PUBLIC HEARING – Land Use

 

5.         ZM2478 (M) Fiddler’s Island - Consider a request to rezone from CP (Conservation Preservation) to RE (One-Family Residential Estates District). The property is located at 1782 Blythe Island Drive and consists of +/-8.34 acres of upland. The purpose of the rezoning is to allow residential dwelling use, rather than a caretaker’s residence, as an accessory use to a wildlife refuge. Parcel ID: 03-07471. Applicant: Al Beale, owner. (D. Hainley) LINK

 

David Hainley, Community Development Director, reported the purpose of the rezoning was to allow residential dwelling use, rather than a caretaker’s residence as an accessory use to a wildlife refuge. The Georgia Department of Natural Resources entered into a covenant restriction with the previous owner of the property. This allowed a reduction in taxes in exchange for not developing the property. At some point the covenant restriction expired and was not renewed.

The current owner purchased the property to develop into a large-lot subdivision, but later decided to sell it. Potential buyers have expressed concern with the CP zoning.

The Mainland Planning Commission and staff recommended approval.  This item was opened for public comment and Al Beale was available to answer questions.

 

A motion was made by Commissioner Callaway and seconded by Commissioner Hunt to approve the rezoning application ZM2478. The motion carried unanimously.  Resolution #R-69-12

 

6.         ZM2482 (M) Zoning Map Correction 3590 U.S. Highway 17 S. – Consider a request to make a correction to the Glynn County Zoning Map, as provided in Article XI, Section 1110. The correction involves rezoning case GC-7-88 which changed the subject property from FA (Forest Agricultural) to LI (Light Industrial) in 1988. The property is located on the north side of Highway 17 between Southport Parkway and Buck Swamp Road and is incorrectly depicted as HC (Highway Commercial). Parcel ID: 03-11562. Applicant: Glynn County Board of Commissioners. (D. Hainley)  LINK

 

Community Development Director David Hainley reported these items were map corrections, not amendments to the zoning ordinance. These errors were discovered during research of the records.

                These items were opened for public comment, yet no one addressed the Board.

               

A motion was made by Commissioner Callaway and seconded by Commissioner Coleman to approve application ZM2482. The motion carried unanimously.  Resolution #R-70-12

 

7.         Consider adopting the Altama Community Transformation (ACT) Plan as an amendment to the 2008 Glynn County Comprehensive Plan. The plan covers approximately 1600 acres in the City of Brunswick and unincorporated Glynn County. The vast majority of the plan area is within the city. The adoption of the plan is an important element in the process to create an Opportunity Zone which could act as a stimulant for reinvestment and jobs in the district. (D. Hainley) LINK

 

The Altama Community Transformation Plan (ACT) was an Archway Partnership project that identified growth as one of the community’s top priorities. A Growth Task Force (GTF) was created to address growth issues and explore redevelopment opportunities across the community.  The Plan focuses on corridor design, housing, and economic development standards and recommendations.

The Plan identifies potential funding methods and tools that could be potentially utilized to finance the ACT District plans or provide economic development incentives for the area.

Mr. Hainley said the City of Brunswick adopted the Plan at its meeting December 19, 2012. He added that staff recommended approval of the Plan.

This item was opened for public comment, yet no one addressed the Board.

 

A motion was made by Commissioner Hunt and seconded by Commissioner Clark to adopt the Altama Community Transformation (ACT) Plan as an amendment to the Comprehensive Plan. The motion carried unanimously.  

 

8.         Consider adopting an amendment to the Code of Ordinances, Glynn County, Georgia, to add a new Chapter 2-30, Vacant and Foreclosed Property; to provide for a vacant and foreclosed property registry; to provide for definitions; to provide guidelines for vacant and foreclosed property registries; to provide for exemptions; to provide an administrative fee for registration; to provide a maximum penalty for failure to register or update information; to provide administrative and appeal procedures; to provide for severability; to provide an effective date; to repeal all ordinances and parts of ordinances in conflict therewith; and for other purposes. (D. Hainley)  LINK

 

This item was opened for public comment, yet no one addressed the Board.

 

A motion was made by Commissioner Hunt and seconded by Commissioner Callaway to adopt an amendment to the Code of Ordinances adding a new Chapter 30 – Vacant and Foreclosed Property. The motion carried unanimously.  Ordinance #O-2012-10
