The county commission will consider amending the ordinance to comply with recent changes in state law.

Cherokee Commission To Hold Hearing On Dangerous Dog Ordinance

The Cherokee County Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing on proposed changes to its ordinances in relation to the regulation of dangerous and vicious dogs on Tuesday.

The hearing will be held during the commission's regular meeting, which starts at 6 p.m. The commission will also hold a work session at 3 p.m. Both meetings will take place at the county administration building.

The commission will also consider a lease agreement with the Woodstock Downtown Development Authority, which would allow the authority to use its trolley between Nov. 30 and Dec. 27. The trolley will be used as a trial period to measure its popularity with residents. 

Commissioners will also consider two rezoning requests. One request, from R & D Mechanical Services, Inc., is asking the county to rezone 2.13 acres of land at 3448 Holly Springs Parkway near Donna Way from office industrial to light industrial for the purpose of office warehouse space. 

The Cherokee County Planning Commission recommended approval with a condition to provide a year round vegetative screen on the front side of the building along Holly Springs Parkway.  

County commissioners will also consider a rezoning request from Dempsey Funeral Services of Georgia, Inc. The company is asking the county to rezone two parcels on 28 acres along Highway 92 at Woodstock Road in southwest Cherokee County from R-40 residential and neighborhood commercial to general commercial. The proposed use of the property would be for ccemetery and funeral services.
