FAYETTEVILLE, GA -- (The Citizen) Time is getting close for the opening of the first businesses at east Coweta County’s new Fischer Crossings commercial development at Fischer Road and Ga. highways 34 and 54, less than a mile west of Peachtree City.

Developer Scott Seymour said the inclement weather and rain-soaked ground around the theater will likely postpone the opening until sometime in March.
