A rezoning of two residential lots was approved by the Henry County Board of Commissioners.

The Henry County Board of Commissioners voted at its Nov. 5 regular meeting to approve a rezoning for two residential lots totaling 1.717 acres on Monticello Lane on the north side of Jonesboro Road.

The change is from R-3 back to R-2 because the widening of Jonesboro Road has made it impossible to meet minimum lot size and setback requirements, and the lots are not accessible to sewer which is what R-3 lots typically used, making the lots essentially unbuildable without the rezoning.

No one spoke in opposition to the request. A motion was made to approve the rezoning with seven conditions, and it passed by unanimous vote.
