BOC objects to annexation, higher density subdivision planned on Perimeter Road
County commission
In a 3-1 vote Oct. 18, the Dawson County Board of Commissioners decided to send a letter of objection to the city of Dawsonville in regards to a pending annexation and rezoning request for two parcels of land on Perimeter Road at the corner of Allen Street where a subdivision has been proposed. 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, contingent upon the city council approving the annexation and rezoning. If passed by city council the annex and rezone would allow a 53-home subdivision on a combined 14.175 acres. The acreage that is currently in the county is zoned RSR, or residential sub-rural, which allows only one principal residence per parcel of land.
