Roswell board to consider condo, townhome project

Roswell’s planning board is set to consider Tuesday a development of townhomes and condos that city staff has suggested be denied.

According to the staff report for the Roswell Planning Commission, the project proposes rezoning for 14 townhomes and a 42-unit condo building on three parcels in the 300 block of Jones Drive.

The new homes would be just off Atlanta Street and about a third of a mile from the Chattahoochee River.

Staff recommended denying the proposal because the it did not fall in line with the city’s comprehensive plan, adding that “a development should typically be single-family detached residential houses.”

In its report, staff also said some of the sketches were not in compliance with fire safety standards, including an inadequate plan for fire hydrants.
