Thomas Commissioners consider land use ordinance

March 27, 2006

Thomasville- Hundreds of people in Thomas County are expected to pack the County Commission meeting for a decision on a land use ordinance.

Proposed changes include requiring 10 acres of land before a home can be built and changing the size of agricultural parcels that could have residential lots from 25 acres to 50 acres. Commissioners say it would protect the county's agriculture, a 90 million dollar business in Thomas County.

"We're also wanting to use this as a protection for those Ag areas where we have whether it be forest land or woodlands, marsh lands or even our agriculture fields," said Josh Herring, Thomas Co. Commission Chairman.

Commissioners could either vote on the ordinance or allow the County's Charter Commission to decide if changes should be made.
