CartersvilleMayor Matt Santini broke a tie vote of the City Council to approve a new Senior Residential Living (SRL) zoning classification. The new zoning classification will allow for the construction of 1,000 square-foot homes, give City Council and staff flexibility regarding construction and variance issues, exempt developers from some of the usual stan-dards that apply to new developments and allow more density. Residents would be restricted to those ages 55 and older.
Avalon Lake,which is the site of a former 32-acre Christmas tree farm located on Mission Road,was unanimously rezoned to SRL following approval of the new classification.
UPDATE: The text of the SRL ordinance begins on page six.
