The Monroe County Planning & Zoning board approved by a 3-0 vote on Monday to allow River Edge Behavioral Health to build a personal care home on Zdlner Road. River Edge chief fadlities development officer Cass Hatcher asked the P & Z board for a conditional use variance in agriculta zoning to allow for a personal care home on a 2.99-acre tract at 1962 Zellner Road. He said the proposed 2,400 square-foot commu- nity group home will have four bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms and will look similar to surrounding houses. Hatcher said the facility would have a full- time service provider and would be built using federal Depart- ment of Housing and Urban De- velopment grant funds. He said there are seven such fadlifies in Macon. River Edge CEO Dr. Shan- non Gordon, a Forsyth resident, also pledged her support for the project, nol ng that it would give devdopmenudly disabled residents of Monroe County a safe phce to live Dumas Road resident Priscilla Grant Doster, who has served on the River Edge advisory board for the past 15 years, said she has been trying for years to get funding to build a personal care home in Monroe County. She said the ones like it in Macon are well-maintained with continual care and said their residents benefit from having their own home HopeweU Road resident Mar- tie Brown said she has an adult special needs son, Chandler, and said Monroe County has a need for this type of community personal care home She said its residents would become "a little f~m~ytogethee.' Another proponent of the project, Carol Davison, agreed with Brown that the local need for a personal care home is great, saying she is presently taking care of an adult who is devel- opmentally disabled due to an accident. Only one person, Zellner Road resident Cheryl Pinholster, opposed the pmposed project, saying she didn't think it was the fight location for such a home. Pinholster said the area is heavily wooded and said she was concerned about the safety of the home's residents. After about 10 minutes of discussion, P & Z member Red Ezdle motioned to approve, which was seconded by Chuck Benson. The P 8 Z board then voted to approve the conditional use with chairwoman Connie Gantt abstaini Gantt, who said she's personally in support of the personal care home, said she abstained because she has worked with River Edge. Monroe County Commis- sioners were expected to have the final say on the matter at their next scheduled meeting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 5.
