Developer Plans Multi-Use Residential Development On 200-Acre Rural Section Of Snow Hill Road; Planning Agency Recommends Denial

Saturday, May 4, 2019

Developer Billy McCoy is seeking approval for a multi-use residential development on a 200-acre tract on a rural stretch of Snow Hill Road.

The Regional Planning Agency staff is recommending denial for the request for R-T/Z zoning.

The staff said a Planned Use Development would be more appropriate.

Sue Hawk and Robert Kelley Jr. are co-trustees for the property.

The staff said, "The request is not compatible with the adopted Land Use Plan and development form of the area. The subject property contains protected floodway, 100 and 500 year floodplain and there is no indication on the site plan if this area will be preserved. The request may also set a precedence for future requests of smaller and higher density development along Snow Hill Rd. The adopted Land Use Plan, which went through a public planning process, supports the Residential Planned Unit Development as the more appropriate tool for this area. The PUD provides a means to cluster development, preserve sensitive environments, all while achieving densities that are appropriate for the area."
