Fayetteville City Council members have given the go-ahead for engineering work to commence so that the city can extend its sewer line onto the Georgia Military College’s Veterans Parkway campus, which was recently annexed into the city and rezoned for commercial use.
Director of Public Services Chris Hindman said GMC has agreed to repay the city for engineering and construction costs associated with the sewer line extension, which in total could run nearly $172,000. He said GMC would pay the money back in five annual installments.
Currently, one of the city’s sewer lines extends to Sandy Creek Road on the back side of the hospital property. The extension would run north along Sandy Creek Road and then west to the back side of the GMC property.
Hindman noted that the sewer extension would potentially serve other future developments in the newly annexed areas as well.
The GMC campus backs up to Piedmont Fayette Hospital, and it sits across and down the street from Pinewood Atlanta Studios. College officials say they hope to build by spring, and they hope to be offering classes in their own facility by the fall quarter of 2015.
