Recycling center denied special use



“What I'm asking to do is exactly what I've been doing for the last seven to eight months,” the ACE owner said.

Before the vote Chambers voiced concerned about what the special use opens the city back up to.

• Complete Streets

Council withdrew the second reading of the City of Milledgeville's new Complete Streets Policy. Chambers asked for a work session to flesh out the policy.

“I would suggest to the city manager that we do schedule a work session,” Mayor Bentley said. 

Bentley also assigned a Bicycle Pedestrian advisory ad hoc committee made up of community health advocates along with Councilmen Chambers and Joiner to review the policy.

The policy ordinance draft currently reads that “roadways projects, to the extent practical, should accommodate all users of transportation system including pedestrians, bicyclists, users of mass transit, people with disabilities, the elderly, motorists, freight providers, emergency responders, golf carts and adjacent land users.”

• Moratorium placed on historic special use

The city accepted a temporary suspension of all rezoning applications for special use within the Milledgeville historic district for four months. Jarrett said the city would like the opportunity to look at the current code to see if any changes are necessary.

• Voting districts pass final council approval

After a second public hearing, the ordinance to establish the reapportioned election districts passed. 

This vote sends the redistricting blueprint to the Department of Justice (DOJ) for approval. Once submitted, the Justice Department has 60 days to comment and review the districts. 

The current version has the six districts falling at an optimal 8.81 percent deviation range from the target population of 2,748 per district.
