Thursday june 29, to be followed by action on Thomasville zoning ordinances. Because of a loophole in the 1971 municipal corporations Law passed by the general Assembly the City attorney has recommended that the City Council either re adopt present zoning ordinances or revise its ordinances As prescribed by Law. Under the new legislation Thomasville is entitled to extend its extraterritorial zoning boundaries to two Miles beyond the City limits. The City is now zoning one mile beyond the corporate limits for former maximum. I instead of taking in the full two Miles however City planner Bob Keber and the planning and zoning commission have recommended that zoning boundaries be changed to follow roads and geographical formations. Davidson county commissioners have already approved the new boundaries. In addition the City Council will decide whether to abolish the residential 5 zoning classification. If this recon i mentation of the planning Board is passed the Only r-5s it remaining would be special areas where Mobile Home Parks exist. Originally the r-5 zone was established for areas outside the City without county water. That classification is now obsolete since All Homes within Thomasville a zoning jurisdiction Are connected to water Mains. The Mobile Home exemption will remain however because no other zoning classification is on the books that permits Mobile Homes. Assuming the recommended change is made r-5 areas will become r-4.
