    Future Land Use Map

    Additional Information The two parcels adjacent to the subject property were approved unanimously for a rezoning from RA-30 to Commercial, by the Planning Board on July 6, 2010 and County Commissioners on August 2, 2010. Also, as required for all zoning changes within a five mile radius of Fort Bragg, RLUAC (Regional Land Use Advisory Commission) was contacted and had no objections to the proposed rezoning to commercial.

    Evaluation Yes No The IMPACT to the adjacent property owners and the surrounding community is

    reasonable, and the benefits of the rezoning outweigh any potential inconvenience or harm to the community. REASONING: Development along Hwy 87 is becoming predominately a mix of residential and

    non-residential uses. The requested zoning district is similar in nature to much of the existing

    development in the area and will not have a negative impact on the adjacent property owners or

    the surrounding community.

    Yes No The requested zoning district is COMPATIBLE with the existing Land Use Classification. REASONING: The existing land use classification, Compact Mixed Use is meant to encourage a

    combination of differing residential types such as: small lot single family and multi-family

    developments, commercial, and institutional uses. The requested zoning change is compatible

    with this classification.

    Yes No The proposal does ENHANCE or maintain the public health, safety and general welfare. REASONING: The existing zoning district in which the subject property is located is not

    compatiable with the general vicinity of the site. The proposed commercial zoning district is more

    appropriate for the site due to several factors, including the continued non-residential

    development in the area and surrounding land uses. Thus will enhance the public health and

    general welfare.

    Yes No The request is for a SMALL SCALE REZONING and should be evaluated for reasonableness REASONING: The site is immediately adjacent to Commercial zoning and therefore, it is not necessary to evaluate this site for a small scale rezoning request.

    Suggested Statement-of-Consistency (Staff concludes that…) The requested rezoning to COMMERCIAL is compatible with Harnett County regulatory documents and would not have an unreasonable impact on the surrounding community and will enhance the public health, safety, and general welfare for the reasons stated in the evaluation. It is recommended that this rezoning request be APPROVED.
