A Great Place to Live, Work & Play

Few counties in Georgia offer as much of a contrast as Oconee, with its bustling Highway 316 commercial corridor in the north and its wide-open spaces in the rural south. According to the U.S. Census Bureau Oconee County is one of the fastest growing areas in Georgia growing nearly 35% from 2000-2008. 

The beauty of this is that it’s all by design, says three-term County Commission Chairman Melvin Davis. “We have at-tempted to follow a master land-use plan when it comes to development in Oconee County.” The county’s population now stands at about 33,300
Oconee boasts a number of key economic development advantages, says Oconee County Economic Develop-ment Director Rusty Haygood. At the top of the list is its highly educated workforce and outstanding public school system.

Oconee County is situated in close proximity to a critical mass of highly skilled and highly educated individuals. Not surprisingly, the county’s proximity to the University of Georgia, which is about 15 miles east of the Oconee- Clarke county line in Athens, has a big impact on Oconee’s educational success.

The location, nestled between Athens and Atlanta just off of Highway 316 – or University Parkway, as it’s known – is another key economic development advantage for Oconee County. Four federal highways and seven state highways crisscross the county, providing easy access to and from Atlanta, Athens, Augusta and Macon. This solid transportation infrastructure has been integral to Oconee’s prosperity. 

As reflected in its tagline, “A great place to live, work and play.Oconee County offers residents a high quality of life that longtime residents like Whitfield say is tough to beat. This is just a great area to live and to raise a family. There are wide-open spaces if you like the rural lifestyle, but you can drive just a few miles into Athens and experience major college sports, or just 60 miles to Atlanta to see any professional sporting event you want.

Oconee also boasts an outstanding parks and recreation system that has taken shape under a County Parks and Recreation Master Plan established in 2004. The latest addition to the system is Oconee Veterans Park, a 197-acre park that was opened in 2008 with the dedication of the Oconee County Veterans Memorial. It features lighted soccer/ football fields, softball/baseball fields and tennis courts; a paved walking path; a picnic shelter and playground; and community and senior centers.
 
Attractions include art galleries, an antebellum, trail, garden tours, pick-your-own strawberry and blueberry farms, orchards and a farmers market, Eagle Tavern and the Elder Mill covered bridge, plus Easter egg hunts, Christmas activities and other events.
