The developer behind plans to build 216 homes in Woodstock wants to also expand its footprint along Ragsdale Road.
Oak Hall Companies, LLC is petitioning the city of Woodstock to rezone 17.05 acres of land along Ragsdale Road to build single-family residential homes. The property is located on the two-lane road just east of Trickum Road.
According to documents submitted to the city, Oak Hall wants to build 51 homes on the property, which was rezoned in 2006 for an active adult, gated townhome community that was to be called StoneLedge.
The property has been partially developed with curb cuts, decorative lighting and streets, but no structures were ever built.
In a letter sent to adjacent homeowners, the company notes it wants to purchase the property and wants the city to change the zoning "because the current housing market is not receptive to attached townhome products."
Oak Hall will hold a public input meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday Oct. 2 at Magnolia Hall, located at 108 Arnold Mill Road. The meeting will allow the developer to discuss their plans with the public.
The Woodstock Planning Commission is set to consider the case during its Nov. 7 meeting and the Woodstock City Council will consider the case on Nov. 18.
Oak Hall also wants Woodstock to annex and rezone about 82.5 acres of land at the intersection of Barnes and Trickum roads from R-40/residential and agricultural in Cherokee to R-3A to allow for 216 single family detached homes on the land.
That request has propelled area residents to oppose their plans, citing the increased burden it would place on existing two-lane roads and near-capacity schools in the area.
The Cherokee County government decided not to file an objection to the request if the developer agreed to several conditions needed to mitigate the subdivision's impact on the area.
The Woodstock Planning Commission will hear that case on Oct. 3, and the Woodstock City Council will consider their request during its Oct. 28 meeting.
