WOODSTOCK — The Woodstock City Council will hear an appeal May 24 related to a proposed 286-unit apartment complex on Ridgewalk Parkway.

The council approved tabling a public hearing Monday, postponing it until May 24 because Warren Johnson and Brian Wolfe were absent.

The city council voted Nov. 16 to deny a request from The Worthing Companies to rezone 37.5 acres on the south side of Ridgewalk Parkway, just west of Interstate 575, to allow for the development of an apartment community with 286 units. The Worthing Companies’ plan also included a retail parcel, a site designed for a new station for the Woodstock Fire Department and the donation of 16 acres on the south side of the property to the city.

The developer appealed the city council’s decision to the Superior Court of Cherokee County. In response, the council voted April 12 to consider the appeal and the developer’s request for a settlement agreement. After a public hearing, the council could consider whether or not the settlement is warranted.

Although some residents were in attendance for the hearing, they told the council they would return for the May 24 meeting and speak then.
