  1. Removing Single-Family and Duplexes from Design Standard Regulations

Speaker:  Kevin Rothrock, Planning Director

During the 2015 session, the NC General Assembly adopted Senate Bill 25 which placed limits on how local governments can regulate building design elements including color and materials for single-family, townhouse and duplex structures. To be consistent with the recently approved Session Law 2015-86 and the NC General Statute, staff recommends that Article 21 of the Blowing Rock Land Use Ordinance be amended to remove single-family, duplex and townhome structures from commercial design standard regulation. Following the public hearing, Council may take action.
