UPDATE: It was reported by Jason Brooks of Grayson Local News that most of the rezonings were approved, green lighting a mixed use development on Loganville Highway between Loganville and Grayson. Read his account of the Gwinnett County Commission meeting at this link.
A large crowd is expected to attend the Gwinnett County Commission meeting this evening in opposition to a large development being considered for the Loganville/Grayson area.
Rezoning applications that would green-light the almost 346-acre mixed-use development were tabled in April and is expected to be up for a vote this evening. If approved, it will allow Grayson Investment Partners LLC and developer David Bowen to develop a community that includes more than 600 houses, townhouse and almost 570 square feet of retail space on both sides of Loganville Highway. A portion of the development is between Champion Way and Hope Hollow Road, close to Grayson High School.
A Facebook page has sprung up by those in opposition to the development. They are expected to make a large showing at tonight’s meeting. According to the agenda, the Planning Commission recommends approval with conditions for each of the seven items related to this development. The Planning Department, however, had recommended denial in the rezonings that involved property between Oak Grove Road, Champion Way and Hope Hollow Road.
The public hearing is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. at the Justice and Administration Building, 75 Langley Drive in Lawrenceville. Click here for the full Agenda.
