REZONING APPLICATION #Z14-07, THOMAS GROVER LUNSFORD
Chairman Rains read rezoning application #Z14-07, Thomas Grover Lunsford, requesting to rezone .46 acres at 405 Edwards Street, Calhoun, from A-1 to O-I. Mr. Lunsford represented the request explaining that he had purchased the existing house to use as an insurance office but had decided now to just sell it as an office structure. Mr. Lunsford also stated that he had spoke with Mark Williamson, with the City of Calhoun, about connecting to city sewer and there is not a sewer line on Edwards Street and it would be at his expense to connect to the existing sewer line on Highway 53. All adjoining property owners had been notified.
The recommendation from the Gordon County Planning Administrator is that the rezoning request identified as Application #Z14-07 be approved with the stipulation that the developer hook up to the public sewer system to be in compliance with the U.L.D.C. for the land requirement before obtaining a Gordon County Business License or apply for a variance.
Ron Free made the motion to approve the rezoning request identified as Application #Z14-07 from A-1 to O-I with the stipulation stated by the Gordon County Planning Administrator to connect to the public sewer system or apply for a variance before a business license could be issued. Jerry Lovelace seconded the motion. All voted aye. The recommendation for approval was sent to the Board of Commissioners.
There being no additional business, Ron Free made the motion to adjourn. Jerry Lovelace seconded the motion. All voted aye. The meeting was adjourned at 6:20 p.m.
