Walton County to consider rezone to make way for a 35-lot residential subdivision on Cedar Ridge Road

The Walton County will have its first meeting of 2022 at 6 p.m, on Tuesday, Jan. 4, 2022 at the Historic Courthouse on S. Broad Street in Monroe. The meeting will begin with rezoning applications, including one that will make way for a 35-lot residential subdivision off Cedar Ridge Road alongside Highway 78 and the Alcovy River. This development is in unincorporated Walton County. A development that would bring 310 new homes to the other end of Cedar Ridge from its intersection with Double Springs Church Road already has residents in the area concerned about the burden that such a development will put on local services and traffic in the area.

The full agenda for Tuesday’s meeting follows.
