Commissioner Alexander stated that this request is not compatible with the Town’s Land Use Policy, it is contrary to the Interlocal Agreement with Brentwood, and the property is located in the floodplain.

Attorney Bob Notestine stated that the final decision is not for the Planning Commission to decide. The Planning Commission must make a recommendation to the BOMA to either approve or disapprove this request.
