Lincoln County Commissioners turned down one rezoning request, tabled another, and approved the rest at their Monday night (May 20th) meeting.
A request to rezone property at the intersection of Lake Shore Road South and NC 16-Business was turned down. The Planning Board had also recommended disapproval by an 8-0 vote. The property is--and will remain--zoned for a single family residence. The request had been to rezone it for a business.
Tabled at the request of Commissioner Bud Cesena was a request to rezone 21.8 acres at the end of Overhill Lane off Reepsville Road from R-SF (Residential Single-Family) to R-T (Transitional Residential). Jerry Geymont had asked for the rezoning to allow for manufactured homes to be situated on the property. The Planning Board had voted for approval 6-2, but Cesena said new information had become available, so the Commissioners approved putting off a decision until their mid-June meeting.
Approved were a request for a conditional use permit to build a detached garage at a home on Lake Norman, a permit to place a double-wide home on a lot on Wrenn Drive in Catawba Springs Township, and a permit for a self-storage facility on Optimist Club Road near the railroad track. That permit required changing the Land Use Plan for the property, and Cesena voted against that change, but it was approved 4-1. The Planning Board had voted to recommend approval of the request 6-2.
Commissioners also approved a rezoning of property on NC 16-Business south of the NC 73 intersection to allow Amanda Assell to further develop the use of property she purchased at the intersection of NC 16-Business and South Little Egypt Road.
