I am contacting you with information of the proposed rezoning of the past “Dunn property” currently owned by Cherokee County. This property is currently zoned as residential (R-20). The proposal is to change the zoning to light industrial (LI) and encroach into stream buffers. Listed below are a few concerns community members have about this proposal.
1. This industrial development will be at the headwaters of a tributary that flows through Westwood Station and then through Clark Creek Elementary School (CCES) and then into Clark Creek. Then into Lake Allatoona.
2. Light Industrial is currently on the North side of Hwy 92 as you travel East from Interstate 75. The South side has maintained a growing residential population.
3. Cherokee County has invested in the Clark Creek ES STEM Academy, Community members would prefer to foster residential growth in this area.
4. Cherokee County bought the property previously known as the “Dunn property” under a Parks Bond Referendum with a vote of 62% in 2008, but now Cherokee County is planning to sell to the developer for a small profit?
Below is a link of the originally proposed Southwest County Park. Go to page 47 of this document and view the original intent of this purchase.
Also, take a look at this AJC article concering this land purchase.
October 4th @ 6:30 pm rezoning information meeting.
