20-home expansion proposed at Reunion Country Club in South Hall
0727REUNION
Pulte Home Corp. is seeking to rezone this property off Deaton Henry Road in South Hall for a 20-home expansion of Reunion Country Club.

Rezoning request

What: The Hall County Planning Commission is set to hear a request to build a 20-home expansion of Reunion Country Club off Deaton Henry Road in South Hall.

When: 5:15 p.m. Monday

Where: Hall County Government Center, 2875 Browns Bridge Road, Gainesville

Already large Reunion Country Club in South Hall could grow a bit larger.

A proposal to add 20 more homes on nearly 8.5 acres off Deaton Henry Road, which juts off Spout Springs Road north of Williams Road, is set to go before the Hall County Planning Commission on Monday.

“The property is currently vacant timber land with no improvements,” states the application, submitted by Pulte Home Corp. of Smyrna.

The new development “would serve as an expansion to Reunion and (would) not be accessed off Spout Springs Road,” Hall County Planning Director Srikanth Yamala said.

Instead, “access to this parcel would be through a future phase of Reunion,” the application states.

To develop the site, which touches existing Reunion property, Pulte is seeking a rezoning to planned residential development from agricultural-residential.

Pulte plans to request the change at the planning board’s meeting set for 5:15 p.m. at the Hall County Government Center, located at 2875 Browns Bridge Road in Gainesville.

Jason Garrett, who submitted the application, couldn’t be reached for comment.

Hall County planning staff is recommending approval of Pulte’s plans subject to original conditions placed on the 641-acre development, including that homes are at least 1,700 square feet in size.

The 812-lot subdivision was originally rezoned in 1999.

Reunion is in a particularly fast-growing area of South Hall, with the six-lane Friendship Road/Ga. 347 splitting Grand Reunion Drive, one of the major entrances into the neighborhood. A push to get a traffic light placed at Grand Reunion and Ga. 347 has been unsuccessful.

The subdivision also has an entrance off Spout Springs Road, at Dove Point Lane and near Hall County Fire Station 14.

Spout Springs, a mostly two-lane road, is being targeted for widening between Flowery Branch and Braselton. Hall County officials have said they’re hoping to start this year buying property needed for the $60 million project.
