City Council to hear zoning appeal in March


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

The appeal of a zoning decision affecting a planned hotel on the north side of Roswell has been scheduled for March.

City Clerk Sharon Coll said the City Council is due to consider the zoning case appeal that concerns the former Avamere senior living facility at 2801 N. Kentucky Ave. at its March meeting.

City Council meetings occur on the second Thursday of the month, so the appeal is expected to be heard March 12. City Council meetings begin at 6 p.m. and are held at the Roswell Convention & Civic Center, 912 N. Main St.

Narendra Mistry of Roswell became the owner of the property at 2801 N. Kentucky Ave. after Avemere and its partners closed the senior facility in September 2019. Mistry intends to convert the site into a 131-room hotel. His application to have the property rezoned from R-3 Residential to C-2 Community Commercial was approved Jan. 28 by a 4-3 vote of the city of Roswell Planning & Zoning Commission.

The zoning application had been opposed by numerous people living nearby who expressed concerns at the commission meeting about noise, traffic, effects on property values and a possible increase in criminal activity in the area. On Jan. 30, the president of the homeowners association of Quail Village, just to the south of Mistry’s property, filed an appeal with the city clerk, which brings the matter before the 10-member City Council.
