I have a hard time believing that the DNR is going to hold a bake sale
to protect the rivers and streams of our state. Some House leaders,
including Judy Manning (R-Marietta) and Debbie Buckner (D-Junction City)
have said they are uneasy with HB 887. Rightly so.
condominiums and zoning
in the Lowndes County ULDC,
Georgia condominium law
basically says that zoning
can’t deny condos if some other form of ownership is permitted.
If there’s a five acre minimum, only one condo unit could fit
in that five acres, but with community membership
with the other condos on the associated property..
For example, on an 18 acre piece of property,
the maximum number of units would be 3 or 4.
Of course, a condominium doesn’t have to be a dwelling unit.
Gary Stock points out
The key feature is joint ownership:
“A condominium is not a building. It is a form of ownership.”
it could be a horse farm, a hunting camp, a fishing club, or other.
There usually needs to be a general common area, then some limited
common areas with building envelopes for condo unit owners to use
to build buildings (or maybe buildings are already there).
The catch is that because a condominium is all one piece of property
jointly owned, drawing limited common areas and building envelopes
doesn’t require zoning approval.
