Etowah Village postponed again after changes
FB DCN Government County
The chamber was buzzing in the lead up to the June 20 Board of Commission meeting. Several attendees showed up with snacks and were busy joking about being in for another three-hour meeting, referencing the two previous Etowah Village votes, which both went well into the night. But the discussion on the rezoning lasted only 15 minutes before a 4-0 vote tabled the proposal until the July 18 voting session. The rezoning proposal included a major change to the project — all of the development on the west side of the Etowah River had been removed, as had the entrance on Hwy 53. These two items were where a lot of the contention over the project originated.
