United Methodist Church is now located.
