The board discussed possible frameworks for approving or denying parking pads. Parking pads are not allowed to be built in the town’s right of way, but the board has approved some when homeowners have directly sought the board's permission for an exception. No action was taken.
The board approved a property owner’s request to annex approximately 6.25 acres at 202 Holiday Park Road. The board then voted to amend the Future Land Use Plan designation from Rural Living to Retail Services and to zone the property General Commercial. The property was formerly used for a Moose Lodge. The owners have said they plan to create storage units in the buildings on site.
At the request of a developer, the board rezoned almost 2 acres on the north side of West King Street between Nash and Hayes streets from Residential-15 to Residential-10 to accommodate the construction of new homes.
The board voted to accept as a gift 0.8 acres of land at the eastern intersection of Meadowlands Drive and U.S. 70A.
