The Lawrenceville, Ga., City Council recently approved a series of rezoning conditions and a special-use permit to allow local builder GS Construction Inc. to develop a self-storage facility at 530 Lyle Circle. The project was assigned several stipulations including restrictions on building height and hours of operation, according to the source.
The council limited the building to two stories and operation hours to between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m., Monday through Friday. It also specified the business can’t operate after 5 p.m. on Saturdays, and no “outside activity” will be allowed on Sundays, the source reported.
A 50-foot buffer with trees will be placed between the facility and neighboring residential areas. The council provided guidelines for the types of trees to be planted and ordered the buffer area remain free of underbrush, vines and weeds. It also won’t be allowed to return to its natural state, according to the source. The property must also include perimeter fencing.
The building site is adjacent to the GS Construction office. Founded in 1996, the company is primarily a utilities contractor specializing in capital-improvement projects related to roadwork, storm drains, sewer and water, according to its Facebook page.
