Henry County board seeks master plan for ‘megasite’

The Henry County Board of Commissioners voted at its Feb. 5 regular meeting to seek a master plan for a 6,000-acre tract dubbed by officials as the “Megasite of Henry County.”

The effort by a group of consultants will include “branding and marketing strategies, viability, and implementation,” according to the resolution the board approved. Continued growth in the county, in overall numbers as well as diversity, was cited as a primary reason for the move as well as the need for continued planning in the wake of last year’s adoption of a countywide comprehensive land use plan. Studies will include looking at feasibility of potential tax allocation districts and community improvement districts at a variety of locations, along with a proposal for a fixed-base operation at the Henry County Speedway Airport, adjacent to the Megasite land west of Highway 19/41 outside Hampton.

Commissioners approved $252,500 for the consultants, Tunnell-Spangler & Associates.
