Council raises stormwater fees —
The Fayetteville City Council at the May 18 meeting unanimously approved a rezoning request to expand the Hampton Inn off Tiger Trail from 150 rooms to a proposed 208 rooms — an increase of 38% — and to allow construction of 30 multi-family units in a single building on that property. The rezoning request covers 5 acres within The Villages at Lafayette off Ga. Highway 54 just west of the downtown courthouse square.
Also approved last Thursday was a 54% hike in stormwater fees for this year with more increases set for each year until 2027.
