Planning board sends steep slope proposal to Macon commissionersWritten by Giles Morris
The Macon County Planning Board voted unanimously March 18 to forward the recommendations of its steep slope committee to the county commissioners.
“What I would like to ask is that the planning board take this document before the commissioners and say, ‘This is the basic idea, let’s develop an ordinance,’” said slope committee chair Al Slagle.
Slagle and the other members of the steep slope committee spent the better part of a year hammering out the underlying principles of the proposed regulations.
The county commissioners will have a chance to review the committee’s findings at their meeting on April 12 and decide whether to send it back to the planning board with directions to draft an ordinance.
