Construction at “Grandview at Gateway” off Highway 515 just north of 108 is underway. This is one of many active development projects in the county.



County and city planning leaders say their building departments are going full steam ahead, with an increase in interest from people who want to move or develop in Pickens. There are currently several residential projects underway, as well as some commercial developments and solicitations of interest.   

“As everybody can tell…there’s a whole lot going on in Pickens County Georgia,” Pickens’ Chief Tax Appraiser Roy Dobbs said at the August commissioners work session. “Each week as the deeds come through from the clerk’s office and the surveys come through - it’s a hotbed of activity.”

During the same meeting, Pickens’ Planning & Development Director Justin Kilgore discussed activity in his department. 

“Planning and development is running full steam on permitting,” he said.
