A 67-home subdivision is proposed off McEver Road between Gainesville Street and Radford Road in Flowery Branch — the latest in a string of housing developments being sought in the South Hall city.

The development on 21.3 acres — or three homes per acre — is set for discussion at the Flowery Branch City Council’s work session Thursday night.

Flowery Branch City Council work session

What: Proposed rezoning for a 67-home subdivision off McEver Road

When: 6 p.m. Thursday

Where: City Hall, 5517 Main St.

A rezoning from agricultural-residential to planned unit development is being sought on the property, a wooded area near the McEver intersection at Gainesville Street and Jim Crow Road.

A map of the property, prepared for MB Regional Enterprises LLC of Buford, shows the main entrance to the subdivision off Gainesville Street. But residents also could enter and leave the development at Radford Road.

Also, a 2-acre site at the corner of Gainesville Street and McEver would be reserved for commercial development. Much of that corner already is developed, including a gas station and a retail center where Branch House Tavern restaurant is located.

The intersection of McEver at Gainesville Street and Jim Crow has been under reconstruction for several months — a project featuring left turn lanes. Denise Farr of Hall County engineering said the work could be finished in 2-3 weeks, weather permitting.

New homes and craftsman-style cottages, as well as fashionable, rehabilitated ones, are popping up or are on the horizon throughout Flowery Branch.

Up for a vote at Thursday’s meeting is a proposed development between East Main Street and Phil Niekro Boulevard featuring 63 townhomes and 31 single-family homes.

Recently approved is another 55-home development off East Main near Thurmon Tanner Parkway.
