Henry County Government has a busy calendar for rezoning requests during the month of January 2022. In total, eleven rezoning requests are on the calendar for either zoning advisory board or board of commissioners to consider.

The boards will conduct public hearings when considering each rezoning request. Speakers may address the board either in favor or opposed to the applicant’s request. All meetings occur at the county admin building in McDonough. (updates added in bold)
