Planners approve distribution center on Athens Highway
Hall County Government Center

A 380,000-square-foot distribution center on Athens Highway near Roy Parks Road in Gainesville was approved by the Hall County Planning Commission on Monday.

The approximately 35-acre property near Eskimo Cold Storage would be rezoned from agricultural residential to light industrial if the Hall County Board of Commissioners approves the request.

County commissioners will vote on the rezoning on Jan. 10.

The facility would handle dry goods and possibly food, but not frozen or refrigerated products.

No one spoke in opposition to the rezoning request at a public hearing Monday.
