Airpark Subdivision Drawing Opposition Peachtree City, has a contract By Bryan Ctr More than 20 local resi- dents showed up at the coun- ty planning board meeting Thursday morning to voice their opposition to the newly proposed airpark and subdi- vision located on the Corinth Road and Norwood Road. Lexington Airpark is a 62- lot residential subdivisiorL , The development would have a grass runway for light aircraft and hangars at most residences. The homes Would sell between $250,000 and $400,000. noise seemed to the prob- lem with most of the resi- dents who oppose the new development. John Cranston said he opposed the  because of the noise, but had no prob- lem with the homes. Another resident, Randy MeWorter, said he gave the planning board a petition list with 145 names on it oppos- ing the measure. Developer Wayne Sutton, president of Construction Service Associates in to purchase 161 acres from Claude Raptis of Grantville, contingent on 40 acres being rezoned from residential to agricultural. The planning board rec- ommended the rezoning be approved by the Troup County Commissioners by a 5-1 vote Wesley Duffey cast the lone vote against the rezoning. If approved by the com- missioners, the developer will have to go before the planning board on June 13 to get permission for the air- field, which is a conditional use in agricultural zoning. Sutton said under the cur- rent zoning, the property could be developed for 125- 130 single family residences on one-acre lots. He added that this would create more traffic, noise and activity for the local people than what the 62 we're pro- posing. Sutton added that Lexington Airpark will gen- erate more tax base to the county and it will be an asset to the county and not a liabil- ity.
