Purpose of Request:

The purpose of this request is to provide documentation of the city's support of locally established building design standards for residential dwellings.

Facts Issues for Consideration: The Georgia Municipal Association believes the design standards bill will be a topic of discussion during the next General Assembly Session.

Applicant s Proposal and Background Information The City of Gainesville is proposing to rezone the subject property to help better market the property for future industrial uses as part of the planned 85 Business Park property. No specific use for the property has been determined at this time. The property was originally annexed and zoned in 1991 for a land application farm for wastewater which was never constructed. The current uses within the property include the Gainesville Public Lands and Buildings maintenance facility and the Kubota ATV / RTV test track. The property is heavily wooded with rolling topography and streams. Access to the property is currently from Fulenwider Road. Adjacent Land Use and Zoning Location Use Zoning North Allen Creek Soccer Complex; Gainesville Police Gun Range Residential-I (R-I-A) City South Industrial; Ampro Products, Inc., Residential Home Heavy Industrial (I-II); Agricultural Residential-IV (AR-IV) County East Hall County Fire Training Facility, Hall County Sherriff Gun Range; Undeveloped Land

Other Departmental Comments

There were no departmental comments for this request. Zoning History No zoning actions have taken place in the immediate area during the last ten years. Page 21 of 137 Page 2 of 4 Analysis (1) Is the proposed use suitable in view of the zoning and development of adjacent and nearby property? The subject property is adjacent to industrial and public uses located along Fulenwider Road and nearby Candler Highway and Allen Creek Road. Most of the developed property is zoned for industrial purposes both within the City and County which support the proposed rezoning request. (2) Will the proposed use adversely affect the existing use or usability of adjacent or nearby property? As currently proposed, this rezoning request should have minimal impacts to the nearby property as there is no specific use proposed and the surrounding area currently functions as a heavy industrial corridor. Future impacts will be more closely studied and mitigated prior to the rezoning and development of the proposed 1,300 acres, Gainesville 85 Business Park of which this property is part of. (3) Is the proposed use compatible with the purpose and intent of the Comprehensive Plan? It is staff s opinion that the proposal is consistent with the Comprehensive Plan. The Future Development Map for the City of Gainesville places the subject property within the Industrial land use category. This category includes areas containing or planned for a wide range of office, business, light industrial, manufacturing, research and development uses; and commercial uses that directly support or are otherwise linked to the dominant business use.
Tagged Passions:business, strategic, development, industrial, zoning, parks, Development, property, commercial, corridor, and history

According to the Character Area map for the City of Gainesville, the subject properties are located within the Economic Development Gateways character area which appears to support the applicant s proposal. This character area represents the industrial, warehousing and other commercial enterprises that parallel the I-985 and Norfolk-Southern railroad corridor. The primary vision for the area is to continue to support economic development while preserving and strengthening important natural and cultural resources. These areas include a wide range of office, business, light industrial, manufacturing, research, and development uses.

Tagged Passions:business, economic development, strategic, development, industrial, Development, commercial, corridor, and gateway

(4) Are there substantial reasons why the property cannot or should not be used as currently zoned?

The property is zoned for residential purposes which is not consistent with the Comprehensive Plan and is contrary to adjacent and nearby development. The proposed zoning of Heavy Industrial (H-I) is necessary for future industrial development as part of the future Gainesville 85 Business Park. (5) Will the proposed use cause an excessive or burdensome use of public facilities or services, including but not limited to streets, schools, water or sewer utilities, and police or fire protection?

Tagged Passions:business, sewer, strategic, utility, development, industrial, Utility, public safety, zoning, services, water, parks, Development, property, and education

Public facilities and services are currently provided to the property and are adequate. The future Gainesville 85 Business Park will require improvements to access, roads, stormwater and water / sewer utilities that will addressed prior to the overall larger tract being rezoned. The Gainesville Fire and Police Departments currently respond to the property and the nearest City of Gainesville Fire Station 1 is approximately 3.5 miles from the subject property. There will be no impacts to the City school system.

Page 22 of 137 Page 3 of 4 (6) Is the proposed use supported by new or changing conditions not anticipated by the Comprehensive Plan or reflected in the existing zoning on the property or surrounding properties? The surrounding area has experienced mostly industrial growth partly due to Exit 20 /I-985, Lee Gilmer Memorial Airport and CSX Railroad being located nearby. It is staff s opinion that the proposed use appears to be consistent with existing and expected uses of the Comprehensive Plan. (7) Does the proposed use reflect a reasonable balance between the promotion of the public health, safety, morality, or general welfare and the right to unrestricted use of property?

Tagged Passions:health, business, sewer, airport, strategic, utility, industrial, Utility, public safety, fire departments and districts, zoning, services, water, parks, property, education, growth, and stormwater

Based on the subject property s close proximity to other industrial properties, the proposal with the zoning conditions recommended by staff appears to promote a reasonable balance between the promotion of the public health, safety, morality, or general welfare, and the right to unrestricted use of property.

