Just a reminder you are encouraged to attend a meeting hosted by the Planning Commission at the request of the Board of Commissioners concerning a new zoning district that would allow mixed use development with single-family residence and business uses to run from a detached structure on the same property.
At the March 23 Board of Commissioners meeting, the motion was approved to send the proposed ordinance to create the PRBD-PUD zoning district back to the Planning Commission to allow more citizen education and awareness. This meeting has been scheduled in conjunction with the Planning Commission meeting on Thursday, April 20, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at the Fayette County Public Library located at 1821 Heritage Park Way, Fayetteville, Georgia 30214 and I am personally encouraging each of you to attend. The creation of the PRBD-PUD zoning district will affect the entire county.
Those in attendance will be allowed to make public comments and/or ask questions regarding the PRBD-PUD during this meeting.
At the March 23 meeting I didn’t realize that I have a scheduling conflict on April 20 and regret that I may not be able to attend the entire meeting.
It is my hope that you would share this with those in your community. If you have any questions, please feel free to give me a call at 470-217-2214.
