Oconee County Planning Staff Recommends Big Changes To Plans For Proposed Publix Shopping Center At Mars Hill And Connector

***Only One Full Entrance–On Mars Hill Road Allowed***

The Oconee County planning staff has recommended approval of the rezone request for a shopping center with a Publix at the Oconee Connector and Mars Hill Road on the condition that access to the shopping center be significantly restricted.

The planners have said that entrance to the shopping center off the Oconee Connector should allow only right-in and right-out traffic, rather than the full commercial access requested by property owner Maxie Price.

The planning staff report says that access to the shopping center off Mars Hill Road should be limited to one full-access entrance and two right-in, right-out entrances.
