NW GUILFORD - The Oak Ridge Town Council will hold a special called meeting on Thursday, May 8, at 7 p.m. at the town hall, 8315 Linville Road. At that time public hearings will be held for two rezoning applications submitted by Kevin and DeLana Harvick.
The Harvicks have requested to rezone 50.8 acres off Haw River Road from AG to RS-40 (Residential, minimum lot sizes of 40,000 sq. ft.), and an adjoining 82.75 acres from AG to PD-R (Planned Development-Residential).
The Oak Ridge Planning and Zoning Board held public hearings for the Harvicks' rezoning requests on April 24 and voted 7-0 to recommend approving the AG to RS-40 rezoning request; the board voted 5-2 to recommend denying the AG to PD-R rezoning request.
Over 60 residents attended the planning board's meeting on April 24, most of whom live in the adjoining Linville Oaks neighborhood. Though no one spoke in opposition to the AG to RS-40 rezoning, as many of those residents who could do so within the allotted time for public comments spoke in opposition to the AG to PD-R rezoning. The Linville Oaks residents were represented by Mike Fox, a business and real estate attorney with Tuggle Duggins.
The Stokesdale Town Council will hold its monthly meeting on May 8, at 7 p.m. A public hearing will be held for a rezoning request. Other agenda items can be viewed at www.stokesdale.org.
