The Cherokee County Commission today will consider a memorandum of understanding with an organization that could provide grant funding to its animal shelter.

Commissioners will consider the MOU with the Stanton Foundation and accept just over $200,000 in funding during its meeting tonight, which starts at 6 p.m. at the county administration building. 

The meeting will be preceded by a work session, which will start at 3 p.m., and a called meeting of the Resource Recovery Development Authority that will start at 4:30 p.m. 

The foundation would award $201,300 to the county. The agreement would stipulate that $18,300 would go directly to the animal shelter and the remaining balance would be used to engage animal welfare advocate Claudine Wilkins, who would develop a plan to promote the health and welfare of dogs and other animals. 

Commissioners will also review a notice of annexation by the city of Woodstock for 8.13 acres of land at 245 Rope Mill Road. Camellia Place, LLC is asking the city to annex and rezone the land from R-40 residential to senior living community.

The company would like to build 96-unit, campus style assisted living facility.
