A county access variance and a Valdosta Country clubhouse variance @ ZBOA 2017-04-04

2:30 PM today: it looks like Don Brotherton bought a piece of land without enough road access, and now he wants a county variance, while Valdosta Country Club wants a city variance for its clubhouse, and city staff don’t agree. This is 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.

Keep the pipeline fox out of your henhouse! –Don Brotherton

Say no to Sabal

I have been contacted by Sabal Trail Transmission for the permission to survey our property for the proposed natural gas pipeline in Lowndes County Afier receiving several letters from Sabal and now having received the “scary” certified letter, my answer is still the same. No. We already have one gas pipeline on our property and having two will not be twice the fun.

Sabal is in the very early stages of gathering information to get a permit from FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission). They can only gather this information from surveys. If property owners allow them to survey It is the same as letting the fox in the hen house. They will have the information they need to obtain the permit.

Keep the fox out of your hen house! If you haven’t already said yes, just say no!
