The budget is rather slim tonight. But you never know with this bunch.
At an afternoon work session, the commissioners heard from Woodstock officials about a proposed outlet mall there called The Outlet Shoppes at Atlanta.
At its Dec. 13 meeting, the Woodstock City Council unanimously approved a request from Horizon Group Properties to move forward with the proposed 365,000-square-foot outlet mall at the intersection of Ridgewalk Parkway and Interstate 575, according to a news release from Horizon.
Woodstock is requesting $700,000 from the county for assistance with Ridgewalk Parkway improvements. Woodstock officials suggested using a portion of the $3 million in SPLOST funds that will probably not go to the Arnold Mill by-pass.
Another outlet mall in unincorporated Cherokee County is proposed at Hwy. 92/ I-75.
The commissioners took no action.
