County Planning Board Allows West Pine Elementary Expansion
The Moore County Planning Board has approved an amendment to the conditional use permit authorizing the Board of Education to proceed with expansion of the West Pine Elementary School campus.
The permit approved at a Thursday night meeting allows the school system to place three mobile classrooms on campus to accommodate students being reassigned from Academy Heights School, which is being closed. Once the first phase of the school expansion is complete, the mobile classrooms will be removed. The original CUP was approved in 2009.
In other action Thursday the planning panel approved a conditional use permit requested by Howard Warren to place a manufactured home as an accessory dwelling unit on a 3.4-acre tract on Warren Road east of the Putnam-Glendon Road intersection.
A CUP request for a home occupation of an industrial or commercial nature was tabled until a July meeting to give the planning staff and the applicants an opportunity to address issues raised by board members. The applicants, Pedro Arredondo and Marie Angelica Nieves, want to use a three-acre tract on Kyle Road near the intersections with Walter Road and Niagara-Carthage Road for an automobile service business. Issues pertain to parking and buffering.
In an unusual request, the board recommended that property de-annexed by the town of Cameron be zoned Rural Agricultural. The property consists of 44.27 acres on Dalrymple Road. The petitioner is Royce Edmonds. The board’s recommendation now goes to the board of commissioners for a final decision.
The board adjourned in its planning capacity in order to convene as the watershed review board to consider a request by K2 Solutions for a special non-residential intensity allocation. The board approved the request to increase the maximum built-upon area from 24% to 55% to enable the business to construct on a 1.46-acre parcel on U.S. 1 near Youngs Road.
After reconvening as the planning board, members discussed the scheduling of public input workshops on the Unified Development Ordinance.
More details will appear in the print version of The Pilot.
