Environmental Impacts:The property does not lie within the floodway and floodplain area. The developer will need an approved drainage plan prior to issuance of a Site Development permit, if a permit is required.
City Services:Properties are served by all city services.
Traffic Impact:The traffic impact for the project was determined by looking at a convenience store with gas sales using 8 pumps. Talbotton road is scheduled to be widened within the next year. This segment will be four lane, which will change the level of service (LOS) to B. Projections have this section dropping to a LOS of C. This would take it to the current level of service we see today. This site is compliant with all the new right-of-way (ROW) for the Talbotton Road improvement and is in compliance with GDOT setbacks from the future right-of-way.
