Inventory and Needs Assessment - Fayette County Government

2.1.2 Future

2.1.2 Future Land Use Patterns The County’s vision for future growth is based on preservation of its existing rural character, and the future land use policies of the County’s Comprehensive Development Plan are intended to uphold this vision. As a result, much of the County is designated to support future residential development at densities of one dwelling unit per acre or less. The principal exceptions to this countywide vision are in the existing incorporated municipalities, where residential densities are somewhat higher, and in areas that the municipalities have identifi ed for future annexation. These include an area immediately west of the present city limits of Fayetteville, identifi ed for future development of a hospital-medical offi ce complex that would also include retail space and residential units. Future Land Use and the Region Fayette County future land use policies are notably oriented to preserving the County’s defi ning characteristics of open space, estate-style single-family housing and a rural and agricultural landscape. It was noted that growth in the county has been steady and the county and cities can currently keep up with necessary infrastructure demands generated by growth. The primary growth goal for the county and cities is to grow at a reasonable rate that allows them to maintain the current quality of life. However, a strain is being placed on the county by growth and development occurring on its borders in adjacent counties. Intensive development, particularly warehouse/distribution facilities in southern Fulton County are greatly impacting SR 74, which is a primary corridor used by county residents to access Interstate 85. Substantial growth in eastern Coweta County is expected to impact the county with regard to increased traffi c congestion. As mentioned previously, future residential development in the unincorporated portion of the county is set by policy to be at densities of one dwelling unit per acre or less. The primary reason for this policy direction is based in infrastructure: the County does not operate or intend to construct central sewer facilities, and individual residential lots must operate on septic tank wastewater systems. The cities of Fayetteville and Peachtree City both have central wastewater engineering infrastructure in place and can consequently attract increased density, but will likely remain less dense than many other cities in the region. Peachtree City and the county seek to attract ‘clean industries’ and professional jobs while maintaining existing manufacturing base. Fayette Forward Inventory & Needs Assessment Chapter 2 6
