Moore County Board of Adjustment: 2 Quasi Judicial Hearings Scheduled at 4:00pm, 2/27/19

LEGAL NOTICE

Notice is hereby given that two Quasi-Judicial Hearings will be held, before the Moore County Board of Adjustment, at 4:00 pm on Wednesday, February 27, 2019, in the Board of Commissioners’ Meeting Room, located on the second floor of the Historic Courthouse, 1 Courthouse Square, Carthage, NC, regarding the following cases:

1.         The Town of Carthage filed an appeal to the Laurel Ridge Subdivision approval by the Subdivision Review Board. The appeal application provides as follows:

The approval of the preliminary plat for Laurel Ridge subdivision failed to protect a planned CTP alignment of NC 73 and McCaskill Road. The CTP document states that it is the responsibility of the local government and the state to protect the proposed projects.  It is also clear that the County has the authority to require the delineation of the planned corridor through its subdivision regulations. At the very least, Phase II of this proposed subdivision should have not been approved to provide time to further evaluate the best corridor for this project alignment. The Moore County Board of Commissioners adopted the CTP on 11/6/18. Twelve other jurisdictions in Moore County had already approved the plan by the date the plat was approved. I believe that the SRB erred in approving the preliminary plat without allowing for proposed thoroughfare connector as part of this subdivision. Section 18.7 A of the Moore County UDO states: Conformity to existing maps or plans. In fact, not only does the UDO say it will conform with all plans or maps, but the CTP states that it will conform to existing plans and maps. (Please see: Section 2.2 Implementation of the MC CTP.) At the very least, approval of Phase 2 should have been delayed until further study of the proposed alignment was completed. Please consider the map from the Moore County CTP numbered: TIP/SPOT/CTP ID: MOOR0026-H CTP Proposal ID: 26.

The subject property is identified as Parcel ID: 00026008 and 00026009 per the Moore County Tax Records. The properties are located on the corner of McCaskill Road and US Hwy 15-501; and

2.         Donna Lea Ford filed an appeal to the Laurel Ridge Subdivision approval by the Subdivision Review Board. The appeal application provides as follows:

USO Section 18.6 B conflicts with USO Section 1.4 in that the ministerial approval of the proposed major subdivision map will actually impose regulations upon the appellant’s bona fide farm. It will do this upon the construction of the houses on the lots shown on the major subdivision map, which will prevent the applicant of certain agricultural chemicals on the appellant’s property due to its proximity to occupied dwellings. USO Section 18.6 B also conflicts with the 2013 Land Use Plan, which states that in rural agricultural areas “Major subdivisions of land are strongly discouraged” (p. 82 of the 2013 LUSP), while USO Section 18.6 B appears to do anything but strongly discourage major subdivisions.

Appellant is prepared to prove that certain agricultural chemicals cannot be used within several hundred feet of dwellings and that the 2013 Land Use Plan states that in Rural Agricultural areas “Major subdivisions of land are strongly discouraged.”

The amended appeal provides as follows:

The subdivision review application (“SRA”) misleadingly indicates that members of my family (Wm. & Richard Lea) and DSL Properties, LLC (“DSL”) consent to the SRA, when, in fact, (1) no members of my family consented to it AND (2) DSL was administratively dissolved, making it IMPOSSIBLE for this limited liability company to consent to anything. SRA also gives the wrong PIN for my family’s land – 85640085601 (a non-existent PIN) instead of 856400856507 (correct PIN).

UDO Section 18.6 B conflicts with the UDO Section 1.4 in that the ministerial approval of the proposed major subdivision map will actually impose regulations upon the applicants’ bona fide farm. It will do this upon the construction of the houses on the lots shown on the major subdivision map, which will prevent the applicant from applying certain agricultural chemicals on the appellant’s property due to its proximity to occupied dwellings. UDO Section 18.6 B also conflicts with the 2013 Land Use Plan which states that in rural agricultural areas “major subdivisions of land are strongly discouraged” (page 82 of the 2013 LUSP), while UDO Section 18.6 B appears to do anything but “strongly discourage” major subdivisions.

Applicant is prepared to prove (1) that certain agricultural chemicals cannot be used within several hundred feet of dwellings, (2) that the 2013 Land Use Plan states that in rural agricultural areas “major subdivisions of land are strongly discouraged”, (3) that DSL Properties, LLC was administratively dissolved on 28 February 2018, (4) the correct PIN for  the Lea family land adjoining the subdivision & its relevance, (5) that none of my siblings gave consent to the SRA, and (6) the SRA’s inaccuracies and misleading nature make it incomplete and unworthy of consideration.   

The subject property is identified as Parcel ID: 00026008 and 00026009 per the Moore County Tax Records. The properties are located on the corner of McCaskill Road and US Hwy 15-501.

Information pertaining to the proposed actions is available for inspection in the Moore County Planning & Transportation office at 1048 Carriage Oaks Drive in Carthage, NC 28327 during normal business hours (8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday).

Please give reasonable notice to the Moore County Planning Department at (910) 947-5010 if accommodations for individuals with disabilities or impairments are required Deaf and hearing impairing individuals may use a TDD by calling (800)735-2962.
