Where: Hall County Government Center, 1875 Browns Bridge Road, Gainesville

Subdivision on Spout Springs Road

A previously approved subdivision on Spout Springs Road near Spout Springs School of Enrichment may be getting townhomes in addition to the single-family homes already approved by the Hall County Board of Commissioners.

The Hall County Planning Commission will consider the addition of the townhomes at its Monday, Oct. 15 meeting.

The subdivision would have 187 single-family homes and 144 townhomes on about 138 acres. The single-family homes, on about 102 acres, were approved by commissioners in 2016. Now, the applicant, Clayton Properties, wants to add 26 acres to the neighborhood so townhomes can be added.

Planning staff is recommending approval.

Truck terminal in Clermont

Hulsey Environmental Services wants to add a small truck terminal on the company’s property at 6720 Cleveland Highway in Clermont.

Hulsey operates a waste treatment plant at another location, according to the company’s application with the county, but the trucks would be empty when they arrive at the terminal on Cleveland Highway.

The property is zoned highway business but is near some homes and a farm.

Parking would be limited to 10 trucks or trailers.

County planning staff is recommending approval of the truck terminal, as long as hours of operation are limited from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. and no waste is transported or stored on the property.
