Flowery Branch City Council approves downtown homes

By Austin Eller News Director

The Flowery Branch City Council on Thursday approved a rezoning request allowing for the construction of seven homes at the corner of Lights Ferry Road and Gainesville Street. 

Lights Ferry Partners, LLC. and Diego Fracasso asked for the 1.92-acre property to be rezoned from Residential, Detached Single-Family, Low-Density District (R-1) to Traditional Neighborhood Development District (TND). Councilman Joe Mezzanotte was the lone dissenting vote on the request.

The proposed homes would have detached garages with cohesive fencing and potentially exterior fireplaces, according to Rich Atkinson, Director of Planning and Community Development. Atkinson told the council city staff recommended approval of the rezoning request.

The rezoning included 15 conditions, which the applicant agreed to.

The full rezoning document, including a full list of conditions, can be viewed here.
