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: henrycounty-ga.com.
