If you’ve been wondering about something in your community, Ask The Times is your place to get answers. The following question was submitted by a reader and answered through the efforts of our news staff.

Is there an online way to view the information contained on the yellow zoning notices that are posted along roads at property sites?

The signs, which are put up by area governments to alert residents to an upcoming public hearing concerning the property, contain information that can be found online.

Those interested can visit the Hall County Planning Commission’s webpage to view upcoming and past agendas. Clicking on any agenda link will lead you to a page with much more information — such as maps — than the roadside signs contain.

Hall County also has a webpage that allows users to view planning agendas dating to 2014.

In Gainesville, residents can view detailed agenda items online, as well. PDFs of agendas can be downloaded at that site.

Detailed Flowery Branch planning matters are included in City Council agendas, which can be found online. Oakwood’s website features planning commission agendas but without the detail of other government sites.

Braselton planning items can be found online.

As an aside, the yellow signs are in unincorporated Hall County. Other governments may feature a different sign color and design.

Gainesville, for example, has white zoning signs with red lettering.
