Conditional use gets Henry County zoning board approval

The Henry County Zoning Advisory Board voted at its Jan. 28 regular meeting to approve a conditional use request involving 97 acres of land on the north side of Mount Carmel Road between Chambers Road and Mill Road. According to a staff report, the property is zoned R-3 and the applicant, who is planning a conservation subdivision, wants to reduce the minimum square footage of each lot from 18,000 to 10,890 and reduce the minimum lot width from 100 to 60 feet. T

he request is partly due to a large flood plain on the northern part of the site. Any modification of zoning conditions must be approved by the Board of Commissioners.
