A request to build a soccer center and event facility on Burton Circle near Barrett Road in Gainesville has been withdrawn by the applicant, a move approved by Hall County commissioners at a Thursday, June 14 meeting.
Sergio Felix of Oakwood had requested to build a 9,600-square foot indoor soccer field and event center, as well as lighted outdoor soccer fields. The approximately 75-acre property was in a residential area. The Hall County Planning Commission recommended denial of the request at its May 21 meeting, where residents said they were concerned about traffic in the area.
The applicant could still submit another request for the property, although the approval process would restart, Commissioner Scott Gibbs said at the Hall County Board of Commissioners meeting on Thursday.
