The Coffee County Commission approved a redevelopment plan for Oak Park, building roof renovations for the county ag building, and covered a couple of items relating to re-zoning and road construction at Monday’s regular county commission meeting.

Regarding road construction, the county approved service agreements with Statewide Surveying to begin three road projects: EL Curtis Road ($10,703), Forest Hill Drive and Ridge Point Drive ($12,552.46), and Dewberry Road ($32,119.52). The Dewberry Road project will be in next year’s allocation and includes special requirements due to the presence of wetlands.

The county also approved roof renovations at the ag building, awarding the project to South Georgia Coating of Hazlehurst in the amount of $25,000. The commission will also proceed with filing the 2015 CDBG application after establishing that no conflict of interest exists with any commissioners and the planned projects. The commission also approved a resolution to proceed with the Oak Park redevelopment plan and heard the first reading of a request from Ramon Peacock to re-zone a tract of land from C-2 Commercial to R-2 Residential. The second reading and public hearing will take place at a later date.
