Statesboro City Council pauses annexation for drainage, density concerns
City of Statesboro seal
Asked by developers to annex 14 more acres along S&S Railroad Bed Road near Cawana Road and the S&S Greenway trail, Statesboro City Council hit the pause button with questions about housing density and drainage. The application, presented to the council Tuesday night with recommendations from the Planning Commission and city planning staff, came from W&L Developers, a limited-liability corporation represented at the council meeting by one of the owners, John White. This area, south of U.S. Highway 80 East beyond the bypass, has been the main growth spot for the city's boundaries the past two years.
