Question to be answered: Is Peachtree City planning to expand its boundaries beyond the 175 acres brought in last year? — 

Near the top of the agenda Thursday night for the Peachtree City Council is the annual state of the city address by Mayor Vanessa Fleisch.

The mayor’s report on Jan. 17 comes just weeks after the city completed annexing more than 175 acres of county land on the city’s northwest and east sides. It’s the most annexation in years for the city and one of the first-ever ventures into annexing land on the city’s eastern border.

Peachtree City’s boundaries have expanded to include upwards of 30 business properties in the Peachtree East Shopping Center, the Peachtree Court and Governors Square retail and office areas and a 50-acre undeveloped parcel for residential use, as well as two unincorporated islands west of Senoia Road and bordering Tyrone. The city also approved bringing in a 28-acre parcel between Hwy. 54 East and Sumner Road that will feature mixed uses ranging from homes, offices and retail shops.

Also on the Jan. 17 agenda is a request for approving a maximum price on the westside Gateway Bridge project across Ga. Highway 54 near MacDuff Parkway.

Several variance requests from property setback rules also are on the agenda.
