The Planning Commission meets Monday evening to consider those ULDC amendments, so county staff will recommend to the County Commission at their Monday 8:30 AM Work Session that they table the MAZ text changes at their Regular Session Tuesday 5:30 PM evening. Meanwhile, the Air Force wants to maintain the road rights of way for Davidson Road and along Grassy Pond. And the Land Bank Authority wants to appoint some more members, acording to “the attached resolution” which of course we the taxpayers aren’t allowed to see without an open records request.
Elected Probate Judge McDowell can appoint a part-time associate judge, but she needs the county commission to approve funding the salary. The DA wants to continue a Victims of Crime Act Victims Service grant.
Finally, bids for Disaster Related Debris Removal Proposals required by FEMA, plus the usual beer, wine, and liquor licenses.
All that in the agenda.

An extract from the agenda item sheet, which mentions the AICUZ Moody AFB presented at the SGRC meeting in Pearson 23 July 2015:
Since the initial public presentation of these amendments in May the main changes have been aimed at allowing additional density for properties in MAZ II and MAZ III and some type of consideration for the existing noise regulations. The density allowances were initially presented as being further limited than the previous proposal (TXT-2012-02) and would only apply to families and agricultural workers, similar to what is currently allowed in the agricultural zonings in the County (EA and R-A), The initial presentation of these family and agricultural worker types of allowances were ultimately withdrawn due to concerns over the long-term potential increases in density and the negative impacts that they may have on Moody AFB. In lieu of those family and agricultural worker density increases County leadership has discussed investigating some form of financial relief for MAZ property owners. It should also be noted that after the initial drafts of the text amendments were released in May Moody AFB released their latest Air Installation Compatible Use Zone (AICUZ) Study (July 9th). The AICUZ study should serve as a baseline for the base’s current land use impacts, land use concerns, and land use direction. A helpful aspect of this recent AICUZ study is that it applies to more than just Moody AFB property The AICUZ also studies properties outside of Moody AFB in the surrounding area. For further reference, additional clarification and background on compatible land uses, density, and noise is included within the AICUZ study .
