Coweta Zoning Appeals board meets Tuesday

The Coweta County Board of Zoning Appeals will meet Tuesday at 6 p.m. at the Powell Expo Center off Temple Avenue in Newnan.

There are only two items on the agenda for public hearings, following the withdrawal of a variance request by Ray Grammer for property on Ga. Hwy. 16 East at Crook Road.

The remaining agenda items are a buffer reduction request from Chad Caldwell for property at 915 East Hwy. 16 and a setback reduction request by Earl Byrom for property on Peachtree Drive, Sharpsburg.

Caldwell is requesting a 50-foot buffer reduction for the five-acre tract.

Byrom is requesting a 30-foot front setback reduction and a 25-foot rear setback reduction from the 1.303-acre tract, which is located across from 82 Peachtree Drive.

The Board of Zoning Appeals holds public hearings and makes recommendations to the Coweta County Board of Commissioners. The commissioners make the final decision.
