So far, three Peachtree City Council members are noncommittal about a proposed water park resort and retail area supplanting a quiet, nearly invisible conference center less than a mile from City Hall. A fourth, Mike King, indicated his potential support for the swap.
The nation’s largest chain of family-oriented, indoor water park resorts has its sights set on Peachtree City — the very heart of Peachtree City, as reported exclusively by TheCitizen.com Sunday.
Great Wolf Lodge Family Resorts is proposing to expand the facilities on the 38-acre site currently occupied by the Dolce Atlanta-Peachtree Hotel and Resort on Aberdeen Parkway.
The proposal by Great Wolf Lodge of Georgia LLC requests the rezoning of the 38.4-acre property from GC (general commercial) to LUC (limited use commercial) to redevelop the property.
In addition to the water park and hotel, the application states that the property will include a theater, specialty restaurants, arcades, spas, fitness rooms and children’s activity areas, many of which would be open to the general public.
The proposed expansion would bring a service road to within 20 feet of the back yards of an existing residential neighborhood and a multi-story water slide structure to within 40 feet of those same homes.
Asked for her opinion on the upcoming proposal, Mayor Vanessa Fleisch said she needed to keep her comments to a minimum given that the proposal will be coming before the Planning Commission.
“I want to see what’s presented at planning,” Fleisch said, adding that it is good that the property is being looked at for redevelopment. To read the entire article, click here.
