The Henry County zoning advisory board will meet on Thursday, May 9, at 6:30 pm. Meetings are held at the Henry County Administration Building on Henry Parkway in McDonough.
Agenda items include public hearings for three rezoning requests, two conditional use permits, and one variance request. The ZAB is the decision making body for conditional use permits and variance requests, but makes a recommendation only on rezoning requests that will then be presented to the board of commissioners.
The meeting agenda and all meeting exhibits are available to view on the county website.
Reeves Creek mixed use project
Forest Development Group of Ellenwood, GA is requesting a rezoning from RA (residential agricultural) to MU (mixed use) for 317.6 acres located between I-75 and Flippen Road in Stockbridge. The property is part of a larger 436.3 acre proposal that also includes land within the city limits of Stockbridge and unincorporated Clayton County.
The project proposes a variety of uses, to include a convention center / arena, 10-story office towers, mass transit station, hotels, restaurants, retail space, medical office buildings, apartments, townhomes, senior living facilities, cluster homes, and single-family residential lots. The convention center / arena would be constructed under a public-private partnership that the board of commissioners will consider approving on Tuesday morning.
Little is known about how much the proposed convention center would cost to build or which financial mechanism the county may use to finance it. One cost estimate approved by the board within the county’s capital projects list in February totaled $90 million dollars for the venue.

General Holdings Unlimited, LLC of McDonough, GA is requesting a rezoning from RA (residential agricultural) to RS (residential suburban) for 50.4 acres located at the northeast corner of East Lake Parkway and Springdale Road.

Jonesboro Road personal care home
