LAND DEVELOPMENT REGULATIONS UPDATE

*LAND DEVELOPMENT REGULATIONS UPDATE*

The Town of Weaverville has been working on changes to the Town’s land development regulations that are required in order to comply with new North Carolina laws. The goal of the project was to provide land development regulations that are legally compliant, well-organized, user-friendly, and consistent with Town Council land development policy. While most of the new regulations do not involve changes in policy, the regulations pertaining to subdivisions and sidewalks have been changed to reflect a shift in Town Council policy on those subjects.

If you are interested in these new regulations the best place to start is the PowerPoint Presentation which provides an overview of the project and the changes that have been made.

The full drafts of the regulations can also be accessed along with a cross-reference table that links existing regulations to new regulations.

Town Council would like to provide advance notice to the public on these new regulations and receive public input. Weaverville staff will conduct information and public input sessions for that purpose on May 13 and May 19. Written comments are also welcomed up until May 24 at 1 pm by email to [email protected] , via drop boxes at Town Hall, or by mail to PO Box 338, Weaverville, NC, 28787. A public hearing before Town Council has also been scheduled for May 24 at 6 pm in the Community Room at Town Hall, 30 South Main Street, Weaverville. See the attached for more information, including how to review materials or provide input.
