Ruling on I-75 site in McDonough postponed

The McDonough City Council voted to postpone an annexation decision regarding a site next to the I-75 interchange on Hwy. 20/81.

The 1.68-acre total tract is the location of the former Ruby Tuesday restaurant, and the request includes a lateral rezoning from county C-2 (general commercial) to city C-2 (central commercial). After a presentation at the council’s July 15 regular meeting and a public hearing that included several citizens speaking in opposition, a motion was made to postpone a decision to the Aug. 1 meeting.

After it passed, a meeting was requested between the applicant and the council to discuss details of the project proposed for that location.
