Mayor and Council give nod to three projects

There will be three new construction projects in Snellville following action taken by Mayor and Council Monday.

An 11-lot single family housing development will be built on 2.765 acres at 2706 Lenora Church Road near T.W. Briscoe Park.

The development will include a total of 11 lots and abundant open space, according to developers. Homes will be two-stories with a modern farmhouse-style architecture, including a variety of concrete exterior materials. Homes will range between 2,400 and 2,800 square feet, all of which will include a minimum two-car garage.

The price of the homes will start in the mid-$500s. As proposed, the development will include sidewalks throughout the site, which provide safe and efficient access to Lenora Church Road and the park.

Mayor and Council also gave the go ahead for an indoor self-storage facility next to Hampton Inn & Suites on Pharrs Road near Highway 124.

Plans call for a three‐story, 100,149-square-foot climate controlled self‐storage facility on the 1.82-acre site located in the Park Place development which also houses Cracker Barrel and Freddy’s among other businesses.

T.W. Briscoe Park will get a much-needed new maintenance building as the current one housing parks equipment is in poor condition.

During the summer, the Mayor and Council approved a proposal from Champion Buildings, Inc. for the new maintenance building. The proposal also included delivering and erecting the building totaled $254,500.

Then city officials bid the site grading, interior finishes, and asphalt and concrete work separately.

The project will take place in three phases after a $1.569 million contract was awarded to Diversified Construction of Georgia. Funding for Phase One and Two of the project will come from 2017 Special Local Option Sales Tax funds.

Phase One – The civil and infrastructure work will be performed, including all underground utilities, paving and grading, building concrete pad, and all required plumbing stub outs.

Phase Two – The pre-engineered metal building will be erected by the manufacturer (already approved).

Phase Three – The interior build-out will be performed, including all interior partitions.
