Videos: Conditions on Valdosta Country Club, unanimous county access ariance @ ZBOA 2017-04-04

Last month the Zoning Board of Appeals unanimously approved Don Brotherton’s road access variance and by an unusual 3-2-1 vote approved the Valdosta Country Club’s city variance for its clubhouse golf cart barn, with the conditions including planting native plants between the barn and Country Club Road.

This 4 April 2017 meeting had a very light agenda for the decision-making Zoning Board of Appeals. Courtesy of ZBOA member Gretchen Quarterman, the entire board packet is on the LAKE website. Below, from the Valdosta city website, is ZBOA’s Meeting Results Summary.
