Ola Updates June 2023

New Subdivisions

Right now, there are three new subdivisions under construction off or near North Ola Road. They include the following:

  • 104 lots behind the Publix shopping center, owned by AMH for rental property. Learn More
  • 134 new homes on 115 acres located south of The Farm Road, and
  • 287 lots on 220 acres off Snapping Shoals Road, owned by Quinn Residences for rental property. Learn More

In addition, three proposed subdivisions are pending a rezoning decision. There is no date set when these properties will go before the board of commissioners (BOC). They are as follows:

  • 106 acres at the northwest corner of state route 81 and North Ola Road, proposing a mixture of single-family homes, townhomes and quadraplexes. Learn More
  • 244 acres south of state route 81 at Keys Ferry Road, requesting a new single-family subdivision. Learn More
  • 210 acres north of state route 81 at Keys Ferry Road, proposing a new single-family subdivision. Learn More

The three projects above have presented to the zoning board. They must next go before the BOC for a final zoning decision.

Commercial Development

Right now, there are two pending commercial requests. Both are near state route 81 at Upchurch Road. They are proposing the following:

  • a gas station and retail space at the northeast corner of SR 81 and Upchurch Road. Learn More
  • two food and drink restaurants on SR 81 east of Jake Lewis Drive. Learn More

Like the residential requests, these cases must present to the BOC for a final decision. Some applicants are waiting six months to more than a year between the zoning board and county commissioners’ meeting.

Finally, two outparcels are nearly complete at the Publix grocery store. They will be a new car wash and doctor’s office. According to real estate materials, the doctor’s office will be a Neuragenex Treatment Center. They offer non-narcotic and non-surgical chronic pain treatment options.
