Penny suggests study, incentives for building single-family homes
Instead of freeze on apartment construction
Statesboro City Council in November 2018 approved a zoning change allowing the Stonewalk Companies to build a five-story, $50 million complex with four floors of apartments in place of University Plaza at the Chandler Road-Georgia Avenue intersection. The last official movement was a demolition permit issued last fall.
Statesboro’s city government has not imposed a moratorium on construction of new apartment complexes but may instead order a housing study and fund initiatives to promote construction of more single-family homes.
