A 3.6-acre tract on Jackson Lake Road near Hwy. 81 now has a commercial zoning.

Rezoning approved for Jackson Lake Road site in Henry County

The Henry County Board of Commissioners voted unanimously at its Oct. 15 regular meeting to approve a rezoning for a 3.6-acre tract at 137 Jackson Lake Road, just east of its intersection with Hwy. 81.

The change is from RA (residential agricultural) to C-3 (highway commercial) for the purpose of a self-service storage and outside storage facility. The request was recommended for denial by the county’s Zoning Advisory Board in November of 2018, but the Future Land Use Map was amended since then to increase the planned commercial node in that area, changing the land use designation of the property in question to commercial.

The motion to approve the rezoning included the stipulation that the site only be used for a storage facility, along with various easement and buffer requirements.
