Hwy. 16 rezoning before Coweta commission Tuesday

by Sarah Fay Campbell

A public hearing on a rezoning request for the former Andy’s Nursery property on Highway 16 E. is on the agenda for Tuesday’s meeting of the Coweta County Board of Commissioners.

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

Chad Caldwell has applied to have the property, at 915 East Hwy. 16, rezoned from C-3 Commercial Retail to LM Light Industrial for a contractor yard and office. The existing building will be turned into offices. The greenhouses will be demolished and replaced with a metal building that will serve as a maintenance facility for the contractor’s fleet.

Caldwell is also requesting a variance for a 50-foot reduction in the buffer for the adjoining residential districts.

In other meeting business:

• The board will execute proclamations designating Survivor Sunday and Relay for Life days in Coweta County.

• A request for vested rights regarding the Fox Hall subdivision.

• A request to submit grant applications for the accountability court funding program.
