Planners to review PTC annex proposal Monday

A proposal to annex undeveloped 77 acres just outside south Peachtree City to make room for a relocating industry will be considered by the city’s planning commission Monday night.

The planners will also be considering restrictions on walking advertisements at the behest of the City Council. The commission meets at City Hall at 7 p.m.

The annexation proposal is for Low Temp, which is currently located in Jonesboro and manufactures kitchen equipment for use in hospitals, restaurants and schools across the nation.

Low Temp is looking at building on undeveloped land at the city’s southern limit off Ga. Highway 74 across from Redwine Road. The site is located just south of the city’s Meade Field recreation complex, and Low Temp is seeking access to the city’s sewer system.

The annexation, if approved, would also require a rezoning to an industrial classification.

The property is currently located in unincorporated Fayette County and is zoned for a combined shopping center and office complex. That zoning, which happened back in 2000, was opposed by the city based on the proximity of the Wilshire Pavilion less than a half mile to the north which at the time was in its infancy.

Low Temp expects to bring 165 jobs to the city and their new site will allow them to improve efficiency and also have room to grow, company officials have said.
