Bulloch County Commissioners approved a rezoning request Tuesday allowing a developer to plan a 115-lot subdivision in Clito.

Jim Anderson spoke for Robbie Bell and his company Southern States Plantation LLP, in asking for a zoning change from "Ag 5" (agricultural, five acres) to R25 (residential, 25,000 feet to begin development on the Clito Road project.

Bell hopes to build stick-built homes, with paved streets and a community water system on the 95 acres, Anderson said. After review, commissioners voted unanimously to approve the request.

"I have a lot of confidence in Bulloch County's economy," Bell said Thursday. Plans for starting the project depend on future economic conditions, he said.

The property is located on Clito Road, just off U.S. Highway 301 North, and extends to Cliponreka Road, he said.

"We felt there was future opportunity in that area," he said. "It has good potential for development."

Homes proposed for the subdivision will be in the $150,000 range, he said.

According to commission packet information available on the Bulloch County website,, the proposed subdivision would have on-site sewerage and would likely impact the Mill Creek school feeder system by a minimum of 14 students.

Commissioners approved the rezoning with conditions listed that must be met during development, including specifics regarding construction of the houses, median requirements and including a community area.

Also during Tuesday's meeting, commissioners unanimously approved a request by Jemina Fields to open a boy's home in a Brook Run Drive subdivision residence off Pulaski Road near the Bulloch/Candler county line.

While Bell, (who also owns property in the subdivision) and other voiced concerns, Fields assured commissioners the facility would be state-supervised and would be able to house only up to six residents in addition to her own family.
