TITLE
A request by Richard Broedell, Sr. to rezone Parcel No. 5576, being 5.92 acres, Cape Fear Township, located on New Elam Church Road, from R-1 Residential to Light Industrial.
ABSTRACT

Action Requested:
Vote on a request by Richard Broedell, Sr. to rezone Parcel No. 5576, being 5.92 acres, Cape Fear Township, located on New Elam Church Road, from R-1 Residential to Light Industrial.
Introduction & Background:
A legislative public hearing was held on March 19, 2018. Patrick Bradshaw, attorney for the applicant, made a presentation to the Board. No one else spoke on the matter and planning staff has had no calls or comments submitted.

The property is located adjacent to New Elam Church Road and US 1, a controlled access 4 lane divided median highway. The adjoining properties to the north and west east are zoned R1, Residential and are primarily wooded with limited use and one dwelling is located approximately 250' of the northern property boundary. The property on the east side of New Elam Church Road was rezoned to Light Industrial in December...
