Hall planning board to consider new South Hall wedding venue

A Flowery Branch couple is seeking to develop a 43-acre wedding venue near JM Turk Road in South Hall County.

Roger and Cathy Little plan to ask the Hall County Planning Commission on Tuesday to allow the property to be used as an agri-entertainment venue.

“We don’t plan on using the entire 43 acres,” Cathy Little said by phone Monday, adding that the entire operation probably will be on 5-6 acres.

However, the wedding site “will take advantage of the view of the remaining acres,” she said. “It will make you feel like you’re in the foothills of the North Georgia mountains.”

An existing building on the property will be used as “a preparation area for the wedding parties,” according to a county document on the proposal.

Weddings will be held under tents that would be put up on the property for each event.

The property, which is off Guth Road west of JM Turk, is near two established subdivisions, Steeple Chase Estates and Grand View Estates.

The planning board is set to meet at 5:15 p.m. Tuesday at the Hall County Government Center at 2875 Browns Bridge Road in Gainesville.

In another matter, a rezoning proposal for a 158-lot subdivision off Spout Springs Road near Quincy Drive was scheduled to go before the planning board Tuesday.

But the developer, Dunwoody-based Century Communities, has withdrawn the application.

One of the property owners, Dennis B. Bryan, said the owners are working with another developer on the plans.

The new developer “is supposed to be getting it back on the (planning commission’s) docket” at some point, Bryan said.
