All the rezonings on the GLPC agenda for tonight are in Lowndes County.
The two on Madison Highway appear to be coincidence.
REZ-2019-01 Jerry Stoker is apparently for one or both of the
two Stoker Development LLC parcels on Old Pine Road.
This is part of the general development of what Lowndes County staff
refer to as “Central Lowndes County”, as in their preferred development area.

Their longest item was
3. CU-2018-13 Scintilla Charter Academy‘s
request to expand from an Elementary School to add a Middle School.
GLPC recommended approval unanimously, as they did for all other such items.
Second longest, at almost four minutes,
Merrillee Malwitz-Jipson, who came from Florida to speak in
Florida effects of Valdosta Sewage.
Ms. Tooley stopped her precisely at three minutes, but
City Manager Mark Barber took most of a minute thanking her
for coming to speak.
Council Tim Carroll
also thanked the Florida speaker in Council Comments.
Third longest was probably me (jsq) inviting
them to paddle and discussing sewage.
City Manager Barber before the meeting said he would be sure

PHMSA doesn’t have a public map
of the Sabal Trail fracked methane pipeline,
but it does have a map of U.S. LNG Facilities, including
many in Georgia and Florida. The source slides include many assertions about safety of LNG trucks and trains, but why should we take any risk for fossil fuel export profit to a few company executives and investors we solar power has no risk of leaks or explosions?
I’ve pulled out this detail of the U.S. Southeast,
in which you can clearly see Pivotal LNG’s Alabama, Tennessee, and three Georgia plants marked with green circles as “Peakshavers with Liquefaction”,
as well as Elba Island LNG at Savannah marked with a big red box.
In Florida, Eagle (Maxville?) LNG at Jacksonville and Hialeah LNG at Miami
are marked with stars as “Emerging LNG facilities”.
Wait a minute!
For ten years we’ve been told the county no longer buys rights of way:
if you want your road paved, you have to donate the right of way.
So why this exception?
And why sneak it in like this?
get paid for right of way if the county paves Black Road?
Rev. Berlinda Hart Love
get paid for right of way if the county paves
Williams School Road?
They were the two citizens who were heard.
