Braselton commercial development gets final approval
By Matt Lampert Access Insider
BRASELTON – It has been in the works since 2006, and now that the Town Council has approved the final plat, Liberty Village can become a reality.
Liberty Village is a commercial development that will be located on the corner of GA-211 and Liberty Church Road across from Chateau Elan. The Town Council approved the initial concept plan in November 2006. According to a staff report, the purpose of the final plat is to “dedicate the applicable utilities and associated easements and to subdivide the property for sale.”
Developer Scott Snedecor of Lensned, LLC said: “There will be an Ace Hardware, Regions Bank, Discovery Point and hopefully some restaurants.”
Snedecor plans to be open for business by summer and says some buildings could be in place within the next 60 days.
ALSO ON THE AGENDA
Council members approved a request to reduce the minimum building setback from 40 feet to 29 feet for lot 24 in The Woodlands at Chateau Elan subdivision. The purpose of the variance is to construct a covered deck. Per the staff report, an uncovered deck would be permissible within the Braselton Development Code. However, since the deck will be covered, it is considered part of the principal structure and requires a variance to construct.
The council conditionally approved two requests from Jay and Rehka Desai. The requests include the annexation of two parcels, totaling 1.47 acres, and re-zoning the land from non-residential commercial to general commercial.
Council members conditionally approved Larry Beck’s application to re-zone to general commercial 1.215 acres of land owned by Jean Hales Beck and William F. Reynolds.
The council adopted an ordinance allowing Braselton to collect a franchise fee from all cable and video operators in the town who have signed franchise agreements with the state.
Zion Baptist Church’s request to waive all fees for new meter connections for former Mitsubishi facilities was approved.
The council approved alcoholic beverage licenses for La Hacienda of Braselton, Bottom of the Cup and Green Tea.
