A residential development planned at the corner of Perimeter Road and Hwy. 9 near JC Burt Road is one step closer to fruition after the Dawsonville planning commission voted Monday night to recommended the city council approve a developer’s request for a site plan change.
The developer, Fall Leaf Residential LLC, has requested the site plan change for a 36.84 acre development that is split between two parcels, one slated for commercial use and one planned for residential use.
The residential portion, located on 32.6 acres, was originally earmarked for 123 housing units at a density of 3.77 units per acre when approved in 2006. The applicant is asking for a reduction to 102 units, with a new density of 3.12 units per acre.
The request was tabled from the Nov. 5 meeting due to concerns about the property being located on a potential Hwy. 53 bypass route, but the commission was unable to hold a December meeting as not enough members were in attendance.
