1974 The Ongoing Question of Zoning

74 1120 03

Nov 20, 1974

Kennon Peebles was one of the people surveyed about the possibility of Soperton having a Zoning ordinance. Kennon supported the idea to keep property values up. The County Commissioners passed a Zoning Ordinance a few years later and quickly abandoned it. The debate continues as whether a property owner has unlimited discretion or whether others should be allowed to have a say to protect a neighborhood, a city, or a county.

Others that week: Fowler-Lawton House, football, Charles Hazen, American Cancer Society.
