Nags Head Moratorium - Retail Structures

In addition to The Nags Head Board of Commissioners will be holding a few public hearings at their meeting on Wednesday including:
o Consideration of a moratorium prohibiting the issuance of building permits for retail structures over 10,000 sq. ft. for a period of six months to allow staff time to prepare an ordinance/proposal for Board review.
o Consideration of a zoning ordinance text amendment that would prohibit commercial signs on the rear of buildings. This is in response to Wings adding a sign to back of their building.
o Consideration of a zoning ordinance text amendment that would require commercial signage be included in commercial site plan applications.
The Board will also be discussing and taking possible action on zoning ordinance proposals that would: 1) eliminate the top plate requirement; and 2) require that the top plate be measured from the finished floor. This issue was heavily debated at last month’s meeting. Another item on the Agenda has the Board discussing recent State legislation that mandates certain ABC licensees recycle all their beverage containers.
