Mall, Library on BOC's Agenda
Among other things, the board will consider an intergovernmental agreement with Woodstock for road improvements along Ridgewalk Parkway in conjunction with an outlet mall project.
At their regular meeting tonight, the county commissioners will consider buying land for a new $5 million library in Lathemtown.
The 6.14 acres is located on State Route 20 and Old Mill Road and will cost $170,000.
The board will also consider an intergovernmental agreement with Woodstock for road improvements along Ridgewalk Parkway in conjunction with an outlet mall project.
At the Dec. 20, commission meeting, Woodstock officials asked the county for $700,000 to assist them with improvements to Ridgewalk Parkway. They suggested using a portion of the $3 million in SPLOST funds earmarked for the Arnold Mill bypass. The money will likely not go to the bypass.
In January, the board agreed to give Woodstock the money.
Construction on The Outlet Shoppes at Atlanta was slated to begin in the first half of this year, according to a Dec. 13 news release from Horizon Group Properties, the Michigan company that plans to develop the 365,000-square-foot mall at Ridgewalk Parkway and Interstate 575.
