COVID-19: Meeting Updates
The Zoning Committee Meeting originally scheduled for March 31, 2020 has been cancelled.
COVID-19: Community Meeting Updates
The Governor of North Carolina has issued an Executive Order prohibiting gatherings of more than 100 people and Mecklenburg County recommends that no more than 50 should gather. The CDC along with the White House suggest avoiding social gatherings of more than 10 people and practicing social distancing. While the guidelines have varied in regard to the number of people at gatherings, we urge you to consider the public health and safety when determining how and when to hold a community meeting. For now, the next Zoning Meeting is April 20, 2020, but the City must make determinations with respect to scheduling city-wide public meetings based on guidance from federal, state, and local authorities which is rapidly evolving. In order to accommodate the uncertainty arising from COVID-19, the City will be flexible in adjusting our timeline for when the Community Meeting Report is submitted to staff by accepting the reports within 10 days prior to the scheduled public hearing. In addition, while we continue to support the standard format for community meetings where the public is invited to a location in close proximity to the subject property, staff is also willing to consider additional ways to solicit public input. Please note alternative methods would not replace the standard community meeting format but would be used in conjunction to ensure maximum opportunity for the public to provide input. We would request additional methods to solicit input be coordinated through the rezoning staff planner assigned to your petition, or through the Rezoning Program Manager so we can review, and if acceptable, can inform the public accordingly.
If you have any questions, or need anything additional in the meantime, please contact staff using the numbers and emails provided at the bottom of this page. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding on this matter.
