PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE
Notice is hereby given that the Roanoke Rapids Board of Adjustment will hold a quasi-judicial* public hearing on Thursday, February 21, 2019 at 5:30 p.m. at the Lloyd Andrews City Meeting Hall located at 700 Jackson Street, Roanoke Rapids, NC to hear the following item:
An Application for an Appeal of a Decision by the Land Use Administrator* filed in response to the issuance of site development plan zoning approval letter, dated January 25, 2019 for the construction of a Dollar General commercial retail store at 80 West 8th Street (previously referred to as 735 Roanoke Ave. – building now demolished).
Appeal is requested to the requirements of the Roanoke Rapids Land Use Ordinance (zoning code):
- Section 151-6 Relationship to the Land Use Plan;
- Section 151-136 Commercial Districts Established;
- Section 151-147 Board of Adjustment Jurisdiction Over Uses Otherwise Permissible with a Zoning Permit; and
- Section 151-148 Permissible Uses and Specific Exclusions.
* A quasi-judicial hearing must be based on evidence which would be admissible in a court of law. Once the Administrator makes the showing that the standards have been met, the burden shifts to those who oppose permit issuance to present countervailing substantial, competent, and material evidence that the standards would not be met.
Related information is available for public inspection in the Planning and Development office at the J. Reuben Daniel City Hall, 1040 Roanoke Avenue. Any persons, firms, organizations or corporations interested in this matter are urged to attend the meeting.
The City of Roanoke Rapids will provide reasonable accommodations and services for any qualified disabled person interested in attending the meeting. To request the above you may call the Planning and Development Office at (252) 533-2844 no later than three (3) days prior to the date of the meeting.
