Oakwood City Council approves zoning change

POSTED: July 8, 2013 8:28 p.m.

Oakwood City Council voted Monday night to approve rezoning 0.89 acres off Perry Lane at Ga. 53/Winder Highway to a highway business designation from residential.

The property sits near a strip shopping center that faces Winder Highway.

“You’ve got a four-lane highway that’s been recently widened, so I think (the property) can more than accommodate commercial development,” City Manager Stan Brown said.

“This is compatible with our Oakwood comprehensive plan, as we see Winder Highway developing as a commercial corridor.”

Property owner Danny Tatum asked the council for the rezoning change.
