A 15-home subdivision overlooking Lake Lanier in North Hall is being proposed by a Murrayville developer. 

The 54-acre development would be off Shirley Road, near Crooked Creek Road and about a mile off  Mount Vernon Road.  

The possibly gated subdivision would have two private driveway entrances, with the driveways shared by the 15 lots, which would average 3.6 acres in size, according to a Hall County planning staff report on the proposal. 

A mandatory homeowner’s association would be set up in the neighborhood, which would own and maintain the driveways. 

The developer, Sosewood Property Group LLC, is scheduled to go before the Hall County Planning Commission on Monday, Sept. 21. Sosewood is seeking a rezoning for the now undeveloped, heavily wooded property from residential-agricultural and vacation cottage to planned residential development.  

Other details about the project, including possible prices, was not available. Rena Millwood, listed on the county report as the contact for Sosewood, couldn’t be reached for comment. 

“The intent is to subdivide (the lots) for high-end residential homes,” according to a project narrative that’s part of the staff report. “It is a beautiful parcel … with an abundance of mature hardwoods.” 

Planning staff is recommending approval of the project. The planning board can only recommend approval or denial on rezoning matters to the Hall County Board of Commissioners, which would have the final say.
