CAC office on Skipper Bridge Rd. + a Wal-Mart on Bemiss Rd? @ GLPC 2016-02-29

Finally with the agenda for tonight’s Planning Commission, case codes and an address for the 3-in-1 Bemiss Road rezoning, but still no address for the CAC Skipper Bridge Road rezoning, and none of the board packet: no maps, text, nothing else on Lowndes county’s website, for tonight’s 6PM Planning Commission Regular Session.

Center of three properties: 4196 Bemiss Rd. That Valdosta three-part case includes an annexation request. The agenda says it’s for Gusto Development, but no such company is registered with the Georgia Secretary of State. Maybe they mean Gusto GA Valdosta (Guest), LLC, registered “12/8/2015” with Principal Office Address: 736 Cherry St., Chattanooga, TN, 37402, USA. That’s the address of The Hutton Company, “We Know Dirt; Real Estate Development Construction”. The land is owned by Bassford Properties LLC, as noted in the previous post with the LAKE videos of the previous week’s Work Session, which shows what little the public was allowed to know, such as that it’s for a grocery store and a gas station. This might be a clue as to which company: Alex Green,, 9 November 2014, 3 new grocery stores coming to Chattanooga, and they may be Wal-Marts,

Wal-Mart Neighborhood Markets, first introduced in 1998, are only one-fourth the size of a typical Walmart Supercenter in the United States and offer about 28,000 grocery items.

A developer who has built Neighborhood Markets around the South is seeking rezoning for three new grocery outlets in Chattanooga. The company, Polestar Development, is a subsidiary of the Chattanooga-based Hutton Co., and looking to build at an old community pool lot in East Ridge, on a flat lot tucked between Heritage Park and an old strip mall off East Brainerd Road and at a grassy, flat lot next to a church in a flood-prone area between Brainerd and the sprawling retail district of Highway 153.

Sounds very similar to this Bemiss Road site just north of Cherry Creek. And Hutton Co. built a Wal-Mart in Athens, GA, too.
