LCPC OKs phone museum rezone
Placeholder Image
The Liberty Consolidated Planning Commission Aug. 21 recommended zoning changes that will pave the way for the International Telephone Pioneers Association’s office, museum and community center at the former Glenn and Trudie Bryant residence on Highway 84.
The 39 acres was zoned for residential use, and, if the Hinesville City Council agrees, will become office-industrial.
The area will host craft shows, fairs and community activities.
At the beginning of the meeting, the commissioners conference room was crowded with interested citizens, but as agenda items were disposed of, many by being tabled, attendance was reduced to almost no one.
A petition from the Yellow Bluff Development concerning a dispute over a fence was tabled because the fence height was found to be the subject of an enforcement action by county inspectors.
Also tabled was a rezoning petition from the owners of Dolphin Island who want to create a planned unit development for 22 condominiums. The Dolphin Island agent requested the delay.
