Fayetteville road rezoning decision postponed

A decision regarding rezoning 213 acres off Ebenezer Church and Davis Roads in Fayetteville has been postponed until the Aug. 23 meeting of the Fayette Board of Commissioners.

The county held a public hearing on July 12, but the applicant withdrew the request because only three commissioners were present. TSTT Investments LLC wants to rezone the tract from agricultural-residential to PUD-PRD and develop it into 91 single-family lots.

The hearing drew objections from nearby residents concerned about increased traffic on unpaved Davis Road, as well as the higher density and the potential for problematic water runoff.

The original rezoning request was denied by the commission in 2016, resulting in a 2018 lawsuit in which Superior Court Judge Christopher Edwards ordered the matter brought back to the commission to address TSTT’s claims that the county’s restrictions were unreasonable.
