CampDoublecreek property to be recommended for rezoning

BY MEGAN CARDONA

After entertaining the idea of rezoning the property, the camp own- ers looked for someone who would be interested in the property and selected David Weekley Homes. Currently, the property is zoned C-1 for general commercial and SF-2 for single-family standard lot, according to the meeting agenda. Neal said the C-1 zoning was designated to the property in 1984 when there was no other zoning that made sense for the property at the time. When David Weekley Homes presented the zoning change request to the commission, the C-1 zoning got their attention because it no longer makes sense for the area, Neal said.
