The Braselton Planning Commission recommended approval on Monday of a request to annex and rezone a former church sanctuary to make way for a commercial development.
Braselton Acquisitions and Development, LLC, asked that a total of 3.39 acres at the intersection for Ga. Hwy. 124 and Ga. Hwy. 211 be annexed into the town from Barrow County and zoned for general commercial in Braselton.
Sharon Baptist Church was once located on the property, but moved its services to Auburn last year. The site — located at 983 Ga. Hwy. Hwy. 124 — has been listed on the real estate market for a potential commercial project.
