5/14/2012 Planning & Zoning Commission Minutes

MAY 14, 2012

The Gordon County Planning Commission held a Public Hearing on Monday, May 14, 2012 at 6:00 p.m. in the Conference Room of the Gordon County Administration Building for the purpose of hearing variance and zoning change requests.

Chairman Talley called the meeting to order and advised all present of the sign-up sheets available for those who wish to address the Planning Commission on any of the zoning or variance change applications.


A motion was made by Ron Free to approve the minutes of the previous meeting of April 9, 2012. Randy Rule seconded the motion. All voted aye. The minutes were approved as written.

REZONING APPLICATION #Z12-01, BOBBIE FAIN (Tabled from April 9, 2012)

Chairman Talley read rezoning application #Z12-01, Bobbie Fain requesting to rezone 4.846 acres located on Highway 225/Chatsworth Hwy., Calhoun, GA from A-1 to RA-1. The property is located on Highway 225 on left just past 2518 Highway 225. Rebecca Brown, a local realtor, represented the application stating that the reason they were asking for the rezoning was because they had a possible buyer earlier and that the owner, Bobbie Fain, felt it would be best to go ahead and acquire the correct zoning for the next interested party. Chairman Talley allowed the concerns from the previous meeting of adjoining property owners, Dottie and Ken Crawford, to be read for the record. The Crawford’s feared that whoever bought this property may put a mobile home on the property which would decrease the value of their home. All adjoining property owners had been notified.

Planning Staff for Gordon County recommends that the rezoning request identified as Application #Z12-01 be approved.

Ron Free made the motion to send the zoning request to the Board of Commissioners without a recommendation because of the possible confusion to the time change of the meeting and that the Crawford’s might be planning on attending at 7:00 p.m. Randy Rule seconded the motion. All voted aye. The zoning request #Z12-01 requesting to rezone from A-1 to RA-1 was sent to the Board of Commissioners without a recommendation.


There being no additional business, Ron Free made the motion to adjourn. Randy Rule seconded the motion. All voted aye. The meeting was adjourned at 6:27 p.m.
