Consideration of an application for conditional use permit for an Automobile Sales, New and Used use to be located at 113 US Hwy 117 N.  UPDATE:  The Board of Commissioners approved the conditional use permit for auto sales.  


Development Code Re-Write

Due to recommendations made in the Burgaw 2030 Comprehensive Land Use Plan and inconsistencies found in the UDO reorganization, a re-write of the entire development ordinance has been recognized as a need by the Planning Board.  At the board's November 20, 2015 meeting, it elected to revise the development code in four large amendments, the first of which will be to bring the ordinance into compliance with recent legislation and court decisions.  The public hearing for that amendment was held on April 12, 2016, and the Board of Commissioners approved the amendment. 

The Planning Board has begun discussing the next phase of amendments regarding zoning districts and permitted and conditional uses and will be working on them over the next few months.
