Chairman Hood called the meeting to order.
County Administrator Ledbetter reminded the Board that at the beginning of the Regular Meeting we will take care of the election of the Chair and Vice Chair. Next he explained the rezoning requests and each item on the Regular Meeting agenda to the members of the Board. Administrator Ledbetter also commented on another matter that came before the Board earlier and was tabled by the Board. Rezoning Application #Z20-15 OWR, LLC’s request for rezoning of 50.80 acres on Trimble Hollow Road that was heard by the Board in August of 2020. That rezoning was for the entire tract but was modified in the hearing to just rezone a 10 acre strip on the backside of the property. Now they are asking that this come back before the Board for rezoning of the additional acres for a commercial warehousing project. On all of these South 41 projects, the Development Authority had raised a concern when they learned the magnitude of everything happening on South 41, that there is over 3 million square feet under roof of warehousing and distribution, about 950 employees and maybe a thousand trucks per day, they are concerned that a developmental regional impact study would need to be done with these magnitudes of development.
