Protect Putnam County residential areas!
I have lived and worked in Putnam County for more than 10 years and love its natural beauty and rural feel. I would like to see our community protected from unnecessary commercial sprawl. It can be stopped now!
A gas station located at the top of our quiet and peaceful cove was suddenly torn down in 2011 and that local small “business” was enlarged. Most citizens in the area were not aware of what was happening at that time and now wish they had been better informed.
This one-time small gas station now houses a large, 10-pump gas station, convenience store, fast food restaurant (Subway), Oconee Outdoors Store, a jet ski and boat rental business, Freedom Boat Club, and in addition, added a storage facility known as Fish Tale Marina that houses 200 boats. This boat storage property fronting the lake was once residential. How and when that rezoning changed is a mystery.
