Chairman Rule read rezoning application #Z21-34, Industrial VI Enterprises, LLC (appl.) and Johnnie Dobson and Laura Dobson – co-executors for the estate of Melvin Dobson (owner), requesting to rezone a 76.17 acre tract located South of the intersection of Union Grove Road and Hwy. 53, Adairsville from A-1 to I-1. William Valentine with Industrial VI Enterprises, LLC represented the request, along with Austin Kriz explaining that the plan for this property is to build an 840,000 square foot warehouse, with an extension to water and sewer from the City of Calhoun. They have been negotiating a resolution for the entrance and will build a frontage road that will run parallel to Highway 53 that can be used for future developments access and that a traffic light will be requested from the County Road Department to the Georgia D.O.T. The applicant will fund the cost for the frontage road, traffic light, and water/sewer extension. Karen Capehart, an adjoining property owner, spoke in opposition to the increase of noise, traffic, and water run-off. Mr. Kriz explained that the civil engineers see the water run-off going to the west side of the property away from the Capehart property. All adjoining property owners had been notified.
