It Is Time For The Greensboro City Council To Take The TREBIC Blinders Off And Require Neighborhood Meetings

The above video is from the Greensboro Zoning Commission on 3-8-2010 and below is the zoning case that was in front of the commission

Z-10-03-001 - 2330 Fleming Road (Northeast corner of the intersection of Fleming Road and Old Acre Court) – An ordinance rezoning from RS-12 (Residential-Single Family) to CD-LB (Conditional District-Limited Business) *[CD-C-L (Conditional District-Commercial-Low)] with the following conditions:

1. Uses: All uses permitted in the Limited Business zoning district except gasoline service station and any use with a drive-thru.
2. Medical, dental and related offices will be limited to a maximum of 30,000 square feet.
3. All other offices will be limited to a maximum of 50,000 square feet.
– for property located at 2330 Fleming Road, generally described as the northeast corner of the intersection Fleming Road and Old Acre Court (0.82 Acres).
– for Keramatollah Lashani (Sheet(s) 224)

Triadwatch has been talking in the past about how neighborhoods all over Greensboro have been getting the short end of the stick in plenty of instances in regards to the zoning process. As you can see from the video  above from 3-8-2010 we had a applicant who was changing a property from residential to commercial and didn't even bother talking with the neighborhood about this rezoning. It is time for the Greensboro City Council to take their Triad Real Estate and Building Industry Coalition Blinders Off and to make a requirement in the zoning process for the applicant to have a REQUIRED MEETING 21 days before the zoning commission meeting. The City of Greensboro is in the process of maybe approving this new Land Development Ordinance and the part of the zoning process has a watered version called meet and confer. It should be mandatory and required as a part of the process not just a meet and confer. 

There has been plenty of talk in the past about this issue but wanted to bring you a video to show you what went on at the zoning commission this past week and to reiterate to plenty of people in the City of Greensboro to write  or call or e-mail your city council members to let them know that a requirement to meet with the neighborhood needs to be a part of the process.
