Actually, not contentious: the planners and applicants spoke for a long time. Nobody spoke against the rezoning requests, and the Greater Lowndes Planning Commission (GLPC) voted unanimously to recommend approval of all of them, last month on September 26, 2022.
Update 2022-10-24: Videos: Many rezonings, some contentious @ GLPC 2022-09-26.
Thanks to Loretta Hylton of SGRC for the Dasher agenda item, to City Planner Matt Martin for the seven Valdosta items, and to BOC Records for the two Lowndes County Items, presumably made by County Planner JD Dillard.

The Valdosta Lowndes County Development Authority (VLCDA) wants to rezone and annex into Valdosta an acres at 1349 Old Statenville Road, which is next to one of VLCDA’s existing industrial parks. Continue reading
Valdosta State University gave the American Association of University Women Powell Hall for this candidate forum last Thursday, September 21, 2017. Why they held it in a dark room with bad acoustics, I don’t know, but at least you can see the candidates and other speakers.

They meet again tonight at 5:30 PM.

Another very light agenda at the Planning Commission, with one zoning change from Lake Park, and one Valdosta rezoning for a “personal care salon” on Woodrow Wilson Drive.
