Rezone For Publix At Oconee Connector And Mars Hill Road Back Before Oconee County Planning Commission, Board Of Commissioners

***Requesting Entrances On Oconee Connector, Mars Hill Road***

Rezone signs have appeared again on the undeveloped acreage on the northwest corner of the Oconee Connector and Mars Hill Road as the county considers new plans for a Publix Shopping Village and 10 additional commercial lots on the site.

The plans differ in one significant way from those rejected by the Board of Commissioners in May of 2021 when property owner Maxie Price sought to rezone the property for a Publix and a large commercial complex surrounding it.
