Draft Promontory Overlay District Ordinance (Ordinance 2016-01) posted for public review

After several years of work, drafts, and legal reviews, the Town Council will recommend geographical boundaries for a new zoning overlay district, to be named the Promontory Overlay District, and an amendment (Article 1313.04) to Part 13–Project and Zoning Code of the Codified Ordinances to establish regulations for building, land use, and site design of the area named as the Promontory Overlay District.  Two hearings for the geographical boundaries for a new zoning overlay district and the amendment will be held in late May or early June.

Interested parties may appear and be heard in regard to the proposals and their testimony will be considered by the Town Council in its deliberation on the proposals.  The proposed ordinance, 2016-01, can be read here.  Copies may also be acquired from the Clerk at Town Hall. Written comments may be sent by e-mail to the Town Clerk at acummings@harpersferrywv.us, or mailed to the Corporation of Harpers Ferry, Attention:  Town Clerk, PO Box 217, Harpers Ferry WV  25425.  Written comments must be received by the close of business on Monday, 6 June 2016.
