Potential ‘industrial subdivision’ on planning commission agenda

Posted

A proposed rezoning that would allow for an “industrial subdivision” off Keith Road will go before the Bartow County Planning Commission on Monday.Steven Powell is under contract to purchase the property at 114 Keith Road from Hamilton State Bank, according to the rezoning application. The application, filed by Keith Road Holdings, LLC, seeks to rezone the acreage from agricultural to industrial.The rezoning is sought for a development that would allow Full Circle Concrete Construction and North Georgia Truss Systems to move their existing businesses to site, allowing “for expansion and future growth.”A map of the boot-shaped property shows it is bordered to the west and south by residential developments and to the east by industrial properties. Interstate 75 lies to the north and east as well.According to Bartow County Board of Assessors records, the property last had a sale price in July 2006 of $855,500. Hamilton State foreclosed on the property in May 2013. The total market value was $209,100 in 2015.Also on Monday’s agenda is a request by Bruce and Jennifer Jennings to rezone 10.4 acres on Cassville Road in the area of Penny Lane and Grove Circle from commercial to agricultural. According to the application, the rezoning would allow the Jennings to put horses on the property and eventually build a house on the property.The Bartow County Planning Commission meets Monday at 6 p.m. in the Zoning Hearing Room at the Frank Moore Administration and Judicial Center, 135 W. Cherokee Ave. A final public hearing on the rezonings will be held Wednesday, Feb. 3, at 10 a.m. during the commissioner’s meeting.— Staff Writer Sampson Jenkins contributed to this story.
