Business Update - New construction on the west side...

Offices, stores and highways on Woodstock’s west side:

The city’s west side is seeing a lot of activity, including stores and offices, which is a result of the highway construction in the last two years. As Mayor Long has often said, “An efficient transportation system is essential to our region’s economic growth. We want other cities sending their young and talented people here, not the other way around”.

A look around the city's west side reveals how quickly the area is expanding with new construction everywhere. Among the most notable development are two shopping centers, office buildings and apartment complexes. Add to this hundreds of new homes and our little city has tripled in population in just a few years.

Office buildings at the Faber Place Executive Center (1), (2), (3) are providing much needed Class 'A' office space for our growing business sector. Phase one consists of two building, with two or three additional buildings planned as the need dictates. This development has caused some heated debate in the planning department between those who want to concentrate large office buildings downtown, and others who feel spreading them out closer to where people live will lessen traffic issues.

Of course not all projects are large, as the Loney Construction Co. illustrates. Dozens of small companies are springing up helping to create a diversified economy. These produce many jobs in a wide variety of skills.

The

Publix Neighborhood Center has a number of these smaller businesses as well and the anchor companies.

My next post will look at the north side of town. See you then.
