194-home subdivision planned for Flat Creek area

A gated subdivision of almost 200 homes on Lake Lanier could be coming to the Flat Creek Road area.

The Hall County Planning Commission has signed off on a proposal to subdivide 194 lots for an age-restricted development at 5062 Stephens Road just off of Flat Creek Road near Oakwood.

National homebuilder CalAtlantic Group is aiming to convert 72 acres of land, which now holds pasture, a smattering of structures and two chicken houses, into a planned unit development with a community dock, swimming pool, tennis courts and a clubhouse. The property is currently owned by Anderson, Mark and Glen Byers.

The group’s proposal was approved this month by the Planning Commission and is now bound for a hearing before the Hall County Board of Commissioners in February.

CalAtlantic would use Gainesville water and Oakwood sewer for the development, while most of the surrounding area relies on septic tanks, according to a report prepared for planning commissioners.

More than 4 acres near Lake Lanier would be reserved for public amenities in the gated community — a public dock, clubhouse, pool and tennis courts. No age limit is officially proposed for the property.

As proposed, the development would have about 2.7 units per acre and a minimum lot size of 6,500 square feet. The minimum home size will be about 1,600 to 1,800 square feet.

The roads in the subdivision would be private and maintained by the homeowners association, which would form when the neighborhood is complete. Construction is expected to finish before 2021.

CalAtlantic operates in 19 states and specializes in neighborhood developments, according to its website. Its Georgia operations are based in Alpharetta.
