  • A highly contested zoning case is scheduled to be reopened before the Camden County Planning Commission Wednesday evening, Aug. 20.
    Portions of the development plan and related P&Z overlays for land owned by Gary D. Prewitt Living Revocable Trust and Enowski Farms, Inc. were sent back to the board by the Camden County County Commission over concerns regarding unconsidered letters from the public were brought up by citizens in a hearing in June.
    The planning commission had recommended approval of the plans this spring for the tract on Bittersweet Rd. in the Horseshoe Bend area. The board members did not, however, take into account more than 100 letters against the proposal as the letters came in after deadline. Little opposition was heard at the planning commission's hearing either.
    According to subsequent testimony at the county commission hearing, it was stated that many residents had not been made aware of the issue in time to get a letter in or attend the previous hearing.
    An underlying zoning of low density residential was approved by the county commission in June as was a portion of the proposal for a commercial overlay for a 2.2 acre satellite parking area for Shady Gators Waterfront Bar & Grill. But the county commission sent back for further review the parts related to a general store and nightly rental resort cabins on the remaining 26.45 acres.
    The tract as a whole has been in the process of undergoing initial zoning after mistakenly going unzoned for years following the implementation of county zoning in 2004 due to a mapping error that showed the property in the Village of Four Seasons.
