Tyrone okays preliminary plat for business park

The Tyrone Planning Commission at its Thursday meeting voted 3-0 to approve the preliminary plat for the proposed Quarry View Business Park located on 25.11 acres along Ga. Highway 74 north of Carriage Oaks Drive. The 25 acres is part of a 55.8-acre tract that was rezoned earlier this month.

Project representative Rick Sewell said plans call for 12 lots ranging from 1.25-2.5 acres that would provide space for service type businesses.

“We see it as an opportunity for service-related businesses geared toward residents.” Sewell said.

Included in the preliminary plat is an access road that would continue the existing access road that is situated behind the pharmacy, auto detail and auto parts businesses north of Carriage Oaks Drive. Sewell said the Quarry View access road would be a public street.

The new access road would extend north, in parallel to Hwy. 74 but would not extend all the way to Peggy Lane on the northernmost portion of the property. Sewell said the reason for stopping the access short of Peggy Lane is due to the railroad line running just south of Peggy Lane.

Commissioners approved the preliminary plat subject to the expectation that the Georgia Dept. of Transportation will grant a right-in, right-out curb cut onto the property.

The Town Council earlier this month rezoned the 55.8-acre portion of a much larger, 479-acre tract that had been annexed into the town in 1992 as M-2 (Heavy Manufacturing) but, some time in the past, had been coded incorrectly as Agricultural-Residential (A-R). The 25.11-acre property that was the subject of the preliminary plat discussion Thursday is situated on the east side of the 55.8-acre property. The west side of the property has for years been the location of an asphalt plant.

Why not extend the access road to Peggy lane?

It seems kind of silly not to extend the access road to Peggy lane. Avoiding an intersection with the rail line seems like a lame excuse. Rail traffic at this point is extremely low. Highway 74 already intersects with this rail line, so why not the new access road? This decision not to extend the access road to Peggy smells a bit fishy.
