Subdivision developers postpone plans again

POSTED: August 5, 2014 1:18 a.m.

Plans to develop an 89-lot subdivision straddling the Hall County and Gwinnett County line were sidelined again Monday when the planning commission tabled the proposal until next month.

Developer Holt Persinger, owner of Winder-based Ridgeline Land Planning Inc., said he wanted to get approval from Gwinnett before proceeding with a request to rezone 22 acres in Hall.

“We’re still trying to meet with adjacent property owners to talk to them about their concerns and see what we can work out,” Persinger told The Times.

The land proposed for development consists of about 49.5 acres on Ridge Road in the Buford city limits, between Jones Creek subdivision and other tracts facing Friendship Road.

The Hall County portion of the development would entail 36 homes across 22.27 acres.

Water and sewer utilities would be provided by Gwinnett.

Hall planning staff has recommended rezoning its portion of the land to allow the development to proceed.

The commission will take up the matter at its Sept. 2 meeting.

Persinger said the proposed subdivision fits with local land use plans.

“If you look at the map, there’s already adjacent subdivisions right there on Ridge Road on the Gwinnett side,” he said, adding that good local schools make the homes ripe for sale.
