Treatment plant on Peachtree City’s border gets OK

Nearly 41 acres on Fischer Road will soon be the home of a decentralized wastewater treatment facility. The land is next to Wynns Pond and Peachtree City and will use to treat sewerage from a commercial development across Ga. Highway 34.

The area has already been the source of controversy when earlier this year a master plan was unveiled that showed commercial development on three corners of the Fischer Road and Ga. Highway 34 intersection. Because the amount of commercial space was so large, it would be subject to a Development of Regional Impact since Fischers Crossing Development Group owns all four corners and released the master plan.

But later, developer Scott Seymour sent an affidavit to Coweta County s saying there was no master plan and the parcel under consideration t would only be used for the treatment plan and detention ponds.

The Coweta County Commission agreed to rezone the property from Rural Reserve to C-7 Commercial Shopping District with Special Use permit after attaching 11 conditions to the proposal. The conditions included:

• Allowing utilities for sewer connection under Wynns Pond Road with the reestablishment of a buffer area.

• Stipulating that any property not used by Newnan Utilities for wastewater treatment would revert back to a Rural Reserve or Rural Conservation zoning classification.

• Planting a 100-ft. buffer maintained along both sides of Wynns Pond Road.

• Meeting Department of Community Affairs guidelines if a Development of Regional Impact is deemed necessary.

Oh that's nice, just upstream from Peachtree City's drinking water intake and the planned reservoir.
So we can drink water that has already been filtered through someone else's kidneys.
Must have been Lin Wastemoron's idea.

Who's looking out for Fayette County

Let's see what Mayor Logstrom and the Fayette County Commission have done for us:

1. Endorsed TDK-Resulting in (A)massive traffic coming through Peachtree City, (B)business moving from Peachtree City to Coweta's "New Towne"(C)Absolutely no new tax revenue to Fayette..

2.As a result of the TDK inspired growth we will also enjoy a New Sewage treatment plant going in next to Fayette: We can not wait for the new frangerance of this progress COWETA will enjoy.

3. Will somebody please inform me as to who our politicians are looking out for? Is it Fayette or Coweta County or probibly if all the facts ewere known-themselves..

Keep voting Republican, boneheads.

That way the developers and corporations can continue to make decisions for you.

Weak people need that.
