A 67-townhome development is headed to Oakwood City Council, after the city’s planning commission had a split vote Monday and some debate over garages at the homes.

Oakwood City Council unanimously approved the rezoning for a student housing apartment complex on Atlanta Highway, as well as the annexation and rezoning for a light industrial operation on White Road.
Rezoning for a 50-acre industrial development on W. White Road was approved by the council.
Construction is well underway on an 84-unit affordable housing apartment complex off Atlanta Highway/Ga. 13 in Oakwood.
