Flowery Branch hosts public hearing on two residential rezonings

By Christian Ashliman Anchor/Reporter

The Flowery Branch City Council Thursday evening heard from applicants about two residential rezonings that are slated for areas north of downtown.

The first request came in the form of both an annexation and rezoning application submitted by PR Land Investment. The space is 23.3 acres located at 5170 Church Street. Approximately 10 acres of the property lies in an unincorporated area of Hall County, with the remaining land sitting in Flowery Branch city limits, according to city documents.

The end goal is to have the entire parcel brought into Flowery Branch city limits with a zoning of Traditional Neighborhood Development District.

Once that process is complete, PR Land Investment has plans to build 117 detached single-family homes in a subdivision with several requested variances.

No one spoke in opposition to the rezoning and annexation.

Thursday’s meeting was the public hearing, with the first reading and vote set for Jan. 4.

The second request that the city council heard was for a rezoning of over 14 acres located at 5416 and 5408 Gainesville Street. The applicant, Edge City Properties, plans to rezone the space to Residential, Detached Single-Family with the intent of developing 40 single-family homes, according to city documents.

Several variance requests also accompany this application, including one that asks for a reduction of the minimum lot size from 15,000 square feet to 6,700 square feet.

The first official reading and vote on the item is also set for the city council meeting on Jan. 4.
