Town council to hold public hearing on Monday
by Allison Haver
The public hearing will be in regard to a map amendment request from Standard at Boone LLC, a proposed student apartment and commercial development to take the place of the Red Carpet and Scottish Inn properties.
Representatives will appear before the council to request a conditional district map amendment approval to zone property to Conditional District B3 General Business for a site specific development plan for a mixed-use project containing commercial and multi-family uses.
While the Standard at Boone project, which would redevelop the Scottish Inn and Red Carpet Inn properties on Blowing Rock Road, was granted seven of the eight Unified Development Ordinance variances in April, the project will need to come before the Boone Area Planning Commission for a map amendment approval.
The amendment process includes a public hearing, which will take place on Monday, and then the planning commission will meet to form its recommendations to the Boone Town Council, after which the council will vote on the amendment.
