TITLE
Vote on a request to approve Chatham County Board of Commissioners to amend Section 10.13, Table of Permitted Uses, of the Zoning Ordinance to revise multiple uses in the Light and Heavy Industrial zoning districts that are currently permitted by right to conditional use permits.

ABSTRACT

Action Requested:
Request by the Chatham County Board of Commissioners to amend Section 10.13, Table of Permitted Uses, of the Zoning Ordinance to revise multiple uses in the Light and Heavy Industrial zoning districts that are currently permitted by right to conditional use permits.

Introduction & Background:
On August 15, 2016, the Chatham County Board of Commissioners discussed revising the uses listed in Section 10.13 Table of Permitted Uses under the industrial district designations. With the growth of the county and promotion of two potential industrial sites in the county, the commissioners thought that a review of all the uses under the industrial designations was warranted. At the conclusion of the discussion the commissioners decided that some uses should be changed from permitted (P) to conditional uses (CU). A public hearing was scheduled and advertised.

The legislative public hearing was held September 19, 2016. Planning staff presented the text amendment and no one provided input on the request. The matter was referred to the Planning Board for review and recommendation.

On October 4, 2016, the Planning Board met to review the proposed changes to the Table of Permitted uses that the Board of Commissioners had recommended. During their review and discussions, additional uses were added that Planning Board members thought should also be processed as a Conditional Use Permit in order to address any secondary impacts.
