PTC to vote on annexing 7 acres on Hwy. 54 East
Developer wants sewer access; approval recommended with buffer, enhancements
A proposal to annex four parcels on 7.36 acres along Ga. Highway 54 East into Peachtree City will be considered by the City Council Thursday night.
The owner of the Peachtree Professional Center has asked for the annexation to allow hookup to the city’s sewer system. The hookup is not necessary but would be nice to have and it would allow for more of the site to be used for parking, according to Chuck Ogletree, a representative of owner Foot Pain, LLC.
Foot Pain is asking for the properties to be zoned for office use.
The annexation request includes not just the 4.36-acre Foot Pain parcel but three other smaller parcels along Hwy. 54 between it and the city limits.
The newly-constructed professional center has architecture worthy of the city, Ogletree has said, adding that the owner would work with neighbors off Sumner Road to provide additional landscaping to screen the site from the road as well as decide the location of a cart path connection.
City staff is recommending approval of the annexation and rezoning to office use subject to several conditions including the inclusion of a 25-foot undisturbed buffer along the Sumner Road right of way in addition to re-establishment of the buffer in areas void of vegetation using evergreen plant material at least six feet tall.
One of the other conditions is that all impervious surfaces on each parcel shall be at least 50 feet off the Sumner Road right of way and none of the parcels shall have vehicular access to any of the parcels from Sumner Road. All four parcels already have direct vehicular access to Hwy. 54.
CORRECTION: The parcels under consideration are on Ga. Highway 54 EAST of Peachtree City. The story has been corrected from the print version that incorrectly said "Hwy. 54 West." The actual location is on the opposite side of town from the developments along Hwy. 54 West that are also under review by the council.]
