The Jackson County Board of Commissioners recently approved the rezoning of a controversial 90-acre tract at Hog Mountain Rd. and Storey Ln. near Jefferson for a mixed-use development.

The outcome wasn't too much in doubt — the rezoning had been initiated by the BOC itself in an unusual move designed to thwart a lawsuit over the property's zoning.

The board had previously denied rezoning the property to industrial for a warehouse following an outcry by area residents. The property owners then sued the county over the denial.
