1.      Consider an Ordinance requesting authorization for the City

Manager to sign a Final Plat as approval of the City Council of Forest Park for the subdivision of one (1) lot zoned C-1 General Commercial into two (2) lots.

 

SUMMARY AND BACKGROUND:  A petition has been submitted by Wachovia Bank owner, represented by Theresa B. Sirous, for Powell and Goldstein LLP, to subdivide a 2.72 acre parcel; Tax ID 13048A  E002; into two (2) parcels.  The proposed subdivision lies in Land Lot 48 of the 13th District, Clayton County, Georgia and its currently zoned C-1 General Commercial classification.  Upon subdivision, there will be two lots:

 

Lot 1:  Which is currently a developed 1.37 acre tract which            

       contains the Wachovia Bank facility, 4532 Jonesboro     

       Road, Forest Park, GA

                       

                              Lot 2:  Which is currently a developed 0.990 acre tract which

                  contains   a building/facility that has been vacant since

       2005.  This lot abuts old Jonesboro Road.            

 

The reason for this subdivision is so the owner, Wachovia Bank, can market Lot 2.  This subdivision is being accomplished under CFPCO Section 8-7-12(f) Short-cut Method.  The Planning and Zoning Board voted unanimously to approve the Final Plat and Chairwoman Agnes Martin signed the Final Plat as approval of the Board.
