A plat request and a zoning change were approved Tuesday evening during the monthly meeting of the Bradley County Regional Planning Commission.

Commissioners took less than 10 minutes to unanimously approve the two agenda items. The first item was for a preliminary subdivision plat for Grayson Ridge Phase II on Lauren Way. The subdivision is located on the west side of Dalton Pike about 1.5 miles south of Red Hill Valley Road S.E. Water will be provided by Ocoee Utilities and electricity by Volunteer Energy Cooperative. Sewage will be treated by individual septic systems.

Plans show the 26-acre site divided into 34 lots. Each lot is between a half and one acre in size. Grayson Ridge is owned and under development by The Trinity Factor LLC of Cleveland.

Bradley County Planner Corey Divel said Grayson Ridge Phase II was presented to planning commissioners about five years ago. At that time, the development required a variance because of a 17 percent grade in the road up a hill. This time, the road wraps around the hillside.

“They probably lost a couple of lots, but this is a much better plan,” he said.

Commissioners also unanimously approved a request by Bradley Veterinary Hospital to rezone an adjacent lot from R-1 (Rural Residential) to C-1 (Rural Commercial).

Dr. Jerry Bancroft said earlier in the day that the veterinary clinic bought the .75 acres adjacent to the animal hospital at 5527 Georgetown Rd. with the understanding it was already zoned C-1.

Bancroft said the clinic needed the property rezoned since a project to widen Georgetown Road will take in part of the corner lot the clinic is located on. He said there are no particular plans at this point.

“The adjacent lot will just give us room to expand,” he said.
