 A new housing development is being proposed in the Linn Creek area. The Camden County Planning Commission will hear the rezoning request for Caledonia Place, LLC Wednesday evening among other cases.

Builder Jake Wackerman is seeking to rezone a 61.7-acre tract and a 4.05 acre tract to low density residential or single-family residential. This R-1 zone would accommodate 18 proposed three-plus acre lots on Anderson Hollow Road East, Linn Creek.

The 61.7 acre piece is currently zoned general commercial and is part of a larger 158-acre tract. The 4.05 acre parcel is currently zoned agricultural and is part of a 200 acre tract.

The three other rezoning cases that will come before the planning commission July 18 are all reported as mis-zonings. These are properties that had established uses or subdivision zonings prior to county zoning implementation in 2004 that were mistakenly zoned by the county differently than what they were.

Mis-zoning is determined by the Camden County Commission based on evidence of prior use. Because state law requires all zonings to go through a public hearing process, the county commission does not charge a rezoning fee to properties believed to have been zoned in error.

Private Quarters at Porto Cima Property Owners Association, Inc. is seeking to rezone a 0.7 acre parcel at 15 Via Pendio, Sunrise Beach, from low density residential to medium density residential. According to the legal notice, this was mis-zoned being a part of Private Quarters prior to the implementation of zoning.

Rebekah and Gunther Lardizabal are seeking to rezone 2.9 acres on Wavy Leaf Drive, Linn Creek, from general commercial to low density residential. This was a residential property prior to the implementation of zoning, according to the county.

And Vicki L. Gardner is seeking to rezone 4.25 acres on Wavy Leaf Drive, Linn Creek, from general commercial to low density residential.

In addition to the rezonings at the public hearing stage, the planning commission should be ready to make a recommendation on a rezoning application by Jeremy and Rebecca Schaffer/Egolf for a low density to high density residential rezoning as well as three preliminary plats and a replat.
