MEMO TO:           Mayor Barber and Board of Commissioners

FROM:                  Frank A. Rush, Jr., Town Manager

SUBJECT:           Proposed Rezonings – Bogue Banks Water Corporation – from Business and R-2 to Government (303 Holly Street, 4404 Emerald Drive, 7204-7206 Canal Drive, 8803 Reed Drive) - (Summary & Suggested Motions)

The Board of Commissioners is scheduled to consider the rezoning of five parcels owned by Bogue Banks Water Corporation from Business (B) and Residential-2 (R-2) to the Government (G) zoning district at the November 8 meeting.  The parcels include 4 well sites. 

The attached memo from Josh Edmondson, Town Planner, includes detailed information about the proposed rezonings.  The proposed rezonings are being pursued in order to standardize the zoning of all Town-owned parcels and public utility parcels to the Government (G) zoning district.  The Town has previously completed the rezoning of all Town-owned parcels, Carteret-Craven Electric Cooperative parcels, and all other Bogue Banks Water Corporation parcels.  The five parcels presented on November 8 are the final parcels proposed for rezoning to the Government (G) zoning district at this time.

A public hearing has been advertised and scheduled for the November 8 meeting, and the Board may formally consider the proposed rezonings after the public hearing.  

I recommend approval of the proposed rezonings.
