  • Resolution recognizing and honoring Lieutenant John Caudle on his upcoming retirement
  • Resolution recognizing and honoring Joanne Sigmon on her upcoming retirement
  • Proclamation proclaiming the City of Lincolnton and Lincoln County - “Home of Catawba Valley Pottery”

Approved a contract between the City and East Coast Pyrotechnics for the 2020 Fireworks Display. The Fourth of July Display will cost the City $11,500 and will last from 15-18 minutes. This is the same cost and the same duration as last year.

Approved the Application from the Lincolnton County Coalition Against Domestic Violence requesting a zoning text amendment to Section 153.031 of the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) regards to the definition of Domestic Violence Shelters and to Section 153.117 (GMC District) to add Domestic Violence Shelter as a permitted use.

Approved the application from Travis Dellinger of /Visual Inception requesting a zoning text amendment to Section 153.113 (Central Business District) of the Unified Development Ordinance, to add the use “Sign Printing and Manufacturing” as a permitted use.

The current UDO allows sign shops as a permitted use in the General Business (GB) and the General Manufacturing and Commercial (GMC) districts. Sign manufacturing is not permitted in the Central Business district.

Visual Inception is requesting amendment of the UDO to add sign painting and manufacturing in the C-B district as a permitted use.

Planning Board and Staff recommend approval of the amendment with the following stipulations:

  • Sign shops in the C-B district will not be permitted in the downtown fire district, and
  • Sign shops in the C-B district will not be permitted to have any outdoor storage or activities.

Approved the application from Jamie Policz requesting the conditional use rezoning of approximately 0.8 acres of land from General Manufacturing and Commercial (GMC) District to Conditional Use Residential Multi-Family (CU-RMF) District for a proposed church expansion. The subject property is located at 1008 North Aspen Street.

The property is currently developed with a 2,080 square foot church building. Land uses in the area include multifamily residential, City Park, the American Legion and the National Guard Armory.

The applicant requests conditional use rezoning in order to allow for the expansion of the existing church to the rear of the property by approximately 1,500 square feet. The rezoning to RMF would allow for a reduced rear setback of 25 feet instead of 50 feet as required in the GMC District. The current church building would remain the same. Access would be provided by one driveway to North Aspen Street.

The UDO requires that a conditional use permit application contain specific terms and meet specific requirements. The site plan meets the requirements of this section with the following exceptions: 

Approved the proposed revision to the City’s Code of Ordinances – TITLE VII – Traffic Code – Chapter 74; Schedule 1: Adding Stop signs at the intersections of Sumner and E. Dixon Streets where they cross the Marcia Cloninger Rail Trail.
