The first is on county manager Robert B. Outten’s proposed operating budget.

Next are three hearings on planning matters. Attorney Casey Varnell, attorney for Patricia Pledger, submitted a zoning text amendment application requesting that the language be amended to allow for single room occupancy dwellings (SRO) as a special use in the Martins Point Commercial District. The Planning Board recommended denial of the proposed amendment on May 7, 2024.

Next is a zoning test amendment to the Manns Harbor MH-A zoning district. Kenneth and Angela Daniels have submitted a zoning text amendment application asking to allow for the permitted uses under the Commercial and Light Industry heading to have multiple principal-use buildings on one parcel subject to the requirements of 22-31 Group Developments. The applicants are also seeking to have appliance and furniture warehouses added to the uses defined under the Commercial and Light Industry heading.

A quasi-judicial hearing will be held on an amendment to the special use permit issued to William and Shelly Daughtry.

At the May meeting of the commissioners, Debbie Swick, during public comment, asked the county to draft and adopt language that would make releasing balloons in unincorporated Dare County illegal. Surrounding municipalities in Dare County have adopted similar language. A proposal is before the commissioners to ban releasing balloons.

A recommended capital improvement plan for the county, Dare County Schools and the Water Fund will be presented to the commissioners. The plan is No. 15 on the agenda.

The consent agenda has 10 items. Appointments to various boards number nine.
