Kristi, Is there a better view of the proposed community for us to see. It looks like all apartments on this proposal. Do you know where we could see a diagram that is readable. Is this all apartments and townhouses or are there some homes in this community? I have enlarged it 5 times but the writing is still too blurry to see what is going on here. Thanks for the info.

Cynthia - I just added some enlarged photos. Keep in mind this is just a concept plan. This may be nothing like what is eventually built if the city revises its ordinance and if the property is annexed.

Kristi, where is the meeting? Is it at City Hall?

Hi Steve - My bad. I got in a hurry and left that very critical piece of information off. It's at 7 p.m. at Dacula City Hall.

WOW that is pretty powerful. I do not know of another plan quite like this other than maybe up at i-75 and 285 where the Waverly Hotel is located. And they do not have apartments at that location. THIS would change the entire feel of Dacula. I am torn between this and the debate at the Flying Machine! Kristi, are you going to tape this meeting for the citizens of the area, like you did the debates?
Kristi Reed (Editor) March 01, 2012 at 01:54 AM
Hi Cynthia - I plan to videotape the meeting. It is too bad the meetings are on the same night. Both should be interesting.

Are they taking questions or just presenting and voting on the layout and changes?Hate to miss the opportunity to ask questions but with it being election season, it gets busy!

Hi Cynthia - There will be a public hearing prior to the vote to allow citizens the opportunity to voice their opinion.
