Opponents of Whitmire's proposal at a Hall County Planning Commission meeting last October.
GAINESVILLE - Tim Whitmire's plans to develop a boat storage facility on Lake Lanier were rejected by the Hall County Board of Commissioners Thursday night in the face of continued neighborhood opposition.

The site Whitmire had chosen was at the end of Mountain View Road in the southern part of the county. He was asking that the four-acre site be rezoned from Single Family Residential to Planned Commercial District. His plans called for a 116-bay facility.

People who live and own property in that area had been fighting the proposal since its inception.

Also Thursday night, the commission tabled until a later meeting plans for a multi-use development on Georgia 365 north of Gainesville.
