Nash County okays rezoning request

A rezoning request that was denied last month by Nash County Commissioners was approved on Monday, after the owner brought a revised request back to the board.

The request, by William Brian Colbert and Kimberly Colbert, was to rezone 89.5 acres of land on the west side of S NC Highway 58 on Cabin Path Lane from R-40 Single Family Residential to A-1 Agricultural (Conditional Use).

The properties include dilapidated hog houses, a hog waste lagoon that is no longer in use, two wells, two existing residential septic/wastewater systems, a dilapidated home and some small storage buildings.

Last month, the Colberts brought a similar request to commissioners asking that the board rezone the property to A-1 Agricultural but commissioners voted 4-3 to deny the request due to concerns about the rezoning being too broad.

The revised request was for a conditional use rezoning that would permit all of the uses allowed by the Nash County UDO in the A-1 zoning district except for an outdoor shooting range.

Last month, during a public hearing, neighbors expressed concern about shooting that went on the property. Colbert said the shooting was part of a prior agreement with the former owner but added that it wasn't a shooting range.

Neighbors also expressed concern about traffic the rezoning request could bring, especially if Colbert put mobile homes on the property. Colbert had said last month he had planned to put singlewide homes on the property.

On Monday, during a public hearing, three neighbors continued to express concern about the rezoning but said as long as the Colberts did things the right way and were responsible landowners, they would live with the rezoning.

One nearby resident, Matthew Bone, said he was concerned about mobile homes being put on the property because it could potentially cause an increase in crime.

With little discussion following the hearing, commissioners unanimously approved the revised request.
