Boutique Hotel on Lake Oconee off Wards Chapel Road
To: Putnam County Board of Commissioners
Those who sign this petition are opposed to the rezoning request of 57 acres along Collis Road to RM-3 without conditions. The rezoning request is on the Board of Commissioner's June 16, 2020 public meeting agenda.
At the public meeting of the Planning and Zoning Commission on June 4, 2020, the developers of the hotel opposed the board’s recommendation to rezone the property to RM-3 with conditions. The conditions insure that a hotel is developed on the property.
If you oppose the rezoning request if anything other than a hotel is developed on the property or if you oppose the rezoning request for any reason, please consider signing this petition to inform the Board of Commissioners of the public's interest.
Residents in the area have spoken in opposition to rezoning the property from Single Family Residential (6 acres) and Agricultural (51 acres) to Multi-Family Residential (RM-3). The majority of residents speaking in opposition own properties zoned Single Family Residential that are within 1,000 feet of the proposed hotel. A few residents speaking in opposition live in Multi-Family Residential properties in the area; however, those were developed prior to 2007 under Planned Development zoning requirements which specify the details of the conditions for each development.
