REZONING APPLICATIONS #Z18-23 & Z18-24, ALICE TRIPPLETT & DAVID MILLSAPS
Vice-Chairman Layson read rezoning applications #Z18-23 & #Z18-24, Alice Tripplett and David Millsaps, requesting to rezone 1.67 acres and 1.97 acres, each with existing homes, located at 8354 Red Bud Road, Ranger from A-1 to R-1 to bring into compliance with zoning. Environmental Health Services noted for both applications that a septic permit was issued to Ms. Tripplett on 10/12/10 on the 1.67 acre tract and she was instructed that this property was NEVER to fall under 3 acres. There are no septic records for the mobile home for Mr. Millsaps request, so no information on drain field location if it goes over the proposed line. The division is not approved by Environmental Health. Ursula Richardson, Zoning Administrator for Gordon County, stated that the applicants were suppose to come in and withdraw their applications but had not prior to the meeting and advised the Planning Commission that they should just deny both applications since the applicants could not proceed as far as Environmental Health was concerned.
