A rezoning request to establish The Shoppes at New Hope retail center along Ga. Highway 314 and New Hope Road has received unanimous approval by the Fayetteville City Council.
The conceptual site plan and special exception for a rezoning request for the 4-acre tract to establish The Shoppes at New Hope was recommended for approval in April by the Fayetteville Planning and Zoning Commission.
The property, located on the northeast corner of the intersection, was rezoned from C-2 (community commercial) to C-3 (highway commercial).
The development will include two retail buildings at 7,500 sq. ft. each and a separate small building for a Smoothie King located near Hwy. 314. The two larger buildings will be connected by a covered patio.
Planning commissioners on April 28 unanimously approved a special exception to allow three drive-thru windows in the development, one for each building.
The special exception was tabled at a previous meeting until a traffic study could be performed. That subsequent study showed that turn lanes into the development were not warranted, citing no ingress or egress issues.
