Landis tables North Main Street zoning request

LANDIS — The owner of a North Main Street property has been trying to sell it for sometime, but felt as if the home could be used for more than just a house. The property, 319 N. Main St., was the topic of Monday night’s town board meeting as a request for zoning change.
The property is owned by Mary Linn Schnitger, Rowan County property records show.
“There are no specific plans for the property,” said Town Manager Reed Linn, but the owner felt “they could offer it as a doctor’s office or dentist office.”
If approved, the request would change the zoning from single-family residential to office institutional. The board tabled the matter asking Linn to provide the board with specific types of businesses that could use the structure. Only one person, John Drye, spoke during the public hearing for the zoning request.
The board also appointed Dennis Brown as mayor pro tem, replacing outgoing board member Craig Sloop, who served as mayor pro tem. Sloop was on the board for a number of years before being unseated by newcomer Dorland Abernathy, who was sworn into office on Monday. Alderman Tony Hilton was appointed to the Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) and Public Works Director Steve Rowland will serve as alternate. Rowland was also appointed to serve on the Technical Coordinating Committee (TCC) and Linn was named alternate.
Mayor James Furr was appointed to serve as a delegate to the Centralina Council of Government (COG).
The town hall will be closed for the following days:
• Dec. 20, furlough
• Dec. 23, 24 and 25, Christmas holiday (police service, fire and garbage services will not be affected)
