Davison Co. to hold hearing on proposed zoning ordinance changes

The Davison County Commission will hold its first hearing on a detailed zoning ordinance overhaul on Tuesday.

The five-person board will hold its first hearing after several county Planning Commission meetings on the matter, but the controversial wind energy system proposed for inclusion in the update will not be on the table at the 9 a.m. Tuesday meeting at the Davison County North Offices.

With the Planning Commission still researching a series of proposed changes to the county's zoning code to add wind tower setbacks and other stricter regulations to the books, the county will consider a series of changes.

Included among those changes are a proposal to require solar energy systems of more than 100 square feet to have a conditional use permit and a line to require a building permit on construction sites before concrete is poured.
