The Hampton city council annexed nearly two-thousand undeveloped acres into the city this month after passing the first read on October 8 and second read on October 15 for the properties. The annexation increases the city’s land area by 54%.
The annexation expands Hampton’s city limits in a historic direction, now including large portions of land south of Atlanta Motor Speedway. Hampton’s city limits prior to the vote primarily covered areas east of US 19 / 41 largely centered around the historic downtown district and train depot.
The annexation of 1,934.75 +/- acres was submitted by land owners under the 100% annexation method. The annexation request was submitted on October 1 and Henry County notified on October 4. The ten parcels include the following:
|004-01008000||THLJ Investments LLLP, Atlanta, GA||177.49|
|005-01006001||THLJ Investments LLLP, Atlanta, GA||1080.1|

The majority owner, THLJ Investments LLLP, was registered with the Georgia Secretary of State in 1997. Their parcels have been owned by the company since that time.
The properties were zoned RA (residential agricultural) in unincorporated Henry County. The properties will maintain RA zoning in Hampton, but the land owners may submit a rezoning request in one year if they have goals to develop the property.
