The Morgan County Planning Commission met to discuss unfinished business concerning the request to construct two residential, two-family dwellings/duplexes on Bramblewood Drive. David Griffith who presented the request, is an experienced landlord from Madison who explained the need for workforce housing. “I would like to create a very nice place to live that is well maintained and affordable. I think it’s an excellent opportunity,” said Griffith. Planning Commission Member Connie Booth agreed with Griffith’s argument. “What we lack in this community desperately is good clean rental property,” stated Booth. Members of the Planning Commission were in unanimous agreement that this would be a great addition to the community. “I think projects like this ultimately could enhance the entire area. When you do a nice project sometimes it motivated others to do the same,” said Planning Commission Member Dennis Myers. Griffith’s request for the conditional use of two residential, two family dwellings/duplexes at 0 Bramblewood Drive were unanimously approved by the Planning Commission.
