COMMISSIONERS MAKE CODE CHANGES ON RECOMMENDATIONS FROM REGULATORY REVIEW COMMITTEE

CHANGES WILL MAKE LOCAL FARMING A BIT EASIER
 
Henderson County farmers will find it a bit easier to do business this year, thanks to some code changes passed on Monday by the county board of commissioners.

 

Commissioners, in a 5 to 0 vote, adopted some code changes that had been recommended by the county's Regulation Review Advisory Committee.

The committee had suggested, and commissioners agreed, that all agricultural signs be exempted from code standards...and a maximum size of 32 feet on each side of the sign will now be allowed.

Commissioners also exempted housing for farm labor that is not occupied year around from the county's minimum housing code. The advisory committee found, and commissioners agreed, the county's previous standards made it too difficult for farmers who rely on seasonal labor.

Commissioners, also on a recommendation from the advisory committee, reduced road setbacks for businesses in commercial zoning districts. This change is not county-wide and only applies to a limited number of commercial districts in the county.
