Proposed 356-home Senoia subdivision up for City Council vote Oct. 16

A proposed subdivision that has created a lot of chatter in Senoia makes its way to the City Council Monday, Oct. 16, for a conceptual plat approval.

The subdivision, called Keg Creek Landing, sits on 248 acres on Seavy Street to its intersection with Ga. Highway 85. Developer Brent Scarborough is planning on building 356 homes on the site. The development includes 106 homes for seniors that would be smaller in size.

The staff review said it meets the city’s requirements for a plat and includes several other items:

• Realigning Hwy. 85 and Seavy Street.

• Widening Seavy Street.

• Connecting golf cart access to Horseshoe Bend.

• Providing 27 acres across Hwy. 85 the city could possibly use for its new sewer plant.

In late September, the city’s Planning Commission heard the proposal, and voted against approving the plat by a 3-2 motion. Reasons cited by commissioners included density of the project, increased traffic and golf cart accessibility.

The City Council meets at 7 p.m. Monday at the city building on Howard Road.
