PTC Planners to vote this Monday on Hwy. 54 West retail center


A proposal to build a shopping center with one store larger than Peachtree City’s 36,000-square-foot size limit will be debated by the city’s planning commission Monday night (June 13).

Trinity Development wants to build a 65,000 square foot retail store with two smaller “junior box” stores and a row of shops with two separate buildings. The development, known as the “Line Creek Shopping Center,” is proposed for 14.3 acres at the southwest corner of Ga. Highway 54 at Planterra Way and Line Creek Parkway.

The bigger store size will necessitate a special use permit, which can only be granted by the City Council. The commission is expected to vote to either recommend approval or denial of the special use permit, though council is not bound by that recommendation.

The matter will be discussed in a public hearing format, giving the commission the opportunity to receive input from residents. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. Monday at City Hall.

Trinity is also hoping to convince the City Council to sell it part or all of Line Creek Parkway, which also is necessary to have the larger store on the site. The sale of the street will also allow Trinity to lower the grade of the shopping center, thus lowering the impact on the adjacent homes in the Cardiff Park subdivision.

Trinity representatives have agreed to additional buffering and landscaping along the property line that abuts Cardiff Park.

In other business, the commission is also expected to review, but not vote on, a concept plan for the senior apartment complex on Newgate Road near the Kedron Village shopping center and also a concept plan for a parking lot expansion for Southside Church on Robinson Road.

The commission is also expected to consider approval of a landscape plan for the Walgreens pharmacy that is being built at the southwest corner of Ga. Highway 54 and Peachtree Parkway.
