Commissioners to hear rezoning requests



Staff Writer


Lincoln County’s Board of Commissioners will meet tonight to discuss the fate of several zoning requests.

At the board’s last meeting, applicant Xiaopei Guo submitted a request to amend a conditional zoning district to permit an 8,160 square-foot retail sales facility with upper-story offices. The 0.69-acre parcel is located on the north side of N.C. Business, about 300 feet east of Burnwood Trail in the Catawba Springs Township. The Planning Board voted 8-0 to recommend approval.

The Planning Board also voted 8-0 to recommend approval for a request for a conditional use permit to exceed 36 percent impervious surface area in the Hoyle Creek WS-IV Protected Area as a special nonresidential intensity allocation. Applicant C4 Development, LLC, has proposed to develop 2.2 acres, including 1.5 acres within the watershed district with 55 percent impervious surface area, for a Family Dollar store. The property is located on the northeast corner of N.C. 27 and Randleman Road in the Ironton Township.

County Commissioners will hear a motion from The Lincoln County Public Library to apply for the Library Services and Technology Act EZ Innovation Grant. If approved, the library hopes to use the $17,750 LSTA EZ Innovation Grant to help develop a database of local organizations, agencies and resources with information about services, locations and events.

According to Library Director Jennifer Sackett, the database would serve as a clearinghouse for local information and resources to serve citizens.

Director of Public Works Donald Chamblee, Jr. and Director of Parks and Recreation Erma Deen Hoyle are seeking approval to award the contract for the expansion and renovation of the East Lincoln Community Center.

Lincoln County Parks and Recreation would like to award the contract to Eagle Wood, Inc. in the amount of $1,047,767. The money would be used to construct additional space for meetings and events as well as restrooms and concessions for East Lincoln Park. Construction bids for the expansion and renovation of the community center were originally received on Dec. 19.

Other agenda items include:

  • A motion to adopt a Naming Policy for the Parks and Recreation facilities and programs.
  • An annual report from the Nursing and Adult Care Home Community Advisory Committee.
  • A motion to approve engineering services to design an eastbound turn lane on Optimist Club at Airlie Park.
  • An agreement to Approve a Fleet Services Maintenance Contract between Lincoln County and Lincoln County Schools.
  • County Commissioners will meet tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the Citizens Center in Lincolnton.
