While the 247-acre site for the future Caterpillar plant straddles the Clarke and Oconee county line, most of the actual plant will be in Oconee County, according to a preliminary site plan submitted to the Northeast Georgia Regional Commission.
The plan locates the plant mostly in the western part of the tract on the Bogart line.
It shows entrances to the site off U.S. 78 and U.S. 29.
Both of those roadways cross waters of McNutt Creek, but the plant leaves the wetlands undisturbed.
The site plan is part of the application made by the Oconee County Industrial development Authority and the Economic Development Authority of Athens-Clarke County for review as a Development of Regional Impact.
Krista Gridley, a planner in the Oconee County Planning Department, said that the plans submitted to the NEGRC are preliminary. No plans have yet been submitted to the county, she said.
