McDONOUGH – In the only action taken by the McDonough City Council at Monday’s meeting, a piece of land on Ga. Highway 155 North was rezoned.

The property, located at 1033 Ga. Highway 155 North, was rezoned from O-I (Office Institutional) to R-100 (Single Family Residential) with a unanimous vote by the City Council. The rezoned property is located between Brush Harbor Circle, Little Deer Trail and Turner Church Road, an area mostly used for residential purposes.

Approximately 4.96 acres of land, owned by Lisa Mobley, was impacted by the rezoning. There was very little discussion at the Monday meeting, aside from council members thanking Mobley for her patience as the process wore on. While a public hearing was scheduled at Monday’s meeting, there were no takers from those who attended the meeting.

According to a letter dated Aug. 8, Mobley wrote to the city that she intends to use the existing houses on the property as single-family residences.

With the postponement of another rezoning item during the meeting, the rezoning was the only action item considered by the McDonough City Council, and the council was out in a mere 16 minutes. Mayor Billy Copeland joked that may have been among the shortest City Council meetings he has been a part of.
