Council to create zoning category
HUBBARD -- City council has decided to create a zoning category so apartments can't be built in or around Pine Lakes Golf Club.
Lawmakers made the decision during Monday night's council session after some residents complained the city has no protection against apartment construction.
Pine Lakes Golf Club Estates has been proposing for two years a $55 million development that calls for the construction of single-family houses and condominiums.
However, the city doesn't have a zoning category that permits only condos. Rather, the category allows for multiple-family dwellings, thus apartment buildings.
