Peachtree City developer proposes bringing in 28 acres on Hwy. 54 East for 27 homes plus mixed office-retail space —

The Fayette County Commission on Oct. 25 decided not to object to the proposed annexation of 28 acres along Ga. Highway 54 into Peachtree City (map above).

The request by Bradshaw Family LLP for 28.3 acres along Hwy. 54 and Sumner Road to be annexed into Peachtree City is proposing a mixed-use development that would include 27 single-family homes averaging $450,000, along with 30,000 sq. ft. of retail, 30,000 sq. ft. of office space and 37 percent greenspace.

County staff recommended that commissioners not object to the annexation request.

Two residents spoke against the action.

Though he does not agree with small residential lots, Chairman Eric Maxwell said he did not believe the county could win a potential lawsuit if the property remained in the county and the current agricultural-residential zoning stayed in place.

The vote not to object was unanimous.

The request on Oct. 8 was recommended for approval by the Peachtree City Planning Commission, but has not come before the City Council for a final vote.
