Braselton planners gave a nod for a large subdivision project off of Davis St. earlier this week.
The Braselton Planning Commission voted to recommend approving a zoning request for 85 acres off Davis St. near the intersection with Henry Braselton Dr. The Braselton Town Council will hold a second hearing on the request Sept. 10.
JTG Holdings, LLC, is requesting annexation and an R-3 residential zoning with plans to construct a detached, single-family home subdivision. One of the conditions recommended by staff limits the number of lots to 199.
Residences are proposed to total 1,800-2,800 sq. ft. Another proposed staff condition requires those houses be a minimum 1,800 sq. ft.
Mike Smith, who spoke for the application, said developers are considering creating a conservation subdivision, but a decision hasn’t been made. They also haven’t decided on a list of amenities, but Smith said they’re considering a community center with a pool and a playground.
Planners voted to recommend approving the project with a number of conditions. In addition to limiting the number of lots to 199 and requiring houses to be a minimum of 1,800 sq. ft., other notable conditions included:
•aligning the subdivision entrance with Henry Braselton Dr.
•requiring a 75-foot buffer on each side of a stream on the property. Planners added a recommendation that no portion of any private lot shall intrude into the stream buffer.
•a six-foot sidewalk must be installed on Davis St. frontage.
•planners also added a condition that developers present an itemized list of amenities to the town’s council.
