Board of Commissioners on Tuesday, November 27, at 6:30 pm

Meetings take place at the Henry County Administration Building at 140 Henry Parkway, McDonough, GA. The meeting agenda may be viewed on the county website.

Public Hearing:  (ULDC-AM-18-05) Planning and Zoning staff request an amendment to the Unified Land Development Code (ULDC) by replacing Section 4.02.02 Fairview Road Overlay District with the amended Section 4.05.00 Highway Corridor Overlay District. Countywide

This request was a discussion-only item at the most recent board meeting. The intent of the ULDC amendment is to create consistency in development by phasing out the Fairview Road overlay district and perform minor edits to the Highway Corridor Overlay following its first eighteen months in effect. The highway corridor overlay was adopted by the board in March 2017 to ensure high construction standards for all new development along major roadways in unincorporated Henry County.

Present zoning conditions require a minimum home size of 2,500 square feet. The applicant is requesting to reduce this requirement to 2,000 square feet. The subdivision is located along Turner Church Road, between Airline Road and Carter Drive.

Public Hearing:  (RZ-18-15) Hillibee Grove LLC of Carrollton, GA requests a rezoning from PD (Planned Development) to MU (Mixed Use) for property located on Lester Mill Road at Bill Gardner Parkway. The property consists of 84 +/- acres, and the request is for a mixed use residential and commercial development. District 2

The subject property was rezoned in 1999 as part of a planned development to allow commercial use on the property. This could have included a grocery store, movie theatre, and other high traffic-generating commercial destinations. The applicant is proposing to reduce the intensity of development while incorporating residential and green space components. Additional information is available within the property’s blog post.

Public Hearing:  (RZ-18-13) Carole Galimore of Fayetteville, GA requests a rezoning from R-3 (Single-Family Residence) to C-2 (General Commercial) for property located near the northwest corner of the intersection of Tunis Road and Jodeco Road. The property consists of 1.12 +/- acres, and the request is general commercial to conform to surrounding properties and the Future Land Use Map. District 4

This request is supported by the future land use map and is within an established commercial area along a major corridor. The applicant does not have a specific intended purpose at this time and potential property uses are regulated by the highway corridor overlay. The overlay will also ensure quality construction standards when the site builds out.

Note: the proposed R-2 on sewer subdivision on Crumbley Road was advertised for this meeting, but has been postponed by the applicant. The request will be heard by the board at a later date.
