The Cherokee County Board of Commissioners took action Tuesday on six cases of rezoning and annexation.

In two annexation cases to come before the board, the commissioners had a handful of concerns and approved motions to send letters to the respective cities to voice their concerns.

The first case involved the city of Woodstock considering annexing 28 acres on South Cherokee Lane for the development of 84 single-family homes, which the commissioners felt was not consistent with the county’s future development map, as well as the legal issue of partial parcel annexation. The second case surrounded 51 acres on Payne Drive and Misty Hollow Way the city of Holly Springs is considering annexing to allow developing 171 single-family homes. One of the major issues the commissioners saw here was, while the development would have two entrances, both were relatively close together and would thus not fully meet county guidelines on having more than one entrance to a development.

The board approved a request for postponement until the July 2 meeting of a case involving rezoning nearly 47 acres on Bascomb Carmel Road and Delay Street to allow for a residential subdivision, as the applicants are working on a new site plan.

Following the recommendations sent to the board by the planning commission, the board of commissioners approved a request to rezone 71 acres on Cable Road near Waleska from agricultural to residential for the construction of a subdivision, as well as rezoning 1.7 acres along Cumming Highway from residential to general commercial for a restaurant/office/retail space with 30 conditions set forth by the developer and an additional condition recommended by the planning commission.

Lastly, the commissioners denied a request to rezone land along Ga. Highway 92 from residential to general commercial for a used car dealership.

The next meeting of the Cherokee County Board of Commissioners will be Tuesday, June 18. The meeting will begin with a work session at 3 p.m., followed by the regular business meeting at 6 p.m.
