A developer proposing to build 334 apartments at 4496 Hog Mountain Road, next to Flowery Branch High School, is holding an open house Wednesday, Aug. 28 at Flowery Branch City Hall.

The public event is set for 6 p.m. and has been billed as “a chance for interested parties to meet representatives of Woodfield to discuss the proposed project.”

Two open houses have been held on Woodfield Development’s plans for the 32.6-acre project.

Open house

What: Proposed 334-unit apartment complex in Flowery Branch

When: 6 p.m. Aug. 28

Where: Flowery Branch City Hall, 5410 W. Pine St.

lengthy public hearing was held Thursday, Aug. 15, before the Flowery Branch City Council during which a presentation was made by the developer and residents and council members asked a flurry of questions.

Residents said they were particularly worried about traffic, with council members also bringing up the project’s potential impact on Exit 12 at Interstate 985.

Councilman Joe Anglin called the Spout Springs Road exit a “souped-up rural interchange.”

But Woodfield officials said they expected Exit 14, which is set to open Wednesday, Sept. 3, to both relieve Exit 12 and be used by many of the complex’s residents.

The council ended up delaying its first vote on the proposal to Sept. 5.
