The commission's vote places a 60 day moratorium on any subdivision zoning changes or applications and modifications to any rezoning already in place.
The moratorium expires the end of February.
Thomas County commissioners passed the motion 6-1, with one commissioner declining to vote.
Commissioners in support of the motion say the moratorium will allow the county to catch its breath after a recent surge in subdivision requests.
