Voges Asking Commercial Zoning For Fairyland Lot By Bank

Thursday, December 20, 2012 - by Matthew Smisson

The Lookout Mountain, Ga., City Council met for a public hearing on Thursday evening to discuss rezoning of property owned by Greg Voges on McFarland Road. The property in question is located across the street from Fairyland Pharmacy and to the right of Citizens Bank and Trust.

Currently the property is undeveloped and zoned multi-family residential use, but Mr. Voges would like the planning commission and the council to rezone his property to commercial being that is in the commercial district.

Mr. Voges believes that the property may have the opportunity to sell if it is rezoned. He also has considered developing on this property himself and, in order to do that, rezoning is important.

City Attorney Bill Pickering told Mr. Voges that he will have to provide some specifics about the property to the planning commission and the council before the next meeting.

The council will vote on rezoning the property at the January meeting.  

Mayor Bill Glascock also thanked the Woodland Garden Club for the recent contribution to the pedestrian pathway project.

Following the meeting the council joined all the city employees and special guests at the Lookout Mountain Golf Club for their annual Christmas Party. Mayor Glascock warmly thanked all of the city employees for their hard work over the past year. Other council members also gave warm wishes to all the employees.

Derrick Forrester, police officer and city employee, was recognized for his 24 years of service and selfless contribution to the well being of all Lookout Mountain citizens. The mayor led a standing ovation in honor of Officer Forrester.

Councilman David Bennett gave out some Christmas treats to the employees.

The city is selling T-shirts and hoodies with the Fairyland logo on them. They can be purchased at city hall during regular hours.

The next council meeting will be Thursday, Jan. 17, at 5:30 p.m.
