Filmmaker Tyler Perry's company has apparently purchased more land in Douglasville.

Residents in Tributary at New Manchester have been notified by their homeowners association that Perry's company has purchased more land there, according to the community's website, NewManchester.org.

The purchase by ETPC, LLC is for about 300 acres. Perry wants to ensure privacy around the private residence he is building, according to the HOA letter to Tributary homeowners.

"ETPC’s intended use of the property being purchased is for conservation and the property will likely not be disturbed or developed," the letter reads. "The Tributary land is being purchased by ETPC to ensure view corridors, conservation and privacy."

Residents are promised that portions of the Tributary trail system being sold will be relocated, according to the Web site.

The company previously acquired 856 acres in southeastern Douglas County, east of Mount Vernon Road and just south of Sweetwater Creek State Park.

The purchase set off speculation among nearby residents that Perry could move or expand production operations there. A person who refused to give a name in the office of Perry's publicist stated previously that the property records speak for themselves, but declined to elaborate on plans for the property's use.
