Lovejoy annexation gets thumbs-down by Henry County commissioners

An annexation request involving the Clayton County city of Lovejoy is apparently dead as far as Henry County is concerned. The Henry County Board of Commissioners voted at its Sept. 8 regular meeting to approve an official objection to the request, which involves a large piece of property on Steele Road, North Steele Drive, Lovejoy Road, Hwy. 81 and Old Highway 3.

The property lies in both counties and a plan is in place for a major development. Since the request involving the Henry County portion has been nixed by the commissioners, the matter is concluded for that portion unless the applicant initiates a court challenge. Information:
