37. Approval of a Petition of Harold Yellin, Agent, on behalf of Pier Rock Hwy 17 LLC, Petitioner, to rezone 69.235 acres at 4704 Ogeechee Road (PINs 20097 01001) from B-C (Community- Business) to I-L (Light-Industrial), Aldermanic District #1, File No. 20-002971-ZA
A request from Harold Yellin, Agent, on behalf of Pier Rock Hwy 17 LLC, Petitioner, to rezone 69.235 acres at 4704 Ogeechee Road (PIN 20097 01001) which is adjacent to U.S. Highway 17 from the B-C (Community Business) zoning classification to the I-L (Light Industrial) zoning classification (File No. 20-002971-ZA).
The subject property is located on the north side of Ogeechee Road between Chatham Parkway and Dean Forest Road. The portion under consideration is approximately 70 acres, undeveloped and immediately east of the municipal boundary with the Garden City. By petition of the former owner, the site and the larger adjacent tract was rezoned to the P-D-R (Planned Development Reclamation) zoning classification in 2006 for the purpose of establishing a borrow pit. The borrow put was developed consistent with the approved site plan and was later amended in 2010.
The current owners, who recently acquired the property, are in the process of closing out the pit under the review of the Environmental Protection Division (EPD), the permit is attached as part of the MPC Recommendation Packet. In addition, they intend to construct a flex office / warehouse onsite. Once closeout is complete, the former borrow pit will serve as a recreational lake.
The Planning Commission recommends approval of the petition to rezone the subject properties from a B-C (Community Business) zoning classification to an I-L (Light-Industrial) zoning classification.
