The Banks County Planning Commission approved requests presented at the Tuesday, Feb. 16, meeting that will bring 26 new homes to the county.
The planners first approved a request from Dexter Ledford for 12 parcels on a plat of property on Highway 63.
Before the vote was taken, planning commission member Taylor Griffith asked Ledford about the planned driveways. Ledford said that there will be one drive per two homes.
Planning commission chairman Jack Stewart asked the price range, and Ledford replied "low to mid $200,000s."
In the other request, the planners unanimously approved the request from Seth Cape for the final subdivision plat for The Oaks at Banks Crossing. Cape said this is Phase 3 of the project, which will bring an additional 14 lots to the subdivision.
