Bennett, who couldn’t be reached for comment, is requesting the venue as a specific use of the property, which is zoned agricultural-residential.
According to Hall County records, the property has a 1,139-square-foot house built in 1959 and other structures, including a garage and “various accessory structures,” according to a Hall County planning staff report.
Operating as Bennett Farm and Barn, the venue would feature a building that would include outdoor and indoor areas for “smaller or larger groups.”
“The inside of the building would have storage rooms with ample storage for chairs and tables,” Bennett said in her narrative of the project. “The kitchen would have space for catering and floral arrangements. The inside of the building would have beautiful wooden beams and aesthetically could be a casual or formal setting.”
Bennett said events would take place on the weekends, ending at 10 p.m.
Hall planning staff is recommending approval of the venue.
The planning board’s recommendation would go to the Hall County Board of Commissioners for a public hearing and final action on April 22.
