It will have the look of a bygone era, one that continues to embrace the increasing unique development in Senoia. The city council Aug. 3 approved the use of gas lights for the upcoming Gin Property development.

Council members agree that the homeowners association will own and maintain the gas lights and the city will pay the gas bill. The monthly bill per light was projected to be approximately $9.

In his remarks to the council, developer Scott Tigchelaar said gas lights would provide a unique look to the development. Though it would provide ambient lighting for the 11-acre development, Tigchelaar said it would be sufficient for the homes and would provide pleasing aesthetics. A total of 12 gas lights are expected to be needed.

Once completed, the Gin Property area will include 75-100 residential units with some home/office options and the possibility of a boutique hotel.

Also at the meeting, qualifying information was announced for the November election. Positions slated for the ballot include the mayor and council seats held be Larry Owens and Jeffrey Fisher.
