Commissioners to vote on three developments Thursday

A proposal for a gas station/convenience store site off Ga. 365 and White Sulphur Road received an initial OK from the Hall County Planning Commission on Monday, May 6. In September, a new gas station is in the works for the area.

Three zoning items—a northeast Hall gas station, a Gainesville landfill for mud, and boat and RV storage at the former Mincey Marble facility—will get a final vote from commissioners Thursday.

QuikTrip on White Sulphur Road

A new QuikTrip gas station and convenience store could be coming to the intersection of Ga. 365 and White Sulphur Road, if commissioners approve it Thursday.

The almost 10-acre spot would be rezoned from light industrial to planned industrial development. The 7,318-square-foot convenience store would be near the Gateway Industrial Centre, a 518-acre industrial park that will soon be home to a new inland port.

The Hall County Planning Commission unanimously approved the proposal at a meeting on Oct. 7, and there was no public opposition. 

The city of Gainesville has also recently approved a QuikTrip location for the intersection of Jesse Jewell Parkway and Queen City Parkway.

Inert landfill on Calvary Church Road

Commissioners will vote Thursday on whether a hydro-excavating business can operate an inert landfill on Calvary Church Road.

The almost 13-acre property at 1563 Calvary Church Road would be rezoned from light industrial to heavy industrial, then leased to a hydro-extrusion company. Hydro-extrusion uses pressurized water to remove soil, and then a vacuum is used to move the debris to a tank. The process is most often used to expose underground utilities.

The mud would be emptied into an inert landfill on the property. That type of landfill can only accept “earth and earth-like products, concrete, cured asphalt, rock, bricks, yard trimmings, and land clearing debris,” according to the county staff report for the proposal. Household garbage, liquid waste and hazardous waste would not be allowed. Any kind of landfill must be zoned heavy industrial.

The planning commission unanimously approved the proposal Oct. 7, and there was no public opposition.

Warehouse on Browns Bridge Road

Space on the former Mincey Marble property on Browns Bridge Road could be used for boat and RV storage, if commissioners approve the proposal Thursday.

Apotheca, Inc., a natural health care product company, will be moving into the space at 4321 Browns Bridge Road. Seya Realty hopes to use 100,000 square feet of indoor space, which won’t be needed by Apotheca, to store boats and RVs inside the building, as well as about 50 spaces outside for short-term storage of up to 48 hours. Mike Evans is the CEO of both Seya Realty and Apotheca.

At a planning commission meeting Oct. 7, an area resident said she had concerns about the boat parking and hoped to see more detailed plans for the property.

The planning commission approved the proposal from Seya Realty.
