Kennesaw takes no action on de-annexation

No action was taken Nov. 5 by the Kennesaw City Council on a de-annexation request submitted by Greysen Manor Subdivision property owners.

Two reasons are that the petition is not signed by 100 percent of the property owners and the Cobb County Board of Commissioners has not adopted a resolution consenting to the de-annexation.

The homeowners are represented by Debra Williams, president of the subdivision’s HOA.

With the final plat approved in November 2000, the subdivision of 25 lots on 13.3 acres was annexed from the county into Kennesaw in December 1999 and rezoned R-15 with a minimum 2,400-square-foot house size.

The city’s Planning Commission and Kennesaw Zoning Administrator Darryl Simmons are recommending denial of the de-annexation request.
