Jonquil, Olde Ivy Villages on Council's Agenda

Both Smyrna development projects have submitted altered site plans for approval by the City Council.

The Smyrna City Council will look at and vote on the amended site plans of two developments in the city during their meeting Monday evening.

The development teams behind the latest iteration of the Jonquil Village project and the Old Ivy Village project have submitted altered site plans for approval by the city during this meeting. 

Jonquil Village's new site plan (which may be downloaded from this article) has done away with the grocery store and underground parking features from the original 2007 plan, but has become wholly privately-funded. The site plan, if approved, will contain 288 apartment units and more than 24,500 sq. ft. of retail space.

Old Ivy Village, which is situated at the intersection of South Cobb Drive and the East-West Connector, will bring in the city's first organic grocer. Sprouts Farmers Market will set up in a 28,000 sq. ft. anchor building and be joined by 18,400 sq. ft of retail and office space. Race Trac and Krispy Kreme Donuts will neighbor the main development.

Although the city's community development department has recommended approval of the Old Ivy Village site plan unconditionally, Jonquil Village's site plan was approved with conditions.

In order for the Jonquil Village plan to get the green light from the city, developers Branch Capital Partners must complete a traffic analysis of the site and assign traffic mitigation responsibilities as necessary. Branch must also provide transportation improvements to the area under their jurisdiction.

Monday evening's meeting of the Smyrna City Council will begin at 7:30 p.m. and be held at Smyrna City Hall. Smyrna-Vinings Patch will provide a link to a live online broadcast of the meeting if you are unable to attend the meeting in person or watch it on Charter Cable channel 19.
