Planning board OKs commercial rezoning in South Hall

POSTED: March 3, 2014 7:34 p.m.

The Hall County Planning Commission on Monday recommended approving the rezoning of two residential properties in South Hall to allow for small commercial development.

The Hall County Board of Commissioners will vote on the proposed rezoning when it meets March 27. 

As reported in The Times last month, Stacie and Mack Sloan bought the two properties at 6336 and 6340 Spout Springs Road, which total about 1.7 acres, before the recession put a hold on their plans to develop or sell the land. With the economy slowly improving, the Sloans said they hope they can capitalize on the growth trend taking shape in the area. The Board of Commissioners last week approved rezoning land along Spout Springs Road to allow for the development of an apartment complex. 

“We’re just looking to keep up with the area,” Stacie Sloan said. 

Planning commissioners said rezoning to suburban shopping comes with many restrictive land use conditions, a fact the Sloans acknowledged. 

“I’m very interested in what you’re doing,” Commissioner Craig Heighton said, adding he wants to make sure the proposal is in line with other development likely coming to the area. 

The Sloans said they weren’t sure what would happen with the property, but that a strip mall was the likely outcome. Any development, they added, is likely still two to three years away.
