The Pitt County Planning Board will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at or after 5:30pm regarding proposed amendments to the Pitt County Zoning Ordinance. This hearing will be held in the Eugene James Auditorium on the second floor of the County Administration Building located at 1717 W. 5th Street, Greenville, NC.
The proposed amendments to the Pitt County Zoning Ordinance have been initiated by the Pitt County Planning Department for the following purposes: (1) to implement the recommendations of the Southwest Bypass Land Use Plan, including creation of overlay zoning districts for the Renston Rural Historic District and Southwest Bypass Highway Corridor, establishing cluster development regulations, and enhancing lighting standards for non-residential land uses; (2) to consolidate all conditional and special uses into a single permit to be heard by the Pitt County Board of Adjustment; (3) to amend the submittal requirements for Conditional District Rezonings; (4) to clarify that mail cluster box units are allowed on a Special Purpose Lot; and (5) to correct a numbering error and typo in Section 13.
The purpose of the public hearing is to gather public comment and input on the proposed amendments which will allow the Pitt County Planning Board to make a well informed and educated recommendation to the Pitt County Board of Commissioners. The Board of Commissioners will hold a separate public hearing for consideration of the proposed amendments. Citizens interested in obtaining additional information on the proposed amendments should contact the Pitt County Planning Department (252-902-3250).
