A request to rezone 22.12 acres on Mount Moriah Road for the purpose of building a 44-unit subdivision is expected to go before the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners later this month after getting a green light from the planning commission.
On April 1, Gwinnett County Planning Commission members voted 9-0 to recommend approval with conditions for the rezoning (RZR2014-00009) and accompanying special use permit request (SUP2014-00019).
The applicant, Lawrenceville-based 4WS Properties, has requested the property be rezoned from RA-200 (agriculture-residence district) to R-100 (single-family residence district) modified.
The conditions recommended by the planning commission include a requirement that all homes be at least 2,400 square feet and that all lots adjacent to Boulderstone Way should be 100 feet in width. An amendment proposed by at-large nominee Don Shillington would have required all homes to have the sides finished to match the front material failed by a vote of 7-2.
Another northern Gwinnett County case -- a request for a 286-unit apartment complex on Mall of Georgia Boulevard -- was denied without prejudice after the applicant advised the company, Brand Properties, was no longer pursuing the project.
