Walton County BOC to take another look a rezone for a concert hall that has been recommended for denial

Back on the agenda for Tuesday’s Walton County Board of Commissioners for July 2021 is rezone of 10.467 acres at 376 Highway 11 for a concert hall. The rezoning has been recommended for denial by the Walton County Planning Commission. The neighbors in the surrounding area are not supportive of the proposal with many speaking out against it citing noise concerns. The applicant, Angela McDowell, who is African American, said she believes the objections are racially motivated. The issue was held over last month and will be taken up again this month.

The Walton County BOC meeting is a 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 6, 2021, at the Historic Walton County Courthouse, 111 S. Broad Street in Monroe. The public is invited to attend. The full agenda follows.
