A 325-home subdivision off McEver Road in Flowery Branch got the City Council’s final OK Thursday, April 19.
Council members didn’t discuss the matter, but they heard plenty from residents.
Concerns varied from impacts on school and traffic to the recent wave of residential proposals contrasted by the lack of commercial ones.
Also, residents were concerned about high-density subdivisions hurting Flowery Branch’s small-town feel, with one person asking the council, “Do we want to be a cookie cutter town?”
US Land Investment LLC’s plans call for 325 single-family detached homes on 109 acres, known informally as the Conner property.
The site would be bounded by McEver Road, Gainesville Street and Lights Ferry Road, not far from the city’s downtown, with entrances off McEver Road and Gainesville Street aat Chattahoochee Street.
Home prices could run from the $200,000 to $400,000 range, and the development would feature an amenities area, lake and walking trails.
Gee Harvey of US Land Investment representative has said that if all goes well, development of the subdivision could start in the fall, with homes starting to sell in two years.
