Council OKs Costco-related projects

Include lines for water, sewer

POSTED: May 23, 2013 12:28 a.m.

A future wholesale shopping club is off to a good start in Cumming.

The city council approved a conditional use permit for Costco during its regular monthly meeting Tuesday night.

The permit will allow the big box retailer to sell alcohol by the package.

In addition, council awarded two bids for utility projects needed to support the new facility.

Ronnie D. Jones Enterprises will install a 12-inch water line along Market Place Boulevard for about $734,000.

Strack Inc. will be responsible for putting in a force main gravity sewer system along Bald Ridge Marina Road at a cost of more than $1.6 million.

Scott Morgan, the city’s director of planning and zoning, said the new Costco will be located where Market Place meets Bald Ridge, near Ga. 400 at Exit 15.

He said Costco representatives have begun “clearing and grubbing” the site in preparation for the new store, which will total about 148,000 square feet with more than 650 parking spaces.

“They should be starting the land disturbance really soon,” Morgan said. “They’re planning to be open by around Thanksgiving, by the end of November.”

The project will also include some road improvements, including additional turn lanes on Bald Ridge and a continuation of Market Place at the current red light into the store’s parking lot.

“It’s going to be a great project because everyone in this area and north all use the [Costco] in Alpharetta, so there will be plenty of business for them,” Morgan said.
