Zoning commission to reconsider plans for north Macon bowling center

Macon’s zoning commission is expected to reconsider Monday an application that would allow a bowling center to be built in north Macon.

A conditional-use application has been filed for 4318 Sheraton Drive that would allow the bowling center in the planned development district.

The commission approved a similar proposal at the same location in January 2008.

The 44,280-square-foot proposed bowling alley, called Pin Strikes Bowling Center, would have 32 bowling lanes, a snack bar, bumper cars, laser tag, billiard tables and a party room, according to the commission’s staff report. Customer parking would provide 244 spaces.

The matter was discussed at the April 13 meeting, but it was deferred until Monday to give the applicant an opportunity to revise the site plan to include a second ingress/egress to the site or provide information from the county that the existing plan was appropriate.

The staff report states that an email from the county engineer’s office and the traffic engineer says that the singular drive is adequate.

In another matter, the commission is expected to consider a conditional-use application that would allow a bank at 1510 Bass Road.

According to information provided to the staff by Dan Wallace, an engineer with Triple Point Engineering Inc., a bank plans to build a two-story, 10,900-square-foot building on a 1.24 acre site on Bass Road at the entrance to Providence subdivision.

The letter states the office would be occupied by Fidelity Bank, a subsidiary of Atlanta-based Fidelity Southern Corp., which has banking offices in Georgia and Florida and an insurance office in Atlanta.

The meeting begins at 1:30 p.m. in the 10th floor conference room at the Willie C. Hill Government Center Annex, 682 Cherry St.