Staff Recommendation The Planning Division staff is recommending conditional approval of this rezoning request with Heavy Industrial (H-I) zoning, based on the Comprehensive Plan and the surrounding industrial uses. Conditions

Excerpts from the August 13, 2019 PAB Meeting Minutes

FAVOR: None OPPOSE: Ken Knott, 2920 Wallace Road, stated he owns property close to the area and plans to retire, concerned how it might affect the land he owns and future use of it. He wanted to know the time period of construction to begin. Chairman Carter stated it depends on the rezoning request outcome and some of the other surrounding property and is unsure of a timeline from the city at this point. Mr. Tate stated there is no specific timeline. The business park would not bring in odors, dust or industrial noise, and would be a clean and modern 21st century industrial business park. This is the first step in process. Mr. Knot asked if the 395 acres includes some of the Hall County land surrounding it. Mr. Tate stated he can meet with him afterwards to share information about the overall plan. Mr. Carter explained there will be public hearings involving the other acreage.

Garnet Knott, 2920 Wallace Road, wife of Ken Knott, is concerned about the property because it was inherited from her brother that passed away from cancer in 2011. Her brother built his dream home off on the back of the property and would be very close to the proposed park. She stated since her brother passed a shooting range is close by and can be disruptive during the day. Her brother bought the land with thoughts of living with peace and quietness to enjoy nature. The biggest concerned is for her brother s dream not to be ruined.

Page 23 of 137 Page 4 of 4 Planning and Appeals Board Comments: Chairman Carter encouraged Mr. and Mrs. Knott to get with Mr. Tate to understand and be more informed about the project. There was a motion to recommend conditional approval of the request to rezone the subject property from Residential-I-A (R-I-A) to Heavy Industrial (H-I) zoning for future industrial uses with the following conditions: Conditions

Excerpts from the August 13, 2019 PAB Meeting Minutes

Applicant Presentation: Ben Qualls, 952 Old Peachtree Road, stated he is with QuikTrip and very excited to add another store to the City of Gainesville and opportunity to be a part of the redevelopment of the downtown area. This will be the latest prototype and actually looks like the store on Limestone and Jesse Jewell but 900 square foot smaller as well as having the canopy on the side. The sign will be a nice touch to the redevelopment of the downtown corridor. He agrees with all suggested staff conditions.

EXISTING CONDITIONS

2.1 ROADWAYS SR 369/Jesse Jewell Parkway is an east-west route in the state highway system. SR 369 begins at an intersection with SR 20 to the east of the City of Canton and extends east to a terminus at an interchange with I-985/US 23/SR 365 in the City of Gainesville, Georgia. As noted in Table 2.1, the typical section of SR 369/Jesse Jewell Parkway includes a two-way left-turn lane. Within the study area, between SR 60/Queen City Parkway/John W. Morrow Jr. Parkway and East Avenue, the TWLT lane is striped as an exclusive left turn lane for the westbound approach to SR 60/Queen City Parkway/John W. Morrow Jr. Parkway. A raised, concrete curb located between the westbound left turn lane and the adjacent eastbound travel lane prevents any left turn maneuvers from the driveways and side streets between SR 60/Queen City Parkway/John W. Morrow Jr. Parkway and East Avenue. SR 60 begins at an intersection with SR 124 near Braselton, Georgia and continues north to the Georgia/Tennessee state line in McCaysville, Georgia. SR 60 provides access to I-985 to the south of the study area. The remaining roadways in the study area are local streets that serve traffic within the City of Gainesville. Table 2.1 summarizes the existing conditions on each study area roadway.

2.3 EXISTING TRAFFIC FLOW PATTERNS

Traffic counts were performed on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 and on Thursday, May 23, 2019. The counts included 4-hour turning movement counts (TMCs) at the intersections of SR 369/Jesse Jewell Parkway at West Academy Street and at SR 60/Queen City Parkway/John W. Morrow Jr. Parkway. A 12-hour TMC was collected at SR 369/Jesse Jewell Parkway at East Avenue. 24-hour bi-directional tube counts were performed on West Avenue, Gordon Avenue, SR 60/Queen City Parkway, and a 24-hour bi-directional classification count was collected on SR 369/Jesse Jewell Parkway. All traffic counts are included in Appendix A. Existing morning and evening peak hour traffic is shown in Figure 2.2.

PROPOSED CONDITIONS

No additional detail provided

3.1 PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT

The proposed development will consist of a 4,993 square-foot convenience store with 14 vehicle fueling positions. As part of the project, the existing Gordon Avenue Right of Way (ROW) would be abandoned by the City of Gainesville. Gordon Avenue would be redirected in a 90-degree angle at the edge of the project site. A new, full access intersection would be created with the realigned Gordon Avenue and East Avenue. A full access driveway into the proposed project site would be provided on the realigned Gordon Avenue. The existing intersection of Gordon Avenue at SR 369/SR 60/Jesse Jewell Parkway would be converted to a Right-In Right-Out (RIRO) driveway for the proposed project. In addition, a RIRO driveway would be provided on SR 60/Queen City Parkway. A site plan is shown in Figure 3.1.
