Zoning exception approved
Campground coming to Jefferson Road nearWest Union, as the result of action last night by the Oconee Board of Zoning Appeals. The board approved a special exception that’ll allow Ronnie Hughey to establish a 16-unit campground inside a lake residential district. Two conditions were attached to the approval: Hughey must obey all codes and ordinances of the county and he is required to have a registered engineer to submit a storm water pollution prevention plan. The special exception was granted on a 5-1 vote, with Paul Reckert opposed.
