Hall County Commission set to decide trio of closely-watched rezoning applications on Thursday

By Marc Eggers Anchor / Reporter

GAINESVILLE – The Hall County Commission will be deciding three closely-followed rezoning applications Thursday evening, while a fourth has asked for more time to prepare its final presentation.

FIDES Development has asked to be tabled once again as the applicant seeks more time to respond to concerns expressed by neighbors of the 16.28-acre property abutting Lake Lanier.

FIDES' request to table its application until October is likely to be approved, but it will be “decision time” for McKinley Homes, LLC, and its plan to construct a 393-lot single family and retail development along Spout Springs Road; for Pulte Group’s plan to construct a 144-lot single family subdivision adjacent the Reunion Subdivision, also along Spout Springs Road; and for a plan to construct a boat and RV self-storage facility at the intersection of Browns Bridge Road and Cherokee Trail, an application tendered by Lanier Luxe Self-Storage.

Hall County Planning and Development Director Sarah McQuade told commissioners during their work session Monday afternoon that since the three applications have moved on from the Planning Commission her office has continued to receive comments on the applications.

All three applications were eventually recommended for approval by the Hall County Planning Commission; all three experienced various adjustments and changes by the applicants to the plans initially presented during the Planning Commission phase of approval; all three have had multiple conditions attached to their recommendation for approval.

“There was a good bit of opposition to this request during the public hearing, so I anticipate there will be (more), as well,” McQuade said as she summarized one of the applications.

“I’ve gotten a few emails on this one,” Commissioner Jeff Stowe said as another of the applications was presented. 

“There were approximately 61-public comments received in advance of this public hearing,’ McQuade said as she presented her final rezoning application. 

Thursday’s voting session is open to the public and begins at 6:00 p.m. in the Hall County Government Center.
