272 housing units on Hwy. 53 denied

Dawson County News

“Not all development was welcome by [Dawson] County, as commissioners stood their ground and rejected new housing units on Hwy. 53 East near Tractor Supply, to the surprise and joy of nearby residents. ...

Developers were recently unsuccessful in their attempts to build 177 single-family homes and townhome units on Hwy. 53 near Elliott Road.

Bill Evans Jr. and his developers attempted to have property that they own on both Hwy. 53 and Hughes Court rezoned so that they could build housing units on the property.

However, a large group of Elliott Road homeowners and surrounding neighbors took up against the developers with a petition and voiced their unrest at county planning and county commission meetings.

After months of back and forth, the commission finally denied the rezoning on Dec. 13, ending the developer's plans to build on the land for the present.

Commissioners said that their main reason for rejecting the request was that the developer's plans did not fit in with the future land use plan, and that added traffic and congestion there could cause more harm than just headaches.”

Let's all hope that the Forsyth County BOC is aware of the fact that the Dawson County BOC is actually taking control of their own destiny, and paving the way for Forsyth County to follow suit.
