Almost 900 acres in the Agriculture district on the Future Land Use Map

From Highway 11 North, down Palato Road, up to Holloway Hollow Road, and over to Calvin Road –an area consisting of 896 acres of Agriculturally zoned land—is up for rezoning per a request by William P. Blincoe III along with his partners in Bedford Falls Development.

Mr. Blincoe has been accumulating this large area of land piece by piece, or should we say tract by tract over the last several years. The last piece of this puzzle came together recently with a purchase from Cedar Creek Land Investment, LLC (Bennett, Wyatt, Thomas, and Parrish) on December 5, 2006.

According to this latest deed William P. Blincoe III is from Fulton County, Georgia. Other deeds show that William P. Blincoe III is from Chatham County (Savannah), Georgia. Others in the “Beford Falls Development” are Hugh C. Middleton (Fulton County), Glenn R. Blincoe (Kentucky), and Scott H. Austin (Gwinnett County).

The zoning request is to rezone from Agriculture to RR, Rural Residential, which would be 3-acre lots. The County’s Future Land Use Map shows this area as Agriculture and is surrounded by land shown as Agriculture, Forestry, Hunting and Fishing.

The Jasper County Planning and Zoning Commission will conduct public hearing on this rezoning request April 26, 2007 beginning at 7:00 pm in the County Annex building, 162 N. Warren Street, Monticello, GA. Official legal ad is as follows:

a) Application 2007Z02, applicant Bedford Falls Development, owner William Blincoe, III to rezone 896 acres located on Palalto Road, Holloway Hollow and Calvin Road from Agriculture to RR. This tract is shown on map 21 parcel 16,16A, 19,20,21,17 Map 22 parcel 12,13,14 and Map 27 on parcel 56.

According to GDOT statistics in 2005 the DAILY traffic counts in this area were:

Liberty Church Road between Calvin Rd and Aldridge Rd –330
Post Road between Calvin Road and Bowden Road—800
Highway 11 North at Thomason Road (which runs into Palato Road) –1690

With this large rezone traffic would double and possibly triple on these roads.
Do not think this will not affect you. An additional 250-300 houses with approximately 500-600 more vehicles a day and that many more children in our schools, it will affect you and your property taxes.

This rezone is NOT consistent with the Future Land Use Map of this County.

If you can not attend this meeting, you can fax your comments to the P&Z Board at 706-468-4938 or take them by the P&Z office before the 4/26/07 meeting.
