REZONING APPLICATION #Z15-01, RONNIE HUDSON
Chairman Rule read rezoning application #Z15-01, Ronnie Hudson, requesting to rezone 3.60+/- acres located at 3674 Rome Road, SW, Plainville, GA from A-1 to C-G. Mr. Hudson represented the request explaining that he had been approached by a potential buyer for 2 acres of his property to construct a convenience store and that even if the sale did not happen, he still needed to rezone the property since he pays commercial taxes on it. Chairman Rule inquired if he understood the requirements that would need to be met before the construction could begin. Ursula Desrosier, Zoning Administrator for Gordon County, also added that even if the sale did not take place that Mr. Hudson needed to be aware that he could not use a commercially zoned property for auto salvage storage, as it had been used for many years before. Mr. Bhulla Singh, the potential buyer, explained his plan for the convenience store and that he understood he would have to satisfy all applicable codes for Gordon County. All adjoining property owners had been notified.
Ursula Desrosier, Zoning Administrator for Gordon County, recommended that the rezoning request identified as Application #Z15-01 be approved, with the following conditions: All applicable state and local regulations shall be complied with, including but not limited to Gordon County appearance standards for structure in commercial zoning districts, landscaping and buffer requirements, and sign requirements.
Nathan Serritt made the motion to approve the rezoning application identified as #Z15-01 from A-1 to C-G as requested. Jerry Lovelace seconded the motion. All voted aye. The recommendation for approval was sent to the Board of Commissioners.
There being no additional business, Jerry Lovelace made the motion to adjourn. Eddie Smith seconded the motion. All voted aye. The meeting was adjourned at 6:15 p.m.
