The live-work-play Town Center area in Suwanee may get a new feature — from a former City Council member, no less.

According to city documents, a bed and breakfast is planned for the complex that serves as Suwanee’s downtown. A public hearing will be held during the March City Council meeting on Tuesday, March 25, at City Hall, about the matter. And the meeting agenda says that city staff has recommended approval with conditions.

Former Suwanee City Council member Kevin McOmber and his wife, MaLisa, are behind the bed and breakfast project, the agenda says. The “residence with bed and breakfast” would be in the 320 Town Center Avenue area, which is the part of the complex that is nearest Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road.

McOmber left his City Council post last December. He is an engineer by vocation.

A bed and breakfast would be a different feature for Town Center. Already, the park and amphitheater area are a site for several events annually, such as Woofstock, Arts In The Park and Christmas In The Park. Several restaurant and retail shops are in the complex, as well as residential lofts.

City Hall and the park area are owned by the taxpayers, but the retail businesses are controlled by private developer Madison Retail.

The complete agenda for the March City Council meeting in Suwanee is here.
