Town Board to consider changes in quasi-judicial hearings

At the upcoming July 13 meeting, the Cornelius Town Board will consider a series of changes in the town’s quasi-judicial hearing process, which will help the town to conform with changes adopted during the past two years by the State Legislature.

Chief among the changes will be keeping the 4/5ths super majority for variances, but amending all other quasi-judicial hearings to require just a simple majority for passage. “These changes will make the town consistent with House Bill 276 that was ratified by the State legislature on June 10, 2013, which modernized these statutes” said Planning Director Wayne Herron.

The town is also expected to proclaim Saturday July 18 as Big Day at the Lake Day in Cornelius, in honor of the 11th annual event which puts at-risk youngsters from Big Brothers Big Sisters out on Lake Norman and Mountain Island Lake for a day of fun.

Also at the meeting: Brian Simmons will be reappointed chair of the Planning Board. Under consideration as well is a voluntary petition by Bluestream Partners to annex approximately 62.983 acres of property located on Bailey Road.

The meeting begins at 7pm in Town Hall on Catawba Avenue.
