Videos: Gresham Event Venue passed 3:2, surprise Hospital Authority bond agreement @ LCC Regular 2024-03-12

Commissioners Joyce Evans and Demarcus Marshall voted against 5.a. REZ-2024-01 Gresham Event Venue, 8415 Old Valdosta Road. Commissioner Clay Griner moved to approve with four conditions, Commissioner Scottie Orenstein seconded, and they and Commissioner Mark Wisenbaker voted for. Most of the audience left, clearly not happy.

The Lowndes County Commission at its Regular Session approved everything else unanimously. At an hour and fourteen minutes, this was among its longest meetings.

Approvals included the last-minute addition, 6.f. Intergovernmental agreement with the Hospital Authority. The hospital wants to fund expansion, in the usual way by floating bonds guaranteed by the county.

One citizen wished to be heard. Sandra D.S. Jones thanked the commission for appointing her to the Board of Tax Assessora.

The revised site plan was approved for 5.c. REZ-2024-03 Southern Gardens, 4609 Bemiss Rd.

The condition on the developer related to the adjoining properties was required to stay with the site regardless of owners, for 5.d. REZ-2024-04 Clyattstone Rd Subdivision.

Those two subdivisions are better than many because they are close to existing services.
