BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS PUBLIC HEARING

Monday, May 20, 2019

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING The City of Mount Airy currently exercises zoning & subdivision powers in a one-mile area adjacent to the municipal limits, known as the extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ). The ETJ encompasses 9,023 acres of land and is primarily zoned R-20 Residential. Land usage in the ETJ varies and includes agricultural lands, low-density residential dwellings, residential (manufactured & site-built) subdivisions, strip commercial development, light industrial uses and 2 quarries. The Mount Airy Board of Commissioners on 04/07/19 voted (4-1) to begin the process of eliminating the ETJ and returning zoning & subdivision powers to Surry County. The first step in that process is to conduct a public hearing to receive public comment on the potential elimination. The public hearing will be held at a special meeting on Monday, May 20, 2019 at 7 PM in the Auditorium at Mount Airy High School, 1011 N. South Street, Mt Airy, NC. All interested persons are invited to attend.
