The developers of Century Center at Braselton in Barrow County filed an appeal this week with the Georgia Supreme Court in their lengthy and complex legal battle against the Town of Braselton over a zoning dispute.
The appeal revolves around three earlier Superior Court actions that took place in late 2007 and in August and October of 2008.
The parties are also awaiting a ruling from Superior Court judge David Motes on a hearing held in December on the case. The dispute revolves around Braselton’s zoning rules that mandate certain improvements along Hwy. 211 in front of the Century Center development.
Century Center argues that the mandated improvements are on state highway rights-of-way and not under the jurisdiction of the town.
The case has caught wide attention because the project’s location is near I-85 along Barrow’s main gateway to that interstate. In addition, the case caught headlines last fall after Judge Motes ruled that Century Center lawyers had defrauded the court with a bogus land survey.
Its about 10 ft. wide sidewalks, to no where, next to the18 wheeler Hwy 211 speeding track. Plus a DOT required INDEMNIFICATION AND HOLD HARMLESS AGREEMENT by the property owner agreeing to defend the State against lawsuits. No private property owner can assume such a needless obligation. Proper sidewalks are encouraged in the appropriate time and place.
You mean Braselton wants sidewalks there? Where in the world would you go?
And if "DOT Indemnification" is requested from BRaselton, I guess they're just asking for the moon.
It looks like if ya'll are associated with Century Center near Atlanta, it looks nice there. And the buildings look nice there in Braselton. I don't see what the deal is. 211 is a highway, and I don't see sidewalks on any other highways. I guess Braselton authorities want folks to walk to Winder.
