One ULDC variance @ ZBOA 2014-05-06 @ ZBOA 2014-05-06

You can see in this video that ZBOA granted the one Lowndes County ULDC variance, for lot access and road frontage.

Even though according to the Lowndes County Tax Assessors’ maps, 3041 Touchton Road doesn’t actually touch Touchton Road, or any other road, it does have a 25 foot easement through adjoining property. The owner wants to record a survey for the property, and perhaps to sell it. The question was whether that existing easement could be used instead of the usual 60 foot easement.

This was one of the briefest ZBOA meetings (14 minutes, of which two and a half were introductory material, since there was only one case, and it was quick to decide. And ZBOA does actually decide, unlike the Planning Commission, which only recommends.

Here’s the agenda. The City of Valdosta puts ZBOA agendas and minutes online in real PDFs.
