Oconee County Planning Commission Grants Presbyterian Homes of Georgia Request for Delay

The Oconee County Planning Commission voted Monday to accept the request of Presbyterian Homes of Georgia for a postponement of consideration of its request for a rezone.

The Oconee County Planning Commission voted Monday to accept the request of Presbyterian Homes of Georgia for a postponement of consideration of its request for a rezone of 96 acres on Rocky Branch Road for a continuing care retirement community.

Smith Planning Group, 1022 Twelve Oaks Place, just east of Butler’s Crossing, sent a fax to the Oconee County Planning Department seven minutes before official closing time today asking for the delay on behalf of client Frank McElroy, president and CEO of PHG.

With the fax was a letter from McElroy saying that, “due to circumstances beyond our control, I respectfully request” that the rezone and related special use request “be tabled to no later than June 17, 2013, meeting of the Planning Commission.”

Chairman Dan Arnold told the large crowd assembled that “these things sometimes happen, unfortunately. It is one of those things that I don’t think anybody in the county had any control over."
