Planners to vote on retail for 54 West, 74 South

Four significant development plans will be up for a vote at Monday night’s meeting of the Peachtree City Planning Commission.

The highest-profile plan is likely the plan for a 99,000 sq. ft. shopping center on Ga. Highway 54 at Planterra Way, the same site where Capital City Development previously proposed to locate a Kohl’s Department Store.

The new plan doesn’t include the Kohl’s or any big-box sized store, and it would leave the current design of Line Creek Drive and Line Creek Circle intact presuming the city declines Capital City’s request to sell them to the company.

The new plan features a gas station located directly off Ga. Highway 54.

Also on tap Monday night are:

• Somerby at Peachtree City, a senior housing development off Rockaway Road that will have townhomes, assisted living and memory care residences;

• A shopping center directly across Ga. Highway 74 south from Wilshire Pavilion; and

• A conceptual plan for the extension of MacDuff Parkway in Wilksmoor Village, which will link the artery with Old Senoia Road and Ga. Highway 74.

The commission will also consider zoning changes that would forbid any retail uses from locating on property zoned for general industrial use. This would keep large retail businesses from locating on property zoned GI.

The commission meetings begin at 7 p.m. at City Hall.
