Notice of Public Hearing
The Mayor and City Council of Peachtree City will hold a public hearing on Thursday, March 7, 2013, at 7:00 P.M. It will be held in the City Hall Council Chambers at 151 Willowbend Road in Peachtree City. All interested parties are invited to attend and be heard.
The purpose of the hearing is to allow for public discussion of a proposed variance to Section 1007.4.e(1) of the city floodplain management/ flood damage prevention ordinance which prohibits encroachments within the regulatory floodway.
Dominion Partners, LLC is constructing the Somerby at Peachtree City assisted living and memory care facility on Rockaway Road. Grading associated with the project requires that fill be placed within a small portion of the existing floodplain in order to construct a level area for the planned fire access road around the building. The area where the fill is proposed is the location of a former logging road on the property, which created an abnormality in the delineation of the actual floodplain.
In addition, the Applicant is requesting that the variance also apply to a portion of the regulatory floodplain that will be disturbed to accommodate construction of the sanitary sewer line to the regional pump station on the Meade Field tract across Rockaway Road.
