Caterpillar submitted site development plans to the Oconee County Planning Department on Friday that call for buildings totaling 900,723 square feet, for 484,085 square feet of paved area, and for 6,692 square feet of sidewalks.
The total impervious area for the plant, on the eastern edge of Bogart, will be 1,391,500 square feet, covering about 13 percent of the roughly 250-acre site, according to the documents.
Additional acreage will be set aside for storm water collection ponds and for preservation of wetlands. Some of the storage area around the plant will be covered with gravel, rather than paved.
The building size, consistent with an earlier plan, is about 300,000 square feet smaller than proposed back in February.
The submitted plans are tentatively set to be reviewed by the Development Review Committee May 23.
