Opponents to the Brookhaven apartment building rezoning packed the room, like they did at the Planning Commission meeting the previous night. The Lake Park City Council tabled it, asking the developers to go talk to the citizens.
The annexation request discussed at length at the 10 March 2014 Lowndes County Commission Work Session was on the agenda for last night’s Planning Commission but was withdrawn. It’s still on this agenda.
