Planning board to elect chair, vice chair

The Rowan County Planning Board will elect a new chairman and vice chairman Monday.
It also will recognize outgoing members Mike Caskey, Ann Furr and Terry Hill; reappointed members Greg Edds and John Linker; and new members Bill Brown, Craig Pierce and Joe Teeter.
The planning board will meet at 7 p.m. Monday on the second floor of the J. Newton Cohen Sr. Administration Building, 130 W. Innes St., Salisbury.
Also at the meeting, the board will discuss two versions of text amendments to the farmland preservation ordinance. It will then recommend one to county commissioners.
One version approved by the Rowan County Agricultural Advisory Board would continue to give that board authority to approve or revoke agricultural district applications.
According to another version approved by the planning board, the agricultural advisory board could only make recommendations to the Board of Commissioners for final decision-making.
In addition, the planning board will discuss a rezoning Monday of 1.06 acres at 4725 Long Ferry Road from rural agricultural to commercial, business and industrial. This would allow a vacant convenience store to be used as a funeral home.
