When: 6-8 p.m. today

Hall County is hosting an open house today for people to learn about the county’s plan to offer sewer services in North Hall.
County officials will be at the J.A. Walters family branch of the YMCA on 2455 Howard Road from 6-8 p.m. to answer questions and talk about the long-term plan for the infrastructure.
Hall County Public Works Director Ken Rearden said there is currently no service in North Hall except in the city of Lula.
“We’re focusing along the (Hwy.) 365 corridor,” Rearden said.
The study area is within the approximate area north of White Sulphur Road and west of Old Cornelia Highway to Lula city limits, then west of Highway 365 to the county line, along the county line to Skitts Mountain Road, south on Skitts Mountain Road to Bowen Bridge Road, west on Bowen Bridge Road to Cleveland Highway, south on Cleveland Highway and east of the Cleveland Highway to the Chattahoochee River/Lake Lanier and north of White Sulphur Road.
Rearden said Hall County is “coordinating with the large parcel owners to see what their plans, are and we’re trying to develop a strategy to develop sewer up in that area for the next 20 years.”
Rearden said the county’s sewer service will not interfere with the new sewer plant Lula is now constructing.
“They’re developing a new sewer plant up there with expanded service,” Rearden said. “We are working with them to work around their service area to make sure ours doesn’t overlap with them.”
Sewer will be necessary before there can be significant growth in North Hall.
“The 365 corridor has always been a very good target area for commercial development in the North Hall area,” Rearden said. “We’re excited about it.”
Two significant future developments in the area — the Hagen Creek and Cane Creek communities — have already been approved by Hall County.
“The zoning they’ve asked for, they’ve got to have sewer in that area,” Rearden said.
