Thank you to all the people attending the P&Z meeting last night!
Last night the P&Z Board denied the Special Events Ordinance 4-0. (Vice-Chair Lee Holman was out of town.) There were approximately 30 people attending, including at least two that wanted to use their land for special events.
As we understood it, the owners of the property on Millen Rd. said their property would not be used for motocross racing, but for trail riding. Another property owner said she had bought 10 acres to use as a wedding venue. Both were questioned by others as to why they had not checked the zoning in the county FIRST, before purchasing the land for a use that is not allowed in Agriculture zoned areas.
The ordinance seemed to be poorly written, with little thought for all the questions it generated.
We will have video of the meeting posted in a few days.
The BOC does NOT have the public hearing for special events posted on their agenda for Monday, December 4 at 6:00PM.
