Top Five Posts 2022
To finish out our countdown, below are the year’s top five posts. If you missed numbers 6–10, check them out here.
5. Stockbridge Annexation 2022
A proposed annexation in Stockbridge drew significant attention when the initial proposal included 23,000 new residents. Lawmakers would later revise this number down to 6,600 residents before voters approved it in November.
4. New Apartments off Jonesboro Road and Highway 155
Back in January 2022, the zoning advisory board heard proposals for new apartments off Jonesboro Road and highway 155. Entering the new year, both projects are awaiting a final zoning decision by the county.
3. North Ola Road Mixed Use Housing
Similar to the item above, the number three entry on our list is also a proposed development. A proposed housing project off North Ola Road includes townhomes, quadraplexes and single-family homes. It too is awaiting a final decision before the board of commissioners.
2. Early Voting 2022
Election years always generate additional interest in early voting, and 2022 was no exception. The second most popular post of the year was the early voting schedule during the May primaries.
1. I-75 Exit Closure
Finally, the top post of 2022 goes to the closure of I-75 exit 218 last summer. The weekend closure by Georgia DOT allowed the diverging diamond interchange to complete final traffic shifts.
