Rezoning request for proposed industrial park denied again
Board of Commissioners will vote during Oct. 4 meeting
Bulloch County Seal W
For the second time, the Bulloch County Planning and Zoning Commission denied a rezoning request to change a 4,682-acre tract from Agricultural and Residential (AG-5) to Light Industrial (LI). Citing the lack of sufficient information, board members unanimously voted to recommend that the Bulloch County Board of Commissioners deny the request by Dan Bradley Jr., owner of GA I-16 Bulloch LLC, to obtain the rezone in order to build an industrial park to attract light industries that need larger tracts than the acreage provided by current Bulloch County industrial parks. Local attorney Wes Taulbee, of Taulbee, Rushing, Snipes, Marsh & Hodgins LLC, spoke to a crowd of opposing residents that spilled out into the hallway, telling them that industries will not consider locating in areas that are not already zoned for industry.
