Rezoning approved on Fayette County’s Old Senoia Road

A 19.5-acre tract of wooded land on Old Senoia Road in Fayette County is being rezoned for residential development.

The Board of Commissioners voted 5-0 on April 23 to approve the request to change the existing A-R designation to R-50. Once cleared, the property will be divided into approximately 15 single-family, one-acre lots. Randy Boyd, the agent for the property, said the houses to be built on the site would be approximately 3,500 square feet and cost in the $650,000 range. The county’s Planning and Zoning Commission had already approved the change, and the development conforms with the county’s land use plan.

The property had been owned by Jean King and her family for 51 years.
