Zoning officer Tim Pitrowski presented five items for the board’s consideration, beginning with a request for a home day care for up to six children on Graybone Court. He said the board heard the request several months ago and denied it, but the commissioners granted her a rehearing.
Petitioner Kimberly Morgan said she has met all the state rules and regulations. She said she is taking care of all the transportation and already has three children in her home from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. The petition was unanimously approved.
Pitrowski asked the board to amend a section of the county’s comprehensive plan that would change the way road bonds are handled by developers. He said the change would ensure that the bonds come from a reputable source and also deals with how a driveway is constructed in new subdivisions. The amendment had been through the required process and was approved unanimously.
The zoning officer also spoke about proposed zoning changes to those areas of Jones County previously under the jurisdiction of Macon that were returned to the county due to the Macon/Bibb consolidation process.
