Residents to challenge Zebulon Road rezoning in court | News
A group of residents filed an appeal in Bibb County Superior Court on Thursday challenging a decision to rezone 25 acres of property on Zebulon Road from residential to commercial.
The civil action was filed by attorney Bill Larsen on behalf of 27 property owners who live near the rezoned area in which an Alabama-based developer plans to build a 250,000 square foot shopping center.
The Macon-Bibb County Planning and Zoning Commission voted last month to rezone the property located near the Stone Edge subdivision east of Northway Church, across the street from Sonny Carter Elementary.
The appeal seeks to reverse the zoning commission's decision alleging that officials "acted inappropriately by not following its own regulations when considering the rezoning."
