A 72-acre subdivision in Grovetown got the final approval of the city council last week.
Eden subdivision, being proposed by Brush and Company, would be built on property between Old Thomson and Old Berzelia Road. The city council unanimously approved Ben Brush's request to rezone the land from residential use to planned development use.
However, some residents of Reynolds Farm Road, which runs off of Old Berzelia, complained that the rezoning of the property was not properly posted and that the development would create traffic headaches in the area.
More space needed
The solution to the cramped space at the Columbia County Board of Education central offices could be a 16,000-square-foot, two-story complex that would house personnel, business and administrative services.
"The biggest question would be where would we put it," Mr. Price said. "There was some discussion of putting it at Evans Middle School, which is property we already own."
The central office is currently in Appling, while some offices, such as technology and personnel, are located in the old Grovetown elementary school. Under the proposal, those facilities would still be used.
After administration was moved to a new building, psychological, special services and technology would move out of the Grovetown building and into the two buildings in Appling. The department of curriculum services would remain at its current location in Grovetown.
