Mixed-Used Development at Tara Field Breaks Ground In Spite of Opposition from Clayton County

The $300 million aviation-driven mixed-use development for 97 acres at Clayton County Airport-Tara Field in Hampton has broken ground and is “not going to stop” in spite of opposition from recently reelected Clayton County Commission Chairman Eldrin Bell.  “If Clayton County wants to stop us, I suggest they get a court order in Henry County and I do not believe this would go well for the chairman,” challenged Developer Billy Abbate, owner of Big 5 Enterprises LLC.

Although owned by Clayton County, the airport lies entirely inside Henry County. Abbate has received the necessary land disturbance permits from Henry County to breakground.

The project will include an aircraft hanger in addition to residential and retail elements.
