The Dawsonville City Council voted Monday night to table a decision on a proposed annexation and rezone application that would allow 53 homes to go in at the corner of Allen Street and Perimeter Road. The council decided to extend their decision until the Dec. 3 meeting to allow for more time for a written agreement to be drawn between the property owners and the city over a shared detention pond to be built on adjacent city property. Applicants Michael Turner and Myles Montgomery are petitioning to annex into the city limits 11.407 acres and rezone to R-3, or single family residential with a density of three units per acre, as well as rezone another 2.768 acres already in the city from light industrial to R-3. The applicants also asked for a variance of 3.74 units per acre as opposed to the standard three. The variance was approved by the planning commission Oct. 8, with conditions and contingent upon the city council approving the annexation and rezoning.
UPDATE: Development Authority of Dawson County awarded $300,000 grant to help with manufacturer BTD’s local expansion project.
