The Peachtree City Council will hear a rezoning request to turn a 5.65-acre lot in Kedron Village into five lots of 1-acre-plus at its July 18 meeting.
The request received a recommendation for approval June 12 from the Peachtree City Planning Commission.
Commissioners agreed to recommend the rezoning on a 4-0 vote, which included conditions that overhead utilities be buried and that the size of homes, the building materials used and the building quality be compatible with surrounding homes.
Located adjacent to the Kedron Hills subdivision, but not part of it, the new owner of the 5.65-acre tract requested to plat it for five single-family homes. Both the current estate residential and the proposed R-43 residential classifications are considered single-family, low-density zoning categories, said city Planning and Development Director Robin Cailloux.
The tract is also situated next to Greenwood Oaks residences to the west and the Tyrone town limits to the north.
Cailloux said the property proposed for rezoning would have lots similar in size to those in Greenwood Oaks and larger than the Kedron Hills lots.
The proposal conforms with the future land use plan, said Cailloux.
Speakers during the public hearing surfaced questions pertaining to issues such as easements, driveway placements and tree removal.
The request will go before the City Council on July 18.
