Planning Board Tree Preservation Workshop

The public will take notice that the Southport Planning Board will meet on Thursday,
November 16, 2017, at 6:00 P.M. at the Fire Substation, located at 111 E. Nash Street
for the purpose of holding their monthly meeting as well as a special workshop to gain
additional public feedback on:
Zoning Text Amendment
(ZA-17-0809-01)
A Unified Development Ordinance Text Amendment that would add an additional Article
dedicated to Tree Preservation. The purpose of the new Article is to safeguard and enhance
property values and to protect public and private investment through the maintenance and
protection of significant trees as well as to prevent the indiscriminate removal of tree and
ensure mitigation when trees are necessarily removed.
Interested developers, builders, contractors, and citizens are encouraged to attend.
