CHIPLEY – Washington County Planning Commission approved land use changes and a development review application when they met in regular session on October 2.

Ron Novonglosky and Samuel Miller each requested to change portions of their land from agriculture to Low Density Residential. Novonglosky’s 12.7 acre tract is located at 1159 Mockingbird Lane and Miller’s 7 acre tract is located at 1170 Mockingbird Lane.

Novonglosky says his request for the change is due to the possibility of building a home in the future on the site. Miller asks to change his for possible home building as well.

Both requests were unanimously approved.

Courts of Praise Church, located at 1720 Clayton Road, submitted a request for a development review application for a 2,276 square foot addition to their existing site. The church plans to expand on their fellowship hall and improve their parking lot.

Commissioner John Gay asked about the stormwater runoff and how that would be handled. County Planner Steve Cramer stated it had been approved by engineers.

“Engineers have approved the stormwater management plan on our end,” said Cramer. “Everything is set to move ahead.”

Nestle Waters of North America is expected to be on the agenda at the next regular session of the planning commission to request land use changes to tracts of land at Cypress Spring.

Washington County Planning Commission will meet again in regular session at 5 p.m. on November 6.
