Rezoning hopes to spur industrial development


A rezoning request by South-Tree Enterprises that will provide the opportunity to attract more industrial clients to the 16.6-acre site on Ga. Highway 74 South was approved Feb. 19 by the Peachtree City Council.

South-Tree owner Chuck Oglethorpe said previously that he wanted to sub-divide the 16.6-acre property to be marketed in smaller parcels.

“I have several potentials for the property,” Ogletree told the council prior to the unanimous vote.

The Peachtree City Planning Commission by unanimous vote on Feb. 9 agreed to recommend approval of a request by South-Tree Enterprises to rezone a 16.6-acre tract at the South 74 Industrial Park on Ga. Highway 74 South from GI (general industrial) to LUI-3 (limited use industrial) so the site can be divided into smaller tracts for marketing and financing purposes.

A portion of the property is the location of the Osmose Utility Services office building, warehouse building and testing yard currently under construction.

The Osmose project is situated on the south side of the property, Ogletree said, adding that the company has a long-term lease.
