BOC to hear application for conditional use permit for event venue in rural residential area

Walton County, Ga. – The Board of Commissioners will hear the case for a conditional use permit for an event venue at a home on Double Springs Church Road at the June 2019 BOC meeting on Tuesday, June 4, 2019. There also will be a public hearing on the application and there is expected to be a large presence in opposition to the action. Residents in the area, which is described as rural residential, have collection names on a petition claiming that the development will make the road unsafe due to the extra cars on the road, the potential drinking and driving from the location and speeding on the road. The surrounding properties are zoned A1 and the neighbors say that there is not a need for another event venue in the area as there are 100 within a 25-mile radius. There is also concern about the lights and noise in a quiet residential neighborhood from the event venue.

The owners of the property at 1775 Double Springs Church Road, Reinhard & Annette Seier, want to build an event venue for weddings and similar occasions. They will also put in parking spaces and consider moving the driveway which currently sits on a curve in the road. They say they will only hold events on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and will adhere to any noise ordinance. The Planning Commissions has recommended denial.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. in the Historic Courthouse in downtown Monroe. The full agenda follows.
