PURPOSE:

City of Greensboro is requesting original zoning from County AG (Agricultural) to City LI (Light Industrial) for a portion of Interstate 40/Business 85 Right of Way located south and west of McConnell Road.

 

As this request is associated with a voluntary annexation petition, the City Council will conduct a public hearing to consider and take action on this request at its May 21, 2019 meeting.

 

BACKGROUND:

Following a public hearing on April 15, 2019, the Zoning Commission voted 7-0 to recommend approval of this request.  There were no speakers on this item.  (See minutes of the April 15, 2019 Zoning Commission meeting).  This request is associated with an adjacent voluntary annexation petition for property along McConnell Road (PLZ 19-17).  Per N.C.G.S 160A-31(F), property that is owned by a public entity such as the State of North Carolina may be annexed if said property connects other property petitioning for annexation to the City’s primary corporate limits.    

 

BUDGET IMPACT:

This item will have no budget impact.

 

RECOMMENDATION / ACTION REQUESTED:

The Zoning Commission recommended approval of this request 7-0.

 

Planning recommends approval of the LI zoning request based on:

 

                     Request is consistent with the Growth at the Fringe goal to promote sound, sustainable land use patterns that provide for the efficient provision of public services and facilities.

 

                     Request is consistent with the Community Facilities goal to provide community facilities, services, and infrastructure in a cost-effective manner to meet citizens’ needs, contribute to quality of life, and support desired land use patterns.
