Peachtree City grew by 75 acres Oct. 7 as the City Council unanimously approved the annexation of an existing residential subdivision and office park.

The action made Longboat subdivision and the Terry Office Park on the city’s eastern border an actual part of Peachtree City, although the area already had city mailing addresses.

Planning and Development Director Robin Cailloux signaled that the city likely is “close to the end of cleaning up our borders” via annexation.

The 47 homes in the subdivision were said to be in the over-$500,000 range, and 90% of the registered voters living there asked to come into the city, Cailloux said in her report.

The Fayetteville City Council last week denied an annexation request for about 39 acres at the northeast corner of the intersection of Ga. Highway 54 West and Sandy Creek Road. The vote was 4-to-1 against the step one annexation request from Stolz Partners. Councilman Paul Oddo voted against denial. The land is currently mostly clear-cut but otherwise undeveloped.

On the other hand, the council approved 4 city-initiated rezonings unanimously. The 24.5 acres at 563 Sandy Creek Rd. went from Business Park (BP) to Planned Community Development (PCD).

The 1.6 acres at 240 South Glynn St. was changed from Residential Professional (RP) to C-1 Downtown Historic Mixed-Use District.

The 7.76 acres at 210 Stonewall Ave. West was rezoned from RP to C-1 Downtown Historic Mixed-Use District, as was another 2-acre parcel at the same address.
