Council denies apartment plan
Builder requested rezoning for a Park Avenue property
Placeholder Image
An attempt to convert a former business property into a potential apartment complex failed Tuesday morning. Akins Family LLP requested that 1.67 acres at 520 Park Ave. be rezoned from light industrial to R4, the highest-density residential zoning in Statesboro, which allows for apartment complexes. City Council members unanimously rejected the request after hearing from residents of the surrounding neighborhood, which is mostly made up of single-family homes.
