Update 2017-09-13: The Lowndes County Commissioners surprisingly agreed to rezone “backwards” to Estate A gricultural (E-A) at their Regular Session of 14 April 2015.
A historic dairy farm wants to go back to the most agricultural zoning, upstream on Cherry Creek from the Cherry Creek Sink that leaks into the Floridan Aquifer. Vallotton Farms (both the part outlined in red that appears to be the subject of the rezoning and the bigger part west of Bemiss Road) includes quite a bit of Cherry Creek itself. Agriculture is probably better than other likely uses in such a location.
Shadrick Sink is round and blue on the center left edge above, with Cherry Creek Sink a bit downstream where the creek enters the river, all downstream from Cherry Lake dam, and downstream from Vallotton Farms.
This rezoning is on the agenda for tonight at the Greater Lowndes Planning Commission and for 13 and 14 April 2015 at the Lowndes County Commission.
