Update on 'Breach of Covenant' by Neely Farms:
(Note: emphasis added Below by blog author)
MISC NEWTON COUNTY TAX INFO FOR MOSQUE PROPERTY
1) RE: ‘Letter of Intent’ from James F Neely, Jr, Managing partner of Neely Farms Family Limited Partnership LLC.
Minor error in his submission, in that the 2 Tax Parcels acreage are reversed.
Tax Parcel 00500-00000-001-000 is listed at 71.74 acres
Tax Parcel 00500-00000-001-B00 is listed at 63.75 acres
County Tax Records reflect that the acreage is reversed, the top one should be 63.75 acres and the 2nd one should be 71.74 acres. Not a real big deal, but wrong.
2) The 2015 Tax bills for Neely Farms Family Limited Partnership LLLP show 2 tax bills each as below. The smaller first Tax Bill then a second flagged as “Breach of Covenant”, I’ll let you take your best guess at that, probably when sold it put the land into a different tax rate. Here is the info FYI:
Tax Parcel 00500-00000-001-000
$449.07 then 2nd bill, the Breach of Covenant at $2,658.75
Tax Parcel 00500-00000-001-B00
$461.44 then 2nd bill, the Breach of Covenant at $3,250.64
The 2016 Tax Notices are in the name of:
Al Maad Al Islami Inc, 2674 Woodwin Rd, Doraville, Ga 30360
Tax Parcel 00500-00000-001-000 $2,888.10
Tax Parcel 00500-00000-001-B00 $3,250.64

MAKES GOOD SENSE TO DELAY THE MATTER
It isn't unreasonable to have an important zoning issue delayed until it can be considered by a reconfigured Board and perhaps a new Chairman.
PUBLIC HEARING SET FOR 9/20/16 ABOUT THE MOSQUE APPLICATION.
For those not familiar with the area -
here are a few photos from Google Earth, best to go there yourself and take a look, much better views than these few screen shots.
This is the entrance to the Avery Place Subdivision which is just across Hwy #162 from the Mosque land. Homes there are in the 125-130K range. Despite claims by Managing Partner Mr. James Neely of Neely Farms Family Limited Partnership no trace can be found for anything called "Avery Community Church and Cemetery", thus making his earlier 'Letter of Intent' appear bogus with an attempt to mislead the County.
Running across the middle of the below is Hwy 162, leading off that to the top of the photo is County Line Road W. Note that the U shaped building is the County Line Baptist Church and you can see existing grave yards on both sides of 162.
Better view of the County Line Baptist Church
At the top of the below photo is County Line Road W, on the left side is Hwy 162 and you can see the County Line Baptist Church where the roads intersect, a bit further down and on the left you see part of the Avery Place Subdivision and Avery Drive leading into it.
Obviously the big green part which takes up the rest of the photo is most of the 135.5 acres the Mosque now owns.
And here is notice of a name and officer change effective 6/21/16. The LLC is now known as 'Neely Management Company, LLC' with Sandra Neely Bowden as President.
