Commissioners To Be Asked to Grant Variances to Settle Disagreement Over Oconee County Connector Access

The Oconee County Board of Commissioners will hold its public hearing on a variance request for property in the intersection of Daniells Bridge Road and the Oconee Connector.

The Oconee County Board of Commissioners will hold its official public hearing tomorrow night on a variance request by the estate of Dave R. Knowlton for a piece of property in the busy intersection of Daniells Bridge Road and the Oconee Connector.

Citizens who are in favor of or opposed to the requested waiver or modification of requirements regarding buffers on the property will have a chance to speak.

But what they say is extremely unlikely to have any impact on what the commissioners vote to do at the end of the hearing.

The county already has agreed to provide these waivers and variances as part of a settlement of a lawsuit filed by a neighbor of the Knowlton property, and the advertised hearing is merely a formality.

For details of the settlement and its impact on tomorrow night's hearing, go to Oconee County Observations.
