A new development of 51 homes is being proposed for a 38-acre parcel connecting to Vermack Road.

City officials say Ashton Atlanta Residential LLC filed for conceptual review of the new subdivision at 4703 Vermack Road.

City staff members reviewed the proposal and met with the developer to discuss it, City Planner Rebecca Keefer said. Ashton Atlanta now is reviewing the comments from city officials, she said.

The proposal does not require a rezoning of the land, which is zoned R-100, Keefer said.
