The Peachtree City Council by unanimous vote on April 6 approved the annexation of Heritage Assisted Living on Ga. Highway 54 East. The annexation request came after the facility’s private septic tank system failed.

Heritage, which includes 49 personal care apartments, was connected to the Peachtree City Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) system earlier this year.

Heritage had submitted the Step Two annexation application for the 3.5-acre property situated along the north side of Hwy. 54 East.

It was in October 2014 that the City Council approved the facility’s Step One annexation application.

The Fayette County Commission at a recent meeting had no objection to the annexation request.

The city’s two-step annexation process requires that a developer present the proposal so the council can determine if the request should proceed through the annexation and zoning process.

The first step of the two-step process provides a general overview of the proposed annexation.

If recommended by the council, the second step would allow city staff to work with the applicant to develop a detailed analysis of the proposal, develop a schematic master plan for the property and develop a recommendation for the Planning Commission and City Council.

That happened, and Peachtree City now has another assisted living facility within its borders.
