Forsyth County News

The Forsyth County commission postponed several items that were on the agenda for their meeting Thursday night.

They included proposed changes to the unified development code and zoning amendment requests from Lou Sobh Automotive.

Also delayed was a public hearing on an appeal of a decision by the zoning board of appeals.

Commissioners did, however, approval many other matters, including the following:

* An amendment to the Forsyth County Addendum to the Georgia Storm Water Management Manual following the second of two public hearings.

Resident Dave Ingmire, a civil engineer, presented some suggestions for improving the county’s storm water management program. Commissioners said they would pass them along to staff for review.

* A right-of-way abandonment for part of Mathis Airport Drive in south Forsyth.

* Atlantis Pools and Spas LLC’s request to install a pool closer than the required 40-foot setback at a home in Windermere subdivision.

* Runelle J. Byers’ request to amend zoning conditions on a McGinnis Ferry Road property. It involved certificates of occupancy for several town homes.

* A revised zoning condition to drop the requirement that a certified wildlife habitat designed by Ron James be included in plans for Hunter’s Walk subdivision on Hurt Bridge Road.

Josh Scoggins, an attorney representing the developer, said a nature habitat and trails will still be a part of the development, but James has passed away.

* Fowler Mill LLC’s request to amend zoning conditions on a site at Fowler Road and Atlanta Highway.

Ethan Underwood, an attorney representing the property’s developers, said it reduces the number of homes to be built from 30 detached and 40 attached to 40 detached, single-family homes, lowers the density and allows for higher price points.


Note: All votes were 4-0, with Commissioner Jim Boff absent.
