City will vote on Howser Mill development April 22
Council member Mark French in opposition to zoning, variance approval
City hall
The Dawsonville City Council held a public hearing Monday night and voted to postpone a vote on a 172-unit development proposed near the corner of Howser Mill Road and Hwy. 53. Another public hearing and potential vote will be held beginning at 5:30 p.m. April 22 at city hall. The city’s planning commission voted earlier this month to recommend denial of the rezoning and variance requested by Jim King of Ensite Civil Consulting on behalf of the property owner. King is asking for a rezoning of the 38.58-acre tract of land at 592 Hwy. 53 West from R-3, or single family residential with a density of three units per acre, to RPC, or Residential Planned Community.
