Franklin County plans moratorium on new developments in SGI commercial district
Franklin County Commission plans to establish a moratorium on all
development in the commercial district while the county decides how
they would like to see the area developed.
week the board agreed to schedule a public hearing to vote on a 6
month moratorium on new development between 3rd street
east and 3rd street west on St. George Island.
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.
the public hearing can be held on the issue, the county agreed to
adopt a “Zoning in Progress” Resolution which instructs county
Planning and Zoning staff not to accept any new development
applications in the area between 3rd Street East and 3rd
Street West on St. George Island.
