Work Session

1. Major Corridor Overlay Zoning Districts: The unzoned major corridors were zoned to RA-40 and then the existing businesses/industries were considered individually. The consultant and Planning Board forwarded recommendations in July 2008 based on the Major Corridor Task Force draft of January 2008. Remaining issues involved are as follows: A. Which of the recommendations does the Board want to move forward for legal review? B. Legal review by County Attorney. C. Various dates for public hearing considering legally required mailings and posting.

2. Follow-up Major Corridor Business Zonings: A. Discussion about property owned by Derek Grimes at 1724 Lutterloh Road (parcel #76315) in relation to the corridor business rezonings. This is a follow-up to the comments made by Mr. Grimes during the April 27, 2009 corridor rezoning public hearing. B. Discussion to schedule the public hearing date for property owned by Anthony and Joanne Bright at 8240 NC #87 South (Parcel #18402) to rezone a portion of the property to Light Industrial. This is a continuation of a discussion from the May 18, 2009 Commissioners’ meeting.

3. Rural Center Economic Infrastructure Grant Question: Consideration of a grant application for Rural Center - Joe Mosnier is attempting to secure grant funding for his project on Mann’s Chapel Road. This is an Economic Development project that will create jobs for the County. There are some matching fund requirements and the septic system being proposed would require a public entity to own the system. We have a potential solution to that requirement which is being fleshed out as the agenda goes. (We will have a short presentation by Lisa West and Joe Mosnier if time permits.) (Attachment: Letter of Intent)
