PUBLIC HEARING NOTICES Text Amendments to the Land Use Ordinance Provisions Relating to Tree Protection, Shading and Canopy Requirements, and Zoning Consistency Statements The Board of Aldermen of the Town of Carrboro will hold two public hearings on Tuesday, January 23, 2018 at 7:30 P.M., or as soon thereafter as they can be heard, in the Town Hall Board Room, to receive public comment and to consider whether to adopt two draft ordinances which would amend the Carrboro Land Use Ordinance in the following areas. Modifications to language in Article XIX, Appendix A and Appendix E, focus on the provisions relating to shading and canopy cover, particularly for infill and redevelopment in the B-1(C), B-1(G) and B-2 zoning districts. Minor revisions to Appendix A relate to application requirements; changes to Appendix E identify updated tree and shrubbery recommendations for planting requirements with new tables and revised formatting. Modifications to Section 15-324 would expand the consistency provisions in subsection (d), to bring the LUO into conformity with recent state legislative changes, to include a declaration as to whether the approval is also deemed as an amendment to the comprehensive plan. Substantial changes in the proposed amendment may be made following the receipt of comments made at the public hearing. The full text of the proposed amendments is available in the Planning Department. For additional information, please contact the Planning Department at 919-918-7325. H-S: January 12 and January 19, 2018
