PTC gets food truck parking site request
A local company wants Peachtree City’s blessing to establish a “food truck lot” on Ga. Highway 54 near Willowbend Road that would be active on Mondays during lunch and dinner times.
The problem is that such a concept is currently illegal under the city’s outdoor display ordinance, according to city staff.
Grazing Here Properties and Big Vision Holdings are asking to have room for no more than two food trucks on the property from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The City Council is expected to consider the proposal at its regular meeting Thursday night, but if the concept wins approval it will require a subsequent editing of the outdoor display ordinance.
In other business Thursday, council will consider a staff request to add up to six “wayfinding” signs to direct visitors and residents to the facilities at the McIntosh Trail recreation complex. The signs would denote the location of the Frederick Brown Jr. Amphitheater, the Gathering Place senior citizens center and the city’s welcome center. The area also hosts the city’s BMX track and Shakerag Knoll.
The signs would be located along Peachtree Parkway and Ga. Highways 54 and 74, staff said. The funding for the signs would come from money received from the Georgia Department of Transportation for the second phase of the Hwy. 74 south road widening, according to a memo circulated to council members in advance of the meeting.
The city also is slated to hear two deck-related variance requests for the city’s rear setback requirements. One would replace a porch and extend 10 feet into the building setback at 305 Harcourt Place within the Sagamore subdivision. The other request relates to a three-foot setback encroachment on an existing deck that was built by a previous property owner at 240 Masters Square in The Fairways subdivision. The variance is necessary for the owner to be allowed to cover and screen the existing deck, according to city staff.
