City to consider large rezoning, annexation

Developers want the city of Greenville to rezone and annex more than 190 acres on three large plots of land near D.H. Conley High School for single-family homes.  

Three requests to change the properties from rural agricultural zoning to single-family residential are scheduled to go before the city’s Planning & Zoning Commission at 6 p.m. today in the council chambers at City Hall, 200 W. Fifth St.

The first is from Carolina Eastern Homes for more than 85 acres on the south side of Mills Road near the intersection of Hudsons Crossroads Road. The second is a request from Ann C. Davis and James K. Cox for more than 35 acres. The lot is adjacent and just to the east to the 85-acre lot.

The third request is from RDP Management Consulting for 50-acres on the north side of Mills Road and the west side of Hudsons Crossroads Road. The land is across Mills Road from the 85-acre plot. 

The lands currently are located in Pitt County’s zoning area, well south of the city limits and extraterritorial jurisdiction. Because the properties are not in the city, an annexation petition has been submitted and will be considered by the City Council when the zoning requests go before the council, according the the Planning & Zoning Commission agenda packet. 

The land is about 4 miles east of D.H. Conley High School and N.C. 43 and about a mile west of Hope Middle School. It is in the Conley and Chicod School attendance areas.

City staff recommended approval of the requests. Also on tonight’s agenda is: 

A request by Ocean Reef Investments to rezone 4 acres at the southeastern corner of MacGregor Downs Road and B’s Barbeque Road from medical office to general commercial.

The land is located just north of Candlewood Suites and is adjacent to several residential areas. The City Council on April 11 amended the future land use and character map to accommodate the zoning request.

A request from Home Builders and Supply, 2000 Dickinson Ave., to rezone .28 acres at Line Avenue and Wilson Street from residential to heavy commercial. The land is at the rear of the Home Builders property and across from Guy Smith Park and several residences.

A request to approve a preliminary platt for phase 3 of Blackwood Ridge subdivision off of Corey Road.

The city council must consider Planning and Zoning recommendation and give final approval or denial of requests.
