The Columbus County planning board is holding a special meeting tonight at 6:30 p.m. to discuss a proposed text amendment regarding multi-family developments to the county code or ordinances.

According to the notice, the proposed text amendment will add “Subdivisions where more than 10 new lots are created at one time, or if 10 or less lots, multi-family dwellings are proposed on those lots,” to regulated uses in Chapter 10, Part 2, Article 8, Section 2.

County planning director Samantha Alsup provided notice of the meeting to The News Reporter shortly before 5 p.m., less than two hours beforehand.

Alsup said notice of the meeting was provided on the county’s website and bulletin board with 48 hours’ notice. However, state law requires local governments to also provide notice to the media at least 48 hours in advance. 

The planning board meets in the Dempsey B. Herring Courthouse Annex on Smith Street in Whiteville.
