A proposed 295-home development across from West Hall High School off McEver Road goes before Oakwood City Council on Monday, March 12.

Rosewood Active Adult Communities is seeking to annex and rezone 62 acres between Chamblee Road and Westbrook Lane.

Rosewood’s plans call for 151 townhomes and 144 single-family homes. The homes wouldn’t be age-restricted.

Prices for the townhomes could run in the $170,000 range and for the detached homes, $190,000 to $230,000.

Oakwood City Council

What: Proposed annexation and rezoning for 295-home development

When: 7 p.m. Monday, March 12

Where: Oakwood City Hall, 4035 Walnut Circle

The bulk of the development, or 43 acres, is residential and would be located mostly on the Westbrook Lane side, according to a map submitted by Rosewood.

Commercial development is proposed on 16 acres on the Chamblee Road end, with another 3-acre commercial tract at the corner of McEver and Westbrook, the map shows.

Rosewood’s plans were recommended for approval by the Oakwood Planning Commission on Monday, Feb. 19, but with some reservations.

The board gave its OK to the annexation and rezoning, but members required a site plan with more details be brought back to the city before the project goes forward.
