REZONING APPLICATION #Z19-21, BAGWELL FAMILY, LLC
Chairman Rule read rezoning application #Z19-21, Bagwell Family, LLC, requesting to rezone a 10.002-acre tract located at 315 Gallman Ave., Calhoun from A-1 to I-2. William Smith, a partner with Bagwell Family, LLC represented the request explaining that they would like to subdivide and rezone this property to be used to recycle wood and brush and bring in a rollback truck about 3-4 times a week to unload the debris from land clearing that will be stored in the open air so no storage building will be built. He added that they would bring a mobile chipper in about every 3 months to chip into mulch, then load and transport to the Inland Paper Company for the boiler. The existing houses will be torn down. All adjoining property owners had been notified.
Jerry Lovelace made the motion to approve the rezoning application identified as #Z19-21 from A-1 to I-2, with the stipulation that if the business ceases to exist then the zoning would revert back to A-1. Nathan Serritt seconded the motion. Eddie Smith voted with the motion. Butch Layson abstained from the vote. The vote was 3-0 for approval. The recommendation for approval was sent to the Board of Commissioners.
VARIANCE APPLICATION #V19-17, DOUGLAS SIEMER
Chairman Rule read variance application #V19-17, Douglas Siemer. Ursula Richardson, Zoning Administrator announced that this Variance Application had been withdrawn, and no further action will be required from the Planning Commission.
There being no additional business, Nathan Serritt made the motion to adjourn. Jerry Lovelace seconded the motion. All voted aye. The meeting was adjourned at 6:15 p.m.
