Peachtree City lifts multifamily rezoning moratorium for 6 months to await development plans
A request to lift the multi-family rezoning moratorium for a single, undeveloped 5-acre tract on the southeast side of Lake McIntosh was approved May 3 by the Peachtree City Council for a six-month period. Developer Chadwick Homes is proposing 24 condominiums for the site.

The council voted unanimously to approved the lifting of the longstanding moratorium on multi-family developments for the specific property requested by Chadwick, with the provision that plans for development be submitted within six months.
The 5.1-acre lakefront property, essentially forming a peninsula, is adjacent to and southwest of the Planterra golf course, west of Falcon Field and north of Lake McIntosh Park. Three sides of the peninsula are water-facing. The site accesses TDK Boulevard.
Currently zoned GI (general industrial), Chadwick plans to return with a rezoning proposal that would request the construction of 24 condominiums on the property.
Chadwick representatives during the presentation noted provisions of the 1985 Land Use Plan noting, “… some MDMF (medium-density multi-family) should also be constructed near the industrial park, so as to permit close work/home relationships.”
Project planner Jerry Peterson in an April letter said that, while zoning industrial, the site is no longer appropriate for an industrial building.
“There have been years of attempts to market this parcel as industrial or office, but with no success because of the remote location and other factors. Southpark still has some industrial parcels on the golf course after years of marketing,” said Peterson.
