The petitioner, Richmond Ferguson, is requesting approval of a rezoning map amendment for the property at 1712 Ogeechee Road. The property is currently zoned TR-1 (Traditional Residential-1), and the proposed rezoning is TC-1 (Traditional Commercial-1).

The subject property is an undeveloped 0.11 acres parcel northeast of the intersection of Ogeechee Road and Lavinia Street. Vehicular access to the subject property is provided by Lavinia Street. Ogeechee Road has a width of 31 feet and has two-lanes.  In 2019, the zoning was changed from Multifamily Residential-25 units per net acre/Planned Neighborhood Conservation to TR-1 with the update of the New City Zoning Ordinance (NewZO).

On August 16, 2022, the Planning Commission heard the petition and requested that the petitioner meet with MPC staff to find an alternative rezoning classification. Staff worked with the petitioner and were unable to find an alternative solution that suited the petitioner.  He has elected to move forward with the petition as originally submitted with the TC-1 rezoning request.


On October 11, 2022, the Planning Commission recommended denial of the zoning map amendment for 1712 Ogeechee Road (PIN 20066 21009) from TR-1 (Traditional Residential-1) to TC-1 (Traditional Commercial-1).
