Limits on mountainside development and standards for steep slope building are once again in the spotlight in Jackson County.
The Jackson County planning board has spent the past 14 months rewriting steep slopes regulations first put in place seven years ago.
They were more restrictive than anywhere else in the mountains at the time. The watered-down version that has emerged from the rewrite is still far more protective than most mountain counties.
The steep slope hearing scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 13 has been moved to Thursday, Feb. 20.
