By a split vote of 3-2, the Powder Springs City Council agreed Dec. 4 to rezone property in its downtown area. Councilwomen Cheryl Sarvis and Patricia Wisdom were opposed to the rezonings while Councilman Patrick Bordelon and Councilwomen Doris Dawkins and Nancy Hudson were in support.
Now 17 properties are zoned Central Business District instead of Office/Industrial and residential - seven of them belonging to the city. City Clerk Kelly Axt told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Teresa Smith of 4401 Pineview Drive was opposed to having her property rezoned commercial.
City Attorney Richard Calhoun also said this rezoning “does not kick her out.”
“It will be a better return on her investment one day,” Calhoun added.
City officials plan to hold an open house to unveil plans for the new downtown from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Dec. 11 at the Ron Anderson Recreation Center, 3820 Macedonia Road, Powder Springs.
