HENRY COUNTY, GA- June 18, 2020—The Henry County Board of Commissioners approved a rezoning request from residential-agricultural to mixed use for property located at West Village Parkway and Bowden Road. The action came at the June 16 Commission meeting.

District V Commissioner Bruce Holmes said he is excited about the new development and said that SPLOST V funds will aid in widening the roadway near that property. 

“The Village Town Center is developing nicely with added density creating economic support and sustainability for our local businesses and developing medical corridor,” said Holmes. “The approved mixed-use development provides much needed diversification with curbside commercial and retail businesses along West Village Pkwy., which is expected to be widened with eight feet paths this fall through SPLOST V.”

Holmes further mentioned what the area had to offer to potential residents and businesses.

“These types of developments are prevalent in East and North Atlanta attracting millennials and seniors who no longer want to live in a home,” he said. “The added rooftops will make Fairview Village more attractive for potential retailers, restaurants and others who are looking to live in a vibrant community with multiple assets that include Village Park, Fairview Recreation Center and Library, the new Performing Arts Center and Panola Mountain Greenway Trail—all located near Downtown Atlanta and Hartsfield Jackson Airport.”
