[ARCHIVED] Public Hearing for Lincoln County Moratorium Ordinance

The Lincoln County Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing on Monday, February 27, 2017, at 6:30 P.M. in the Commissioners’ Room, 3rd Floor, James Warren Citizens Center, 115 W. Main Street, Lincolnton, North Carolina.

The purpose of the hearing is to receive public response and to discuss a possible temporary six-month moratorium ordinance on certain County development approvals pursuant to N.C.G.S. §153A-340, to allow the County to review its current sewer, water and general infrastructure capacity.

Pursuant to statute, the moratorium must be created by an ordinance.  The ordinance must include, at the time of its adoption, the following:

(1) A clear statement of the problems or conditions necessitating the moratorium and what courses of action, alternative to a moratorium, were considered by the County and why those alternative courses of action were not deemed adequate.

(2) A clear statement of the development approvals subject to the moratorium and how a moratorium on those approvals will address the problems or conditions leading to imposition of the moratorium.

(3) An express date for termination of the moratorium and a statement setting forth why that duration is reasonably necessary to address the problems or conditions leading to imposition of the moratorium.

(4) A clear statement of the actions, and the schedule for those actions, proposed to be taken by the County during the duration of the moratorium to address the problems or conditions leading to imposition of the moratorium.

Public input is requested and appreciated.


This the fifteenth day of February, 2017.


By Order of the Board of Commissioners
Lincoln County, North Carolina
Amy S. Atkins
Clerk to the Board
