Dear Blowing Rock Homeowners,
The Town Council will meet on Tuesday January 11th, at 6 pm.
You can read the entire agenda and board package using the following link to the Town’s website at https://www.townofblowingrocknc.gov/residents/meeting-agendas/town-council-agenda
Highlights of the agenda include:
1. Town Council – Swear in Pete Gherini to serve on the Town Council.
2. Hotel Project – Approval of a 14 unit hotel suite project between Pine Street and Laurel Lane on 1/3 acre site just behind 1150 Main Street mixed-use building. The project is being developed by Steve Heatherington who developed the 1150 Main Street project. The request is a Conditional Rezoning District which allows the community to comment at the Public Hearing. The developer is requesting a variance for building height as described in the board package. The Blowing Rock Civic Association neither endorses nor opposes a proposed development. Our evaluation is intended to provide the Council and citizens with pertinent facts concerning the proposed development and alert them to the process that will that will be used by the Town in approving or denying the proposed development. We attended meetings, evaluated this project and the prior townhouse project proposed by the developer and shared those observations with the Planning Board, Town Staff and Town Council. The developer withdrew the first project due to concerns with adequate onsite parking for short term rental units. He redesigned the project and proposed a hotel concept with parking under the building.
3. Tourism Development Authority – Selection of a Town Council members to serve on the TDA Board.
