    Members of the Scott County Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) held an unusually long hearing on October 14 so that those concerned about a Jeffersonville-based religious group's plans for development at the old Marysville Pay Lake property could voice their opinions.
    Joseph Mullen is the construction manager for Voice of God Recordings Inc., the religious group which wants to develop the area into a campground and overnight facility for its members and its youth. Mullen and Daniel Evans, Voice of God public relations officer, presented those plans before the BZA and some 20 people that evening. BZA members present included chairman Gary Green, Sandee Owens, Dale Hobbs and Don Wilkerson. Also present was Area Plan Commission Director Jamie Knowles.
    The group wanted a Conditional Use Variance (CUV) to allow the development of a Christian retreat at the lake, located on South Pleasant Ridge Road in Lexington Township. Mullen said Voice of God is a missionary group which operates worldwide to enrich people with the Christian experience as well as provide counseling and guidance. Voice of God is also in the recording and publishing business. The group's website offers more information on the business and church activities.
