A zoning change request during the Bryan County Commission meeting on Tuesday drew in a larger crowd than usual. This all comes as residents are demanding smart and responsible growth.

A local developer is requesting to change 15-acres on Belfast River Road from agricultural zoning to residential.

Town home development plans were shown and discussed as the public weighed in. Many voicing their concerns about the impacts the project would have on the surrounding community.

After listening and considering all the feedback from both sides, commission voted to deny the request.

"There is a place for town homes, in every community I feel like, just not this place. I mean, not where we're talking," said Brad Brookshire.

The vote to deny the zoning change request was unanimous.
