The Cherokee County Board of Commissioners approved withdrawing a request for arbitration related to an annexation case involving 75 acres of land at the intersection of Old Doss Lane and Old Doss Drive.

The Cherokee County Board of Commissioners have agreed to halt plans for arbitration with the city of Canton about an annexation case, since the developer has withdrawn its application to the city.

The case involved just over 75 acres of land at the intersection of Old Doss Drive and Old Doss Lane, just north of Highway 20. Plans from developer Old Doss Properties showed the land was being proposed to be annexed into Canton and developed into a residential community of 150 homes.

The developer requested that the application be withdrawn, and the Canton City Council approved the request.

Prior to taking action on allowing the request to be withdrawn, city officials expressed concerns about right-of-way and road improvement issues associated with the development. County officials said some portions of the land did not have an effective buffer, and Old Doss Drive would need to be upgraded to handle anticipated traffic.
