Forsyth County News
During a Tuesday meeting, the Forsyth County Planning Commission made the following recommendations, which move on to the county commission:

• Approved Anglea Peevy's request for a conditional use permit for a small goat dairy farm and boarding services on 12.1 acres on Howard Road.
Neighbors who own a dog kennel business wanted to ensure that the goats and guard animals were properly fenced in and that gates would not block the driveway for their customers.

The board added a condition that all livestock must be fenced in on either side of the easement.

• Denied a proposal to allow a night watchman to live at a residence on a commercially zoned property at 6150 Atlanta Hwy. that has had problems with vandalism and theft.
Chairman Barry Russell said the owner has not complied with conditions or requests in the past.

• Accepted a request for a conditional use permit to allow an outdoor play area for a dog day care center owned by IT Gone Dogs at 5165 Atlanta Hwy.

• Heard proposed changes to the zoning map and unified development code.

Staff presented the possibility of: setting a maximum Big Creek impervious surface area; adding conditional use permits for churches; changing mailing requirements; and rezoning all A2 agricultural properties to A1.

The board will have an additional public hearing on the matter May 25.
