A rezoning approval made Thursday by Columbia County planning commissioners will bring two properties on Flowing Wells Road closer to county compliance.
Both 487 and 489 Flowing Wells Road were rezoned from light industrial and single-family residential to general commercial. Michael Lazar owns Lazar's Trailers and Welding and a used car sales business on the lots.
To conform with the county's code, both businesses require a general commercial zoning.
Though neither property is within a commercial node, planning staff said the zoning is suitable because the businesses are near Interstate 20.
Commissioners also approved a motion to prohibit further commercial zoning on Flowing Wells Road past Old Anderson Road.
Also at the meeting, developers of Riverwood Plantation requested a change in housing style for 16 lots in the Amberley subdivision.
Initially, properties on Amberley Trail and Amberley Drive were planned for both attached and detached units.
The request was approved, allowing nine single-family detached units and seven detached "cluster" units. The new homes will resemble other residences in the neighborhood.
In other business, the board approved preliminary plats for 11 lots on 84.2 acres in the future Farms at Greenbrier development off North Tubman Road and 12 lots on 4.2 acres in the Ashbrooke subdivision off Chamblin Road.
Planning commissioners also initiated text amendments for regulations regarding temporary signs and the Evans Town Center Overlay District.
