Brunswick County planning Board
members will consider a possible
change in policy at their Jan. SS
meeting that would require all
developers to present in person
preliminary plat proposals to the
board tor approval.
According to Assistant County
Manager John Harvey, a pattern has
emerged among board members.
They tend, he said, "to follow a
subliminal policy of deferring action
on preliminary plat proposals
until representatives of the applicants
are present at the meeting.
"Generally, such deferrals have
been in those cases where nijestinns
have been posed, hut occasionally
such a deferral has been simply for
the reason no one was Dresent as
spokesman," Harvey noted on the
agenda of the board's Dec. 20
meeting. "It has been suggested the
beard discuss this matter and if, indeed,
it is intent, then declare the
let ins of such policy ana iei persons
in the development business know of
such policy' "
County Commission Chairman
Chris Chappell, cx-officio member on
the planning board, recommended an
examination of ihe policy and re
quested it be on the agenda of '.he
Dec. 22 meeting. However, a motion
was unanimously passed to delay
discussion of the change in policy until
ihc regular January meeting.
The board held its December
meeting at the Calabash town hall,
followed by a Christmas dinner at a
local restaurant Only one plat proposal
needed action at the meeting.
