To receive comments and consider adoption of the substantially revised Town of Stanley Zoning Ordinance. The Zoning Ordinance is the Town’s regulatory document for the physical development (establishment of zoning districts and permitted uses, regulations for each district, parking and landscaping requirements, etc.) of our community. Copies of the current and proposed zoning ordinance and a handout listing the main differences between the two documents can be viewed at townofstanley.org.

Additional information regarding potential changes to the Zoning Ordinance are available in their entirety for public viewing during normal business hours at Town Hall. All interested persons are invited to attend the public hearing and express their views. Please call 704-263-4779 or email staff@townofstanley.org if you have any questions. Hearing impaired persons desiring additional information or having questions regarding this subject shall call the North Carolina Relay Number for the Deaf (1-800-735-8262).

The Town Council will also hold a public hearing regarding the proposed ordinance on September 9, 2019 at Stanley Middle School, 317 Hovis Rd at 6:00 pm.
