DAWSONVILLE, Ga. — Dawson County Commissioners are expected to vote on a rezoning request that would permit construction of the 1,038-home Crystal Falls Lake and Golf Community when they meet Thursday at 6 p.m. in the Government Center Assembly Room, 25 Justice Way.
Dawson Cherokee Capital LLC, has requested rezoning 1,038.46 acres in the southwest corner of the county from Residential Sub Rural to Residential Planned Community for the development that would include a golf course, club hours, olympic-sized swimming pool, tennis courts and walking trails and a wastewater treatment facility to be maintained by Etowah Water and Sewer Authority.
The property is located west of Cowart Road between Yellow Creek Road and Kelly Bridge Road. Build out is expected to take 10 years with five phases being developed every two years.
A large and vocal group of stakeholders attended the Planning Commission meeting to express opposition to the development and another packed room can be expected to attend Thursday’s meeting. The Planning Commission recommended commissioners deny the rezoning request.
Commissioners will also consider:
- A rezoning request by Jerry Fouts for the construction of a mini storage facility with 48 units;
- An amendment to a portion of the Impact Fee Ordinance;
- A request to Apply for Fireworks Tax Grant;
- A resolution regarding defunding of In-House Legal Department Expenses for Westlaw Services.
