Franklin County Commission to discuss moratorium on new development in the St. George Island commercial district
Franklin County Commission will hold a public hearing on Tuesday to
discuss a possible moratorium on all new development in the St.
George Island commercial district while the county decides how they
would like to see the area developed.
approved the 6 month moratorium would impact new development between
3rd street east and 3rd street west on St.
moratorium will give the county time to develop a St. George Island
Corridor Zoning Overlay District which will better define the types
of development that will be allowed in the commercial district.
public hearing is scheduled to be held at 11 AM during the county
commission's regular meeting at the Franklin County Courthouse Annex.
the county has a “Zoning in Progress” Resolution in place which
instructs county Planning and Zoning staff not to accept any new
development applications for the St. George Island commercial
district until the moratorium has been put in place.
