The commission will meet at 7 p.m. immediately after the Cherokee County Board of Commissioners’ meeting.
The planning board conducts the public hearing and recommends to the board of commissioners, who will make the final decision on the request.
RaceTrac Petroleum, Inc. is requesting the county rezone 7.33 acres along Cumming Highway just east of Old Doss Drive to build a convenience store with gasoline sales.
The property under consideration is a total of 7.33 acres and is owned by Beatrice Flint and Billy Hasty Jr.
Portions of the property are zoned general commercial and the company is seeking to rezone 4.64 acres of the 7.33 now designated for residential to general commercial.
QuikTrip Corp. last year proposed similar plans on the property, but withdrew its application in May from consideration by the county commission.
The company’s request was met with opposition from neighbors, who expressed concerns that Old Doss Drive would not be aligned with Commerce Boulevard.
The plan filed for the RaceTrac proposes direct access onto Highway 20 and direct access onto Old Doss Drive “only after it has been reconstructed pursuant to GDOT plans,” according to its application.
Last year, RaceTrac won approval of a request from the county to rezone 2.45 acres along Highway 20/Cumming Highway at Scott Road from neighborhood commercial to general commercial for a convenience store with gasoline sales.
County Commissioner Harry Johnston said it was his understanding the company was not able to work out an arrangement with the city of Canton to provide them with sewer services and sewer was not available at that location from the county water authority.
Now RaceTrac is looking instead to locate on the Old Doss Drive site.
The county commission will consider the request during its July 24 meeting.
