The Oconee Board of Commissioners on Tuesday unanimously approved rezone modifications to allow for a new shopping center called The Market at Meadowlands and a continuing care retirement community that will be named The Village at Meadowlands. The developments will be located off US. 78 across from Prince Avenue Christian School.

Of the retail component, planned is 179,000 square feet of commercial space, which will be anchored by a

65,000-square-foot grocery store.

The senior living component will consist of 517 residential units. There will be a total of 101 independent living units comprised of cottages,  quadraplex buildings, mansion flats buildings, and Meriweather flat buildings.
