Gainesville planning staff has expressed concerns about a drive-thru restaurant and small retail outlet proposed for the intersection of Thompson Bridge Road and Virginia Circle ahead of a public hearing next month. David Johnson, a local cardiovascular doctor, is asking the city to rezone three properties, two of which have homes on the lots, at the intersection from residential development to neighborhood business. But Community Development Director Rusty Ligon said a proposal to have access to these commercial properties from Virginia Circle does not meet the city’s comprehensive plan.
