Hearing Monday for Wieland annexation request in PTC


A public hearing regarding a request to annex 80 acres of a subdivision into Peachtree City will be held at the Peachtree City Planning Commission's regular meeting Monday night.

The 80-acre site, which will be developed by John Wieland Homes, is north of the existing Wynnmeade subdivision and west of the new MacDuff Parkway. It was once included in the 900-acre, 1,700-home annexation proposal for the West Village area, which was denied by council last August.

Wieland plans to build 350 homes in the Centennial subdivision, which includes 101 acres already inside Peachtree City and the 80-acre tract that's outside the city limits in unincorporated Fayette County.

Access to the subdivision is via MacDuff Parkway, which will soon have an operational traffic signal.

Wieland has agreed to donate approximately 20 acres to the Fayette County School System to be used for a school if necessary.

John Wieland Homes officials contend the annexation will help address safety concerns relating to road access to the property.
