Walton County BOC Tuesday to consider rezone to allow for building of a new VFW meeting hall

The Walton County Board of Commissions will have its regular September meeting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 13, in the Historic Walton County Courthouse located at 111 South Broad Street in Monroe.

The public is invited to attend. If you are unable to attend, you can still watch the meeting live via the County’s Youtube channel at this link.

The BOC is scheduled to consider the rezone from M1 to B3 of property at 1700 Snows Mill Road to allow for the construction of a new 5,000 sq. ft meeting hall for the Walton County VFW. The property is owned by the Walton County Development Authority. The Planning Commission is recommending approval, but not everybody is happy with the potential development. A petition against it by 29 residents in the surrounding area is raising concerns about potential noise and negative impact on their property values. However, the current zoning of M1 allows for manufacturing which officials say could potentially have a greater impact on noise and property values.
