Land Use Steering Committee will continue review of western Rowan plan

Staff report
The Rowan County Land Use Steering Committee will continue reviewing a plan for western Rowan during a meeting at 7 p.m. today.
Earlier this month, the committee voted to put recommendations concerning farmland preservation and other issues back into the plan, which is called the general study report.
The committee will consider the revised plan and vote on additional items or changes.
Initially, county planners had removed farmland preservation, proposals to create a heritage tourism plan and similar initiatives from the main study report. Those recommendations were combined in a document identified as a “strategic appendix.”
Jason Epley with Benchmark, the Kannapolis-based firm assisting with the plan, will discuss upcoming workshops.
Once the committee receives public input and makes any changes or revisions, the report will go to the Rowan County Planning Board for a public hearing prior to going to the Board of Commissioners for a final hearing and consideration.
The Land Use Steering Committee will meet in the Cohen Administration Building, 130 W. Innes St.
