Attorney Bob Galloway presented this request to the board. Chairman Don Taylor questioned if the pump station issue had been resolved. Attorney Galloway stated the developer, Donny Tuten is willing to upgrade the pump station once instructed to do so by the City of Pooler. Chairman Taylor asked the petitioner if he and Mr. Robert Anderson had worked out an agreement regarding access to Mr. Anderson's property.  Attorney Galloway assured the board that this is a civil issue and should not be a concern of the Planning and Zoning Board. Mr. V. C. Mitchell, an adjacent property owner, was present to oppose Garden Acres, Phases XI, XII, and XIII as proposed by Donny Tuten. He further stated this proposed subdivision would land-lock his property, making it impossible to develop.

Mr. Leo McDonald, a resident of Skinner Avenue asked if there would be Tights on the pole and how it would affect his area. Attorney Yates stated his client is also concerned about this issue. He assured the residents along Skinner Avenue that there is a strong possibility it will not have any lights.

A motion was made by Larry Olliff to approve a height variance of 125' to place a 160' communication tower behind Food Lion on property owned by PV Shopping Center Partnership.  Motion was seconded by Fleta Pepper and passed without opposition.
