Blue River Development is proposing a planned residential development on 107.88 +/- acres in McDonough. The land is located south of the Publix at Lake Dow shopping center and west of Travis Drive.

The project proposes to utilize a combination of the R-50 (single-family residential), RTD (residential townhome district), and RM-75 (multifamily residential) zoning districts. 1.5 acres will also be preserved for a future public safety complex.

Proposed housing units include the following:

  • 250 apartment units, to be located immediately west of Travis Drive.
  • 196 age-targeted single family residential lots, to be located within the interior of the site.
  • 53 townhouses, to be located southwest of Publix at Lake Dow.

The total number of units equals 499. The threshold to warrant a development of regional impact (DRI) review is not met. That threshold, to warrant a review period and comments by Georgia DCA and the Atlanta Regional Commission, is five-hundred units.

The McDonough city council will hold a workshop review about the request on Thursday, November 7, and conduct a public hearing on Monday, December 9. The McDonough planning commission will hold a workshop review on Tuesday, November 12, and conduct its public review session on Tuesday, December 3. All meetings are held at McDonough city hall starting at 6 pm.
