Nags Head Septic & 5 Bedroom Restrictions

At this week’s Board of Commissioners meeting three public hearings will be held:

Consideration of a moratorium to prohibit the installation and use of pump and haul septic systems for any type of development in the Town of Nags Head.
Consideration of a site plan/conditional use application for Mighty Wind United Methodist Church to construct a 13,080 square foot complex at 4222 S. Croatan Hwy.
Consideration of text amendment to add “Exercise, Dance and Martial Arts Studio” as a permitted use in the C-3 Commercial District.

Also at the meeting, Commissioner Gray will once again be discussing a proposal regarding architectural requirements for houses on the west side of US 158. He has modified wording from a proposal that the Board voted down at their July 11th meeting. The new proposal would exempt detached single-family dwellings and two-family dwellings with five bedrooms on the west side of US 158 from the northern corporate town limits to the northern zoning district boundary of the Village at Nags Head from the residential design standards. If the Board agrees with the proposal, then the process would begin to amend the zoning ordinance by referring the item to the Planning Board for recommendations followed by a public hearing by the Board of Commissioners.
