County commissioners and Planning Board members will hear a slew of requests for rezonings tonight, including one that would create a major subdivision on Reepsville Road.
The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. in the Commissioners Room in the James W. Warren Citizens Center.
Residents are invited to comment on the applications. After the public hearings, the Planning Board will meet and decide on a recommendation to the Board of Commissioners.
Larry Clark is requesting a parallel conditional use rezoning to rezone 286 acres from Residential Single-Family and Transitional Residential to Conditional Use Planned Mixed-Use.
The land is located on Reepsville Road at the South Fork River. If approved, Clark wants to develop a major subdivision with 108 lots for single-family dwellings, 75 lots for village houses or twin houses, 20 condominiums and a nine-acre commercial section.
County staff has received no opposition to the proposal so far, said Kelly Atkins, director of Building and Lane Development. Some residents have inquired about the plans.
There are two applications to rezone residential land to commercial. Both affect property in Catawba Springs township.
Timothy Proctor is requesting to rezone less than half an acre at 4774 N.C. 16 North from Residential Suburban to General Business.
A house currently sits on the land. Proctor said in his rezoning application that he wants to sell the land for development.
Bobby Poole wants to rezone just over a half-acre on Beth Haven Church Road from R-T to Conditional Use Neighborhood Business to accommodate an auto sales lot.
Poole has agreed to a condition that there not be more than 12 cars on display at a time.
