Two rezoning requests from General Holdings Unlimited, LLC of Monroe, GA will be presented to the Henry County Board of Commissioners this week. The requests are located in close proximity to each other, off East Lake Parkway and Millers Mill Road, in the Woodland community.

The BOC will consider the proposed residential developments at their meeting on Tuesday, October 15, at 6:30 pm. Meetings are held at the Henry County Administration Building located on Henry Parkway in McDonough.

RZ-19-05 East Lake Parkway at Springdale Road

Fifty acres located at the northeast corner of East Lake Parkway at Springdale Road are proposed to be rezoned from RA (residential agricultural) to RS (residential suburban) for the purpose of constructing 184 housing units. The project proposes a mix of townhouses and duplexes.

The RS zoning district allows for a combination of two (2) of the following: townhouses, duplexes, or single-family homes. One-hundred eighty-nine acres located adjacent to JP Moseley Park was rezoned to RS in March of this year.

Henry County planning staff and the zoning advisory board recommended approval of the rezoning request. The staff report is available to view on the county website.

RZ-19-14 1496 Millers Mill Road

Eighty-nine acres located at 1496 Millers Mill Road are proposed to be rezoned from RA (residential agricultural) to R-3 (single-family residential). The project is proposing 144 lots with minimum home sizes starting at 2,200 square feet.

The property was granted a conditional use permit by the zoning advisory board to build a conservation subdivision on the property. Conservation subdivisions preserve at least forty percent of the property as perpetual open space, and include wide undisturbed buffers on the property’s boundaries. These buffers include one-hundred feet along the road frontage and fifty feet on other property lines. In exchange, the developer may build lot sizes as small as 10,890 square feet (one quarter-acre), rather than the 18,000 sq ft lot conventionally required in the R-3 zoning district.

Henry County planning staff recommended approval of the rezoning request and the zoning advisory board recommended denial. The staff report is available to view on the county website.
