County Zoning Board to meet Tuesday, elect officers

Without any business to deal with for almost two years, the county’s Zoning Board of Adjustment has gotten a little rusty.
The board, which hears appeals from the zoning administrator, has several new members who have never heard a case.
The board will meet Tuesday to elect officers and go through a training session in preparation for its first case coming up in May.
Gwen Graham, of Cleveland, and Rodney Goins, of Salisbury, are the longest-serving members, having been appointed in 2003. Jim Ogg, of Salisbury, also served on the previous board, appointed in 2006.
Members appointed since the board last met include: Patricia Gilbert, of Salisbury; Jeff Morris, of Spencer; and alternates, Jack Fisher and Glenn Shimmel, both of Salisbury.
Steve Davenport, a planner from China Grove who has worked for several decades in planning and as a consultant, will discuss the role and duties of the Zoning Board of Adjustment.
And the board is scheduled to amend its procedural rules to reflect its smaller size. In April 2007, commissioners reduced the board from seven members and three alternates to five members and two alternates.
The board will also elect new officers. The last time the board met, in December 2007, Raymond Coltrain was chairman. Coltrain is now a county commissioner.
At the outset of the meeting, Rowan County Magistrate Bretta Matthews will administer the oath of office to new members.
The Zoning Board of Adjustment meets at 5:30 p.m. in the Cohen Administrative Office Building, 130 W. Innes Street.
