Braselton leaders rejected a request this week for a townhomes project in an industrial section of town.
Braselton planners will consider a rezoning request next week for a massive mixed use project off Jesse Cronic Rd.
The residential component of the proposed project would include 220 homes under one ownership made available to rent individually.
“The property owner didn’t want to sell us a portion of her property but was interested in selling it all,” Town Manager Jennifer Scott said. “So, we purchased the home and lot, built the lift station, have replatted (the property), and are now selling the home.”
Braselton will hold a public hearing in the Braselton Police and Municipal Court Facility, 5040 Highway 53 to discuss the 2021-2025 Capital Improvement Element update.
The proposed project on the south side of Duncan Creek Road would include 141 acres and include a recreation area at the rear of the property with a cabana, pool and “tot lot” with about 28 acres of passive open space.
To protect residents and visitors, Nikki Perry, Braselton’s tourism director, said the city plans to host a “reverse parade.” Instead of allowing spectators to line the streets and watch floats and decorated vehicles pass by, the opposite will happen.
While all social distancing protocols will be in place, city leaders and the fire board plan to take a photo with the engineer/architects and contractors.
Braselton has formally adopted an updated comprehensive plan.
The Braselton Town Council deferred a vote on an updated comp plan for the town on July 13.
