Owner Of Land For Proposed Oconee Crossing Shopping Center Asks Court To Set Aside County’s Denial Of Rezone Request

***Claims Rights From 1990 Rezone***

Donald Hammett, contending that the Oconee County Board of Commissioners ignored his “vested rights” in the nearly 43 acres he wants to develop as Oconee Crossing Shopping Center, has filed suit to overturn the county’s denial of his rezone request.

Hammett said that he obtained his “vested rights” to develop the property as it was rezoned in 1990 when he purchased the property on the southeast corner of U.S. 78 and Hog Mountain Road in 2005.
