Bowling center request approved

By this time next year, Peachtree City residents could be hollering “Strike!” as bowling balls glide down wooden alleys.

The bowling alley is part of a proposed family entertainment center located off Widget Drive near the intersection of Ga. Highway 74 and TDK Boulevard. The center passed muster with the Planning Commission last week and could be the latest addition to the city’s entertainment options.

“Today is National Bowling Day and I hope to see you all at the lanes next year at this time,” said developer Robert Matheson Aug.11.

The 42,000 sq.ft. building features 178 parking spaces and internal drives. The conceptual site plan was passed with several conditions including preserving the existing vegetation within the setback area at Widget Drive and having no less than a 10 ft. wide planting area between the sidewalk and the front and side of the building, where possible.

The development will include 28 bowling lanes, and indoor arcade and sports restaurant.
