April 2024 – The Jackson County Board of County Commissioners is reviewing the land use regulations for Compass Lake in the Hills subdivision with the intent to vote to either modify them or eliminate them completely.  The Commissioners are considering this based on a few property owners advocating for changes such as:

  • Allow mobile homes on ALL properties in the subdivision
  • Allow businesses to operate on any property in the subdivision
  • Allow more than one residence on a lot, less than or equal in size to the ‘primary residence’
  • Others

You may view the County Commission meetings on YouTube at ‘Jackson County Board of County Commissioners’ to see the discussions.  Sections of the March 26th, 2024 special and regular meetings are of interest.
