Hearings start Monday on recycling facility rezoning

Two public hearings have been scheduled on a proposal to rezone a 4.84-acre site on Hwy. 341 South for use as a recycling facility. The property is currently zoned C-2 (highway commercial). The owners want that changed to M-2 (general manufacturing). The first hearing will be conducted by the planning commission at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 10. The second will be before the county commission at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 18. A final decision is expected at the commission meeting. The property in question is the former Southern Nursery Products facility. Prior to that it was Anderson’s Store. It is now owned by 314 Barnesville LLC with offices in Locust Grove. Its registered agent is Paulette Bunn. According to a letter from Bunn on file at the zoning office, her son, Andrew Carey (Buck) Bunn III, is in the business of dismantling farm and construction equipment. Buck Bunn wants to resell salvaged parts and much of that business is done online but a resale facility for used parts will be set up in the buildings on the site. The plan calls for an office and support staff in the building and the sale of trucks and equipment there. All equipment tear down will be down at the rear of the building, according to the letter. A board fence has been erected at the site and will be painted. According to the letter, Bunn has acquired a business license and plans to move his family here. Paulette and Carey Bunn Jr. operate the Bunn Family Ranch in Redbone. The property in question is located on the south side of Hwy. 341. It is bordered on the west by the old Kiwanis Fairgrounds and Buggytown Auction and on the east by Southern Rivers Energy. For more information, contact the county zoning office at 770-358-5364.
