Oconee answers latest zoning challenge

August 30, 2012

An attorney for Oconee County has answered the latest legal challenge to the county’s zoning rules and regulations. James Logan Jr., the attorney, is mounting a defense on 10 grounds to the suit filed last month for Lillie Davis, Jean Jennings, David and Michelle McMahan, and the estate of Wallace McMahan. The plaintiffs want a judge to strike down Oconee’s agricultural residential zoning classification as a violation of the state’s Right to Farm Act. But Logan says the county takes issue with the plaintiffs’ description of the right to farm law and contends the county has no liability in any amount. The county also takes the position that the plaintiffs failed to challenge the validity of the zoning law within 60 days of its passage. The plaintiffs filed their complaint for a declaratory judgment July 13 in the Oconee Common Pleas Court.
