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.
