The Peachtree City Planning Commission on April 13 approved conceptual site plan submitted by MOBA/USA for an industrial subdivision on a 50-acre site on Ga. Highway 74 South.
Commissioners were told that plans call for an initial phase that includes a two-story building totaling 50,000 sq. ft. to be used for offices and the assembly of electronic equipment and two tournament-size soccer fields on a portion of a 50-acre site across Hwy. 74 from the city’s athletic complex.
The industrial site will be subdivided into nine lots, with MOBA utilizing the 12.62-acre lot on the property’s south side.
The approval came with the conditions that MOBA would be responsible for an eventual easement and the cart path that will cross a portion of the property.
The cart path will connect to the existing multi-use tunnel under Hwy. 74, in close proximity to the two planned soccer fields, which will ultimately allow the path system to interconnect to the city’s athletic complex situated directly across Hwy. 74.
MOBA’s only U.S. office is located in Fayetteville. Project representatives said the company needs more space and wants to relocate in Peachtree City. The company currently employs 20-25 people and expects to double that number.
Representatives said the MOBA executive lives in Peachtree City, has children involved with soccer and wants to have a portion of the site dedicated to men’s soccer for local residents and tournaments, adding that soccer played on the site would not compete with the city’s soccer activities.
The property is bordered on the west by Hwy. 74 and on the east by the Line Creek Nature Area.
The vote on the proposal was 4-0. Commissioner Aaron Daily was not in attendance.
