The Jefferson City Council will consider a rezoning and variance request for a proposed apartment community along Damon Gause Parkway.
The council will convene at 6 p.m. Monday at the Jefferson Civic Center for its monthly business meeting.
The recommendations coming from the Jefferson-Talmo Planning Commission will be considered on the application from John Buchanan for a 353-unit apartment community called Trail Creek on Highway 129 on 23.55-acre tract. Rezoning from R-2 to MFR (multi-family residential) is sought for the larger parcel and rezoning of a 1.5-acre tract from R-2 to C-2 for commercial use is requested. Denial is recommended because of incompatibility with the Land Use Plan.
The council will also determine the fate of a variance request from Jason Phillips, who is seeking a multi-color sign for Jefferson Animal Hospital at 2352 Highway129 North, in order to attract attention to pets available for adoption and pet-related health advisories such as rabies confirmations and rabies clinics.
Middle Oconee River Holdings is also seeking a rezone and conditional use for property on Highway 129 at John B. Brooks Road to allow for a tractor-trailer storage and maintenance operation.
Gateway Company is seeking an amendment to the 2010 conditions for Maple Park to allow Phase 2 to be developed without the 55 and over age restrictions. It is possible that the second phase will not be developed at the present time without the amendment.
