Who are these crazy people that have/had given up on Fayette County? Huh? What? How?

I'm just curious to know what has been said...
You obviously don't read the Citizen. Publisher Cal Beverly has been feeding his band of a angry white guy bloggers with front page doom and gloom stories for years.

PTC and most of the county has been doing fine, but I have just had this uneasy feeling. For awhile I was thinking the only thing that will keep this a desirable county will be the land use plan and PTC.
The land use plan and the schools will keep Fayette County desirable. And now this.

Peachtree City is on it's own.

This is great for Fayette County as well as the whole state. Wonder why they didn't go to California... I guess because the regulation and taxes. Just like why BMW went to SC and Mercedes to AL over MI.

Hopefully GA residents are smarter than to buy into the garbage CA and MI politicians sold. The business climate has gotten better in Michigan with the elimination of the MBT that Granholm introduced, Snyder is what MI needs to get back up. I don't see CA having as much luck as MI, being that the state is is so blue. I feel bad for the NY State cities getting stuck with the crap people down in NYC vote for.

From the AJC article:

Quote:
Opening with an initial 305,000 square feet of space, the Fayette complex will dwarf other area film studios because it will have a lot of room to expand... As it stands now, EUE/Screen Gems’ 33-acre facility in the nearby Lakewood area of Atlanta is one of the largest stages in the country at 37,500 square feet, according to state film office data. It has a total of five sound stages, offering more than 150,000 square feet of production space.
Quote:
In addition to churning out films, the state-of-the-art complex in Fayette will at some point serve as a training ground for new filmmakers, lighting and grip professionals and other film industry workers. That training is a partnership between the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Local 479 and Clayton State University, which is in the process of opening a film school. The state ends up having to bring in film workers from North Carolina, California and Louisiana when productions are done here.
Quote:
Unlike filmmaker Tyler Perry’s studio, which is considered proprietary, the Fayette facility will be open to anyone wanting to film in Georgia.
“It’ll operate much like a convention center,” Forshee said.
NOICE!

Japanese manufacturer to open Peachtree City facility - Atlanta Business Chronicle

Another (albeit smaller) win for Fayette County. The area has always had a surprisingly close tie with Japan, or so I've noticed.

Default Update!!!

Adjacent property owners are lining up for annexations and rezonings, no surprise. But the domino affect of this is still rather mind boggling. An historic game-changer for Fayette County.
