Kennesaw okays affordable senior housing

A proposal for a future affordable senior housing development was approved on March 4 by the Kennesaw City Council.

Royal American Development requested the combination of five parcels into one parcel for properties along Sardis and Main Street for the approximately 5 acres in the Central Business District (CBD) zone.

The proposed concept includes 78 units for the development.

Other matters include:

  • the Council decided to lease from the Georgia Municipal Association (GMA) two Public Works 2019 F-250 Trucks, one Police 2019 Interceptor SUV and three Police 2019 Interceptor Sedans. The total amount of the loan is $149,498. Through GMA, the city will finance the truck for five years with annual payments of $32,606 at an annual interest rate of 4.33 percent. Funding will be through BB&T Bank via GMA.
  • federal funding of $133,294 that will come to Kennesaw through the Cobb County Board of Commissioners and the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. The city will use the grant for curb and gutter replacement and stormwater improvements in the Kennesaw Heights subdivision, including Tara.
