Economic agency plans 2015 push for southwest Cherokee

January 12, 2015

The head of the Cherokee County Office of Economic Development said multiple initiatives are underway to make the county’s southwestern edge a more robust work center in 2015.

The area around Ga. 92 And Interstate 75, has historically been “kind of forgotten,” said Misti Martin. It will see improved DOT signage along I-75 at the Ga. 92 exit as well as a branding, signage and beautification effort taking shape along the state highway between the interstate and Woodstock Road.

Further development of the nearby Cherokee 75 Corporate Park will be a linchpin. Among planned short-term developments: the agency’s buying 35 additional acres for the park, selling 25 acres to a company which plans a spec building and the pending announcement that a German firm will locate there.

Martin said the area’s advantages include proximity to Atlanta and the interstate and plenty of developable land.
