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.
We the city need to take as much county land as we need to facilitate housing for a growing city, this county has half a million and growing they all need affordable housing
This is a zoning case not an annexation case. Are you suggesting that Greensboro is meeting its growing needs by rezoning county land for Greensboro purposes? If so, this does not increase the tax base for Greensboro. However, that may not matter since Greensboro City Council has raised property taxes to level that hurts its residents. Are you a developer or a politician? Either way, both are equally repulsive.
Stack them higher. Stop cutting the woods down.
If all those townhouse subdevelopements were Triple Deckers, we could really make some coin.
Build housing higher not outward. There go the landowners will pull in more money. No need to let the country folk sell of and get some.
That is what the RHINO is about isn’t it? Business and land owners profiting.
You are about as smart as the south end of a north bound mule.
It will pass. Just follow the money and it is easy to see why the commissioners will pass the requests.
