Planning Commission approves rezoning request

During the recent Stephens County Planning Commission meeting, the commission heard a rezoning request from Chad Singleton.

The property located on HWY 145 at Ridgeland Road is currently zoned as agriculture residential.

The proposed action to be taken is to rezone the property to agriculture intensive to build two breeder houses for a poultry farm.

Singleton also made a request for a conditional use at the same location, in order for him to proceed with the construction of the two breeder houses for the poultry farm.

The Commission, after discussing the matter, came to a consensus that both the rezoning request and conditional use request were acceptable.

County Clerk Beth Rider told WNEG News that the commission voted and approved both requests.

The planning commission took no other actions during the meeting.

The rezoning and conditional use requests will be presented before the Stephens County Board of Commissioners during its Nov. 28 meeting, held in the Stephens County Historical Courthouse Courtroom.
