Commission meeting scheduled Thursday

by Sarah Fay Campbell

A public hearing on a request for a special events facility, as well as several other zoning issues, are on the agenda Thursday's meeting of the Coweta County Board of Commissioners.

Meetings are typically held on Tuesdays, but this week’s meeting was moved to Thursday because of the MLK holiday.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. and is held in the commission chambers on Perry Street.

Jerry and Beth DeJarnett are seeking a special use permit to use their property at 1390/1394 Macedonia Road as a special events facility, hosting events such as weddings and parties. The DeJarnetts have a 15.6-acre tract of land.

The planning department is recommending approval.

The first hearing will be on Jack Shepard’s request to amend a zoning condition for property at 3054 Ga. Hwy. 154. Shepard is requesting an amendment to allow the former ACE Hardware to be used as a furniture store. The planning department is recommending approval.

The third hearing is on a request by TGAL LLC to allow a vacant building in the Thomas Grace Annex to have a restaurant as a tenant. The request is to go from C4 to C3. The planning department is recommending approval.

In addition to the public hearings, the commissioners will consider a conditional use permit request for Southwest Christian Church on U.S. 29 North.

Other items on the agenda include:

• A request for vested development rights for property at Arbor Springs subdivision owned by Trivue LLC. The property was zoned commercial several years ago.

Also on the agenda is a request for vested development rights regarding Moreland Oaks. That item has been on the agenda several times but has always been delayed.

• Acceptance of grand jury presentments.
