“We don’t need to have new commercial zoning in our area.” –Gretchen Quarterman

“We have no interest in adding convenience to our peaceful little community.” –Becky Rowntree Harris

“The river is literally my back yard.” –Danielle Jackson

“Ten-day is an absolute joke.” –Samuel Heath Dawson

“And the other 112 acres would be the next battle.” –William Pope

“Put it across from Ashley Paulk’s development.” –Roxanne Newton

“Even with the goose egg [?] it’s still a Dollar General and I do not want this.” –Dan Richardson

“Please take the wishes of the many, versus the dollars of the few.” –Last Speaker

GLPC voted 7:1 to recommend disapproval. The actual rezoning decision will be made by the Lowndes County Commission at its Regular Session, Tuesday, December 13th, 2022, 5:30 PM. If you don’t want that store in an agricultural area, attracting still more subdivisions still farther north in the county, call or write your county commissioner or come speak against at that meeting. If somebody wants to start a petition, that might also help.

Or you can jump to the full meeting, in which you’ll learn the Hahira deannexation was unanimously voted against, GLPC has a new board member, Ron Bythwood, and a new Chair and Vice-Chair starting in January.

So, about 5. REZ-2022-20 Teramore, Hwy 122/Skipper Bridge Rd, 0067 051, 3.0 ac.E-A to C-C. Continue reading

Videos: Naylor Boat Ramp and Appointments to Public Facilities Authority @ LCC 2017-10-10

By far the most time, almost eight minutes, on 6b. Abandonment of Portions of Old Lake Park Road and Hickory Grove Road SE, the Lowndes County Commissioners spent two weeks ago, involving reference to minutes they approved in that meeting but that still aren’t on the county’s website two weeks later, and resulting in a split vote.

More interesting: the county is finally starting construction on the Naylor Boat Ramp.

By their customary silent “acclamation” they appointed people to the Lowndes County Public Facilities Authority.
