Macon officials to consider rezoning property near Pio Nono Avenue

lmorris@macon.comApril 26, 2014 

The Macon-Bibb County zoning commission is expect to consider Monday a rezoning request for about 20 acres near Pio Nono Avenue at Interstate 75.

The proposal to rezone the property at 114 Trailer Park Drive from two-family residential district to a commercial district would bring the zoning classification into conformity with the existing land use, according to the Macon-Bibb County Planning & Zoning Commission’s staff report.

The rezoning actually would correct the zoning of an existing mobile home park, the report states.

The applicant, Ron Burger with Brazowa Krowa LLC, also is looking for approval to allow recreational vehicles in one section of the property.

“The site is surrounded by a single-family residential neighborhood that entails occupied dwellings, as well as a presence of blighted properties that are vacant/boarded,” the report states.

A concentration of commercial development is near one side of the property.

“Staff is of the opinion that the proposal as submitted is in compliance with the overall land use pattern and would not adversely influence living conditions in the surrounding areas,” according to the report.

The meeting begins at 1:30 p.m. in the 10th floor conference room in the Willie C. Hill City Hall Annex, 682 Cherry St.
