Newsflash: Lowndes County Commission does right thing about rezoning!
Commissioner Raines expressed puzzlement as to what to do
about rezoning for Nottinghill on Cat Creek since he thought
the previous day that there was a deal between
and the neighbors, but it turned out
there was not.
Commissioner Powell recommended tabling until next meeting so the
developer and the neighbors could try again to work something out.
Bill Nijem, representative of the applicant, brought forward information
demonstrating his client’s willingness to work with neighbors, in
that lot sizes were increased by 20 percent and that the average lot
size would range from a minimum of 12,000 square feet to 20,000 square
feet. Nijem also reminded commissioners that the applicant was willing to
install any necessary buffers or fences to prevent children from playing
in the neighboring fields and would have water and sewer installed with
his own financial resources.
