The Guilford County Planning Board will get its start on 2022 when it holds its first meeting of the year on Wednesday, Jan. 12 at 6 p.m. at the NC Cooperative Extension-Agricultural Center in Greensboro.
The agenda for the New Year will include three evidentiary hearings – including one involving over 1.9 acres on North Church Street, and the board is inviting public input.
Some of the cases are continued from 2021.
The public hearings on the agenda are as follows…
- Conditional zoning case to rezone land at 5904 and 5908 Church Street from Agricultural and Limited Business to Conditional Zoning-Limited Business. The 1.926 acres, owned by Buster Glosson, is just north of the NC 150 intersection with North Church Street.
The proposed Conditional Zoning-Limited Business designation includes the following restrictions: “Permitted uses shall include all uses allowed in the LB District, except for the following: (a) Cemetery or Mausoleum; and (b) Land Clearing & Inert Debris Landfill.”
There are additional conditions as well.
The proposed zoning is consistent with the existing Northern Lakes Area Plan – which designates the area near the intersection of Church Street and Highway 150 as a “Moderate Commercial Node.”
There are other rezonings to consider as well that evening:
- Case to consider rezoning land in the Jamestown Township from RS-40 (Single-Family Residential) to Agricultural at 927, 929, 1007-Zz and 1103 Bales Chapel Road. The case involves just over five acres owned jointly by Brian Timothy Smalls and Karen Small Spangler.
The proposed rezoning is consistent with the county’s Southwest Area Plan.
- Conditional Zoning from Mixed And Agricultural to Conditional Zoning – Light Industrial. The request involves 166 acres on the 700 block of Knox Road, the 5400 block of Marley Drive and the 1000 block of Bloomfield Road.
The proposed rezoning to Conditional Zoning – Light Industrial includes the following conditions: “All uses permitted within the LI zoning district, with the exception of: (1) Go-Cart Raceway; (2) Cemetery or Mausoleum; and (3) Construction or Demolition Debris Landfill.”
This rezoning would require modification of the Northeast Area Plan.

As neighbors, we learned just last week that this land would be used to build a Dollar General across the road from the Lowes Food on Church St. Today we find out that the land will be rezoned for that purpose. It’s right next to a gas station that’s not been rebuilt since burning over a year ago. Most of the comments on the local website about this store are not favorable, as there are three of these stores within about 5 miles to the East, South, and West. This doesn’t seem like a reasonable use of the land when the shopping center still has room for this store to be built. The gas station had been there for decades but otherwise, there’s been no other commercial growth north of E 150 HWY and shouldn’t be now.
1.926 acres, not 1,900.
Thanks. It’s amazing what a difference a missing decimal point makes.
