Area Plan Commission Hosts Public Meeting on Proposed Overlay Districts

The Area Plan Commission is inviting the public and media to attend a public meeting on May 15th at 6pm at the Western Boone High School Auditorium to discuss potential upcoming additions of Overlay Districts which may impact the future development of specific property.

An Overlay District is a geographic zoning district layered on top of another existing zoning district that implements additional development regulations. Proposed overlay districts are adjacent to state roads and interstate highways.

The meeting will include a presentation explaining the proposed Overlay Districts, followed by a period for public comment. The Area Plan Commission encourages all interested parties to attend the meeting and share their thoughts and concerns.

“We encourage all interested parties to attend and share their feedback,” said Boone County Commissioner President, Donnie Lawson.
