Special-use permit process could deter industry, skeptics say

 

From the Wilmington StarNews: The amendment was part of the county's zoning ordinance improvement effort. The biggest change is that to use land for new heavy-industrial purposes, companies would first have to file for a special-use permit, which would then have to go through two public hearings – one before the planning board and another before the commissioners.
 
The idea is to allow the county – and the public – to see potential impacts and give more control over heavy industries looking to locate to the county.
