Henry County zoning board rejects requests for Fairview site

Rezoning and variance requests for a five-acre piece of property in northern Henry County received an unfavorable response Sept. 9 from the Henry County Zoning Advisory Board. The site in question is on Fairview Road to the east and west of Dior Drive, and six residential lots were proposed. A request for rezoning from RA (residential agricultural) to R-2 (single-family residential) was recommended for denial due to the requirements to build on the property, and a subsequent variance request for relief from Highway Corridor Overlay District requirements was also rejected to maintain consistency within the district.

Both votes were unanimous. Final approval or denial of rezoning requests lies with the Board of Commissioners. Information: henrycounty-ga.com.
