The church has requested the existing zoning be modified to include architectural treatments of stucco and stacked stone. 12Stone has also asked the requirement for a pitched roof be removed in order to accommodate plans to construct a new facility at the site.
Norwood Davis, CFO of 12Stone, appeared before the planning commission on Sept. 3 to explain the request. Previous zoning requirements, Norwood said, were imposed with the idea the property would be developed for retail. Those requirements, particularly the pitched rood requirement, would not be appropriate for the 30,000-square-foot church, he said.
There was no opposition to the request.
The case will go before the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners on Sept. 24.
