Two planning and zoning board members, whose tenure expired on December 12, 2012, were reappointed.

Chris Turner and Marian Kinley were unanimously reappointed onto the plan- ning and zoning board. Mayor Kevin Barbee asked if anyone else had applied to be a part of the board, wanting to make sure that the town weighed every candidate.

As part of the planning and zoning portion of the meeting, a rezoning request was heard from James Castonguay and Laurie Sharp Castonguay on property they own in Stanfield.

James and Laurie made a presentation to the board on January 28, of 40 acres that they purchased in the town, which they wanted to rezone two parcels to general business and residential agriculture.

Addressing a concern brought by the board on what type of business could occupy the space, town administrator Robert Harvey said, “This can be nothing but a dog grooming shop. If he sold it to his daughter, sold it to Jimmy, it could only be that.”

Moving forward, a public hearing is scheduled for prior to the board of commissioners March 7 meeting, after which the town can make a motion to rezone the property. […]
