Brookhaven, GA, August 7 – Residential South Partners, LLC, received approval by Brookhaven’s Planning Commission to rezone 2.92 Acres, located at 1440 and 1448 Harts Mill Rd. to Allow for the Construction of Twelve (12) Single Family Detached Homes. (Video here)
The City Council could see this project on their next Regular Meeting Agenda.
The subject site is currently two adjacent lots, owned in common, totaling 2.92 acres. The lots are located at the north side of Harts Mill Road, at its intersection with Bubbling Creek Road. On the far north side of the larger of the two lots is a two-story single family home with an accessory one-story detached garage to its east. The home and garage take access from Harts Mill Road by a driveway east of Bubbling Creek Road. The lots are fully wooded, generally increasing in elevation towards the north, but with a pronounced low area on the southwest, essentially comprising the entirety of the smaller of the two lots.
These lots were rezoned in 2002 by the current owner/occupant to R-A5c (Single Family Residential, Conditional). That zoning was undertaken so that the properties could be subdivided from two lots into ten lots, including the existing home which was to remain as a part of that original zoning approval. The potential development density of the current zoning is 3.42 dwelling units per acre. The current proposal is to amend that earlier site plan with a new site plan that creates 12 lots, including the demolition of the existing home and garage. The net addition to the plan will be two additional home sites, for a revised dwelling unit density of 4.11 dwelling units per acre. The site is surrounded by single-family detached homes immediately adjacent, zoned R-A5 (Single Family Residential District) to the west, north and east, and R-75 (Single Family Residential District) to the south (across Harts Mill Road).
The submitted site plan indicates the demolition of the existing home and accessory detached garage, to allow for the construction of 12 new single family detached homes. All of the proposed new homes will face and take access from a new interior street, proposed to meet Harts Mill Road at its intersection with Bubbling Creek Road. All of the new lots conform to the terms of the zoning ordinance for lot area, lot width and setbacks.
