Thomasville, Georgia-- Thomas County's 60-day moratorium on new subdivisions has been extended so commissioners can have more time to consider the logistics.

It was supposed to end on February 20th, but county commissioners have voted to extend it to May 1st. They say they haven't reached an agreement on the changes that need to be made to the ordinance.

Commissioner Elaine Mays adds that they want to make sure Thomas County's agricultural base isn't ruined. "We are farmers. And, therefore, our interests as county commissioners is to be sure that farmland is not taken up by all housing divisions," says Mays.

Commissioners say they want to make sure growth is fostered within Thomas County's Urban Service District. That's a zone in which infrastructure from the City of Thomasville can be used.
