Albany - An Albany neighborhood loses a fight to keep mini-warehouse from being built near their subdivision. Monday, Dougherty County commissioners unanimously approved a zoning request by Jones Construction to build storage units adjacent to the entrance of River Point Subdivision on Philema Road.

Last month, more than 60 home owners gave commissioners a petition voicing their concerns that the business would hurt the look and value of the property. Developers then added additional trees and columns to the building plans to appease both commissioners and home owners.

"We are still not happy that the mini-warehouse were approved," said home owner Fred Bowles."More trees and columns won't satisfy the neighborhood."

The land is currently zoned for commercial use.
