Rowan County commissioners meeting agenda

The Rowan County Board of Commissioners will consider changes to the countyís addressing ordinance Tuesday.
A public hearing on the amendments will be held at the boardís meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday on the second floor of the J. Newton Cohen Sr. Rowan County Administration Building.
According to a memo from County GIS Coordinator Adrian Rollans, the objectives of amending the ordinance were ěto streamline the process for road naming/address changes for the Board of Commissioners,î ěto clarify administrative assignment of addressesî and ěto define and establish address procedures for greenways/trails and campgrounds.î
Changes include a new definition of greenways and an amended definition of structures to include campers. Text also has been added to establish the importance of posting addresses to emergency response.
According to the memo, the changes would reduce the amount of road petitions coming before the board, as well as save property owners time in getting new addresses assigned and inspections completed.
Also at Tuesdayís meeting, commissioners plan to:
Consider an ordinance supporting the continuance of the state Alcoholic Beverage Control System and opposing any efforts to privatize it.
Hold a public hearing for a special use permit for Orica USA at 2075 High Rock Road in Gold Hill.
Orica wants to locate a 1,344-square-ft. modular office building on an existing graveled area currently used for industrial truck parking.
Hold a public hearing for the proposed road name of Trexler Memorial Lane for an unnamed road off N.C. Highway 152.
Discuss legislative goals proposed by the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners.
Receive the Community Child Protection Teamís annual report for 2010.
Consider several budget amendments.
