The Guilford County Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing on an appeal of a proposed rezoning of approximately 30 acres of land at 413 NC 150 West. The request is to rezone the property from Agricultural and Residential Single Family (RS-40) to Conditional Zoning-General Business.
The hearing has been placed on the agenda for the board’s Thursday, August 4. The meeting that includes the public hearing begins at 5:30 p.m. and will be held in the Board of Commissioners meeting room on the second of the Old Guilford County Court House at 301 W. Market St. in downtown Greensboro.
The commissioners are expecting a good crowd for the hearing. The public notice states, “Given the number of interested parties and the time limits established for public hearings, it is strongly encouraged to coordinate with other proponents/opponents to ensure each side has an opportunity to make their case to the Board of Commissioners.”
At the hearing, proponents will be heard first for a total of 20 minutes no matter how many people want to speak. Opponents will be heard after the proponents and they’ll also be provided a total of twenty minutes.
As is usually the case in these types of debates, each side will be allowed three minutes of rebuttal after the other side has presented.
The board is alerting all potential speakers making their cases that they may use maps, photographs or diagrams. However, any materials used – including petitions that are presented to the Guilford County commissioners at the hearing – will remain with the county’s case file, and will not be returned. So people are encouraged to make copies of anything they wish to retain.
The county clerk’s office also notes, “Petitions with signatures in support of your request may be presented to the Guilford County Commissioners. Any petition should be presented in duplicate and clearly state the case number and the complete address of each person signing the petition.”
If you have any questions about the proceedings or the case, you can contact the Clerk to Board’s Office at 336-641-5532.
