Around 25 people were in attendance for the Pittsboro Board of Commissioners meeting Tuesday. The meeting started at 7:04 p.m., beginning with a moment of silence as well as the pledge of allegiance.
The meeting conducted four public hearings. The first hearing concerned a Community Development Block Grant for the EG-GILERO Building Renovation project. The application was later approved by commissioners, pending a slight change in language to the legally binding commitment. Two of the hearings were dedicated to the rezoning of properties.
The Pittsboro Board of Commissioners convened
for a meeting Monday night. Here’s what we learned. The board still hasn’t approved Chatham Park’s tree protection plan
Representatives from Chatham Park presented a
revised version of its tree protection plan, but the board ultimately decided
against voting to approve it or not. While several members said they
appreciated some of the changes to the plan that were made, a consensus was not
met and additional questions were raised. Moving forward, the board will hold a special
work session on Chatham Park’s tree protection plan on May 13 at 6 p.m. The
decision to hold the special work session was proposed by Mayor Cindy Perry
after Chatham Park representative Chuck Smith grew frustrated over the pace at
which the board has considered the tree protection plan.
