GDOT, Not Oconee County, Has Final Authority For Presbyterian Homes Exit And Entrance On U.S. 441, Public Works Director Says

Regardless Of Condition Imposed

The Oconee County Board of Commissioners last night placed a condition on the rezone it approved for Presbyterian Homes of Georgia in order to control the movement of traffic from the site onto U.S. 441 until a traffic light is installed.

Before the vote, Oconee County Public Works Director Emil Beshara advised the Board that much of what will be done at the continuing care retirement community’s main entrance and exit on U.S. 441 is not under the control of the county.
