There are several zoning/variance items being heard by the City Council this week. The Webb Road zonings should be of significant interest to people who live near Webb Road, are connnected to the streams near these sites, or are concerned about the development in this area.
To view the packet of information regarding these proposals please go to the City of Milton website, and click on the calendar and then click on the "agenda" and "packet" to see the details of the cases being voted on Thursday.
From Cogburn Rd the proposed office building is located about half way down Webb on the right hand side, before the day care which also has a zoning/variance case being heard. Due to the transitional location of the parcels to be developed, some residents believe a 4 Story Office building(maximum height 60 feet, 140,000 square foot), and the proposed 3 story (110,000 square foot) storage facility are not an appropriate use, size, or height for this area. Those of this opinion believe this type of office building is better suited for the Deerfield/Windward office park area where nearly 1,000,000 square feet of vacant or unbuilt space is currently zoned and available.
Also, it is believed that a storage facility of this size will be too large. City of Milton staff and Planning Commission recommended that the building heights be limited to 2 stories, and 30 feet in height, which should also reduce the square footage of these buildings.To get a visual of what this building would look like go to http://www.lauthproperty.com/ and look at the few 140,000 square foot 4 story office buildings they show on their website. Accessmilton.com encourages input from citizens like you to consider making public comment, emailing your questions or concerns to the Mayor and City Council, and making your neighbors aware of this project.
