Last month, Unscheduled: Laverne Gaskins announced she did not want to be reappointed to ZBOA. Fairway got to put its billboard back up at the new overpass, but only at 50 feet high. Plus in the county, a building location variance and a Family Ties variance were both approved unanimously. They meet again today at 2:30PM.
Here’s the agenda for the May 2015 ZBOA meeting, from the City of Valdosta website, plus links into the videos and a few notes, followed by a video playlist. The results are from ZBOA’s own summary, which also says all ZBOA members were present: Paul Alvarado, Laverne Gaskins, Nancy Hobby, Dr. Willie Houseal, Mac McCall, Satrina Plyler, Gretchen Quarterman, Allan Strickland.

- Call to Order
- VAR-2015-07 Franklin Bailey on behalf of N. L. Bassford, Jr. (4150 Ginger Trail, 4144 Ginger Trail, 4325 Wisteria Lane, 4401 Wisteria Lane, 4400 Wisteria Lane, 4401 Summer Hill, 4331 Autumn Ridge, 4320 Sumer Hill, and 4327 Autumn Ridge, Valdosta)
Variance to ULDC Table 01.02 as it pertains to the provisions for building location (minimum building setbacks)
Video. Satrina Plyler had a “conflict of some sort” and recused herself and sat in the audience. Looks like they required setbacks, maintaining back and front yards, and a two-car garage to avoid too much street parking.
(APPROVED with conditions 6-0)
- VAR-2015-08 Rodney Tenery, Jr. on behalf of Marlene Basson (5195 Highway 84 East, Naylor)
Variance to ULDC Chapter 4.04.04 as it pertains to the requirements for Family Ties Land Divisions
- APP-2015-02 Fairway Outdoor Advertising (807 W. Hill Avenue)
Variance to LDR Chapter 230-9 as it pertains to freestanding sign requirements in a Highway Commercial (C-H) zoning district
Video. This one took more than half the meeting.
(APPROVED 7-0 with conditions) Or was it? The video shows one opposed: Paul Alvarado.
