Rowan Planning Board to hold work sessions on land-use plan
The Rowan County Planning Board will hold its first work session Thursday on a proposed land-use plan for western Rowan County.
The session will start at 5 p.m. in the commissioners’ meeting room of the Cohen Administrative Offices Building, 130 W. Innes St.
Planning board members expect to review the 14 pages of recommendations drafted by the Land Use Steering Committee, which worked on the project for nearly a year.
Three additional dates have been set for more review, if it’s needed. Those sessions will be on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. All meetings will be at 5 p.m. in the Cohen Building.
All work sessions will be open to the public.
Public comment will be at the discretion of Terry Hill, chairman of the Planning Board.
Public comment is tentatively scheduled for the next Planning Board session Sept. 22 at 7 p.m.
Once the Planning Board completes its review and hears public comment, the 11-member panel will vote on whether to recommend approval or rejection of the plan to the Rowan County Board of Commissioners.
The board may also make recommendations regarding possible changes.
