Planning board meets Tuesday
The Salisbury Planning Board will reconsider a rezoning request that was denied last year.
Six landowners will ask the board to rezone 3.2 acres in the 1900 and 2000 block of East Innes Street from General Residential to Residential Mixed-Use, a higher-density zoning.
The request itself has not changed. Planning Board denied it last year while awaiting the final Eastern Gateway Area Plan. Now complete, the plan can help guide the boardís decision when members meet at 4 p.m. Tuesday in City Hall.
The six parcels are located along the north side East Innes Street just south of the Social Security Administration.
The Planning Board is under new leadership. Members recently elected Richard Huffman as chairman and Bill Wagoner as vice chairman for 2011-12.
Huffman is an attorney, and Wagoner is a builder and industrial-commercial developer.
Two Planning Board committees will meet in City Hall at 3 p.m. Tuesday, one hour before to the full board meets at 4. One committee will discuss open space, and another will discuss the land use matrix.
All meetings are open to the public.
