It took the Greater Lowndes Planning Commission (GLPC) about an hour to consider the Valdosta and Lowndes County rezonings. Each case had quite a few citizen speakers and much Commissioner discussion.
The one Lowndes County case got a 6:2 recommendation to deny. It will be decided by the Lowndes County Commission tomorrow evening, March 14, 2023.
The one Valdosta case got a unanimous recommendation to approve. It was decided by the Valdosta Mayor and Council on March 9th.
