The massive down zoning (to 1 unit/2 acres) being considered by Knightdale for nearly 44% of the land it has planning jurisdiction over is well on its way to approval. After holding the public hearing open for 3 weeks, Council sent the item to the Land Use Review Board (LURB). The LURB met on 11/13 and with hardly more than a blink unanimously approved the proposed zoning map amendments that would effectuate the massive down zoning.
Even after many meetings with elected official, staff and stakeholders, speaking at all three public hearings and communicating with the LURB, the opinion on this item among the elected officials is seemingly not to be swayed. The item is scheduled to come back to the Council at their 11/19/18 meeting at 7pm where it is expected to pass.
