Rezoning Request by Tony S. Turner in Alleghany Township Containing 10.95 Acres from CU-RC to RA-2

Recommendation:
Applicant is seeking to have his property containing 10.95 acres more or less to be rezoned from CU-RC district to that of RA-2 district. The property is located on the south side of NC Highway 49 approximately 1.1 miles west of the NC Highway 8 intersection. The property is wooded and never has been developed. The Applicant is also owner of the property and at one time was moving towards establishing a landscaping and greenhouse business on a portion of the land. All of those plans have now changed and the Applicant/Owner is now wanting to establish his residence on said property and retire. The request is certainly reasonable and consistent with the comprehensive plan for the area. The property is contiguous to the much larger and long-established RA-2 district associated with the Uwharrie National Forest. Policies 10.1 and 10.3 of the Land Development Plan focused on Agricultural and rural area preservation lend support to the rezoning request. Staff recommends the application be granted as requested.
