Developer Tom Reese once again swatted away any notions that his mega-development of McIntosh Village was off track.

The 1,500-acre development, located on McIntosh Trail in unincorporated Coweta County, would be one of the region’s biggest developments with more than 3,100 homes and 600,000 sq.ft of office space.

“Every government agency has signed off on this proposal, and we’ll be moving dirt by the end of the year,” Reese said Wednesday, while attending a conference at Callaway Gardens.

One of the biggest issues facing the development is the disposal of its wastewater. While Reese said he could do a land application system on his development site, he’s waiting to see how negotiations progress between the city of Senoia and Coweta County.

Senoia recently received approval for an additional two million gallons of wastewater treatment capacity, and is in negotiation with the county over providing one million gallons for McIntosh Village.

“That’s between the city and the county, and we’ll wait to see what happens,” Reese said.

Reese said he sghould be submitting construction plans to the county in the next few weeks.
