UDO draft part 2 available, workshop March 25
by Anna Oakes
The draft will be reviewed at a public workshop on Monday, March 25, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Council Chambers, located at 1500 Blowing Rock Road. To review the second section of the UDO draft, download the document from the link to the right of this web page.
Planning staff have said that they hope to increase the number of uses that are permitted by right and decrease the number of uses that require a special use permit, which requires a public hearing and Board of Adjustment approval.
Staff members have also added many new types of uses to the table, and changes to some existing uses in zoning districts have been proposed as well.
The third and final portion of the draft UDO will be reviewed at a workshop on Tuesday, May 7, from 5 to 8 p.m. After the public workshops, staff will incorporate feedback and revise the document prior to a public hearing. The council could adopt the new UDO later this spring. For more information, call (828) 268-6200.
