Butts mega project worries High Falls residents

A huge economic development project which would largely be built in Butts County but encroaches into Lamar County, is a source of concern for High Falls residents and water quality activists. The proposed site plan for the Riverview (Butts County IDA) Industrial Park development of the Lamar County land currently zoned AR (Agricultural). The Butts County Industrial Development Authority has applied to change the zoning from AR to M1 or Light Industrial. The High Falls/Towaliga Watershed Alliance Directors & Officers have additional information such as details on what is permitted under this zoning. See their website Lamar zoning hearings on the project are set for Jan. 9 and Jan. 17. For more information on the hearings, contact zoning administrator Dan Gunter:
