Is Price Drive in Locust Grove an appropriate location for a new apartments and townhome development? That’s the question being asked of the city council by a new rezoning request.

Tellus Partners, LLC of Chamblee, GA is proposing a new apartments and townhome project on fifty acres. The developer will present their project during a public hearing on Monday night, September 19. The city council meeting takes place at the public safety building starting at 6 pm.

Price Drive Apartments

The proposed Price Drive apartments, entitled “The Exchange at Locust Grove,” is proposing 332 apartments and 56 townhomes. The applicant is seeking a rezoning to PD (planned development) to support their project.

The property is located behind (north of) Dairy Queen, Horsetown and the various hotels off Bill Gardner Parkway. Road access would be via Price Drive.

The public hearing provides the developer an opportunity to present their case to the city council. Area residents can also speak in favor or against the proposed development. The Locust Grove council considers whether to approve a rezoning request at its next meeting, typically two weeks later.

Last month, the city council approved a rezoning request behind Hampton Inn on Tanger Blvd. The 300-unit project will be the first market-rate apartments within the city of Locust Grove.
