Two more subdivisions are proposed on bustling McEver Road in Flowery Branch.

A 93-townhome development is proposed on a 17-acre site near Radford Road and across from SKF USA, and 102 single-family detached homes are proposed on 44-plus acres near Gaines Ferry Road.

Both proposals are set to go before the Flowery Branch City Council at 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6. The meeting will be in City Hall, 5410 W. Pine St.

City staff is recommending approval of the townhomes with several conditions.

Staff is recommending the 102-home development be denied.

“The major issues are the lack of meeting the requirements of the comprehensive plan and the planned unit development zoning designation,” the city’s staff report says.

If approved, the developments would add to a housing boom taking place along McEver Road in Flowery Branch and neighboring Oakwood. Several subdivisions are being built or have been approved along the road.
