Town of Cornelius to Consider New Buffering Requirements

A public hearing will be held on December 5th during the regularly scheduled meeting of the Cornelius Board of Commissioners.  Cornelius Planning Director, Wayne Herron, will offer a proposal endorsed by the Town’s Land Development Code Advisory Board requiring more stringent buffering standards for new residential developments that abut existing residential uses.

The ordinance change would require a 50 foot buffer when a berm and vegetation is used as a screen and a 30 foot buffer when a wall is utilized.  Town staff is currently in the process of drafting language to be incorporated in the proposal that would provide additional flexibility.  We will provide updates in future blog posts as more information becomes available.
