A 350-home subdivision off McEver Road in Flowery Branch comes up for a first vote before the Flowery Branch City Council Thursday, March 15.

A public hearing also is being held on the proposal submitted by US Land Investments LLC.

Flowery Branch City Council meeting

When: 6 p.m., Thursday, March 15

Where: City Hall, 5517 Main St., Flowery Branch

The 109-acre site, known informally as the Conner property, also would touch Gainesville Street and Lights Ferry Road, not far from the city’s downtown.

The project originally was approved by the city as a planned unit development in 2006. The Great Recession began a year later and virtually all development — residential or otherwise — stopped.

Rich Atkinson, the city’s director of planning and community development, said at the council’s March 1 meeting that the zoning wouldn’t change but that “the layout of the homes and some of the conditions will.”

The meeting is set for 6 p.m. at City Hall, 5517 Main St.
