A zoning request that could have paved the way for 90 new homes on Spratlin Mill Road has been withdrawn.
Planning commission members refused (6-0) to give their approval last week to Morris Bullock, who told the planning commission that he wanted to rezone three parcels totaling approximately 116 acres adjacent to Spratlin Mill from A-1 and A-2 (agricultural) to R-1 (.75 acre minimum) to make way for “Phase V” of his existing residential development.
“I’m not wiling to put any covenants on the 120 acres that will affect it forever,” Bullock told the planning board. “… To be asked to put restrictive covenants on this size of a development is unreasonable.”
Some of Bullock’s Spratlin Mill neighbors said they took exception to his refusal to apply covenants that will protect the property value of their homes.
County commission chairman Wesley Nash announced Monday that Bullock’s request had been withdrawn.
