Also on the agenda: A new tax on businesses, discussion of drive-throughs
What should fences in Davidson look like? The Davidson Town Board on Tuesday will hold a public hearing and later vote on proposed amendments to town rules that would “strongly discourage” front-yard fences, and clarify standards for homeowners who choose to erect them.
Also at Tuesday’s meeting, the board will resume a public hearing begun last month on proposed zoning changes that could make it easier to develop a corporate/industrial park at the former Davidson East site, off N.C. 73 east of town. (See “Public hearing resumes Tues. on N.C. 73 planning rules”.) And it will discuss the town’s longstanding rules prohibiting drive-throughs.
The meeting also will include several items related to MI-Connection, the cable and internet system Davidson owns along with the Town of Mooresville. And the board will adopt a new $40 annual “business license” fee. Read the full story
