Fayette board faces a busy Thursday afternoon agenda

The Fayette County Board of Commissioners has moved its regular meeting this week to 4 p.m. from its usual 7 p.m. time Thursday.

Among new business, the board is expected to consider a property owner’s request to be annexed into Fayetteville, although there doesn’t appear to be a compelling reason to object to the move.

The site at 140 Walker Parkway is 1.01 acres and the plan is to develop a restaurant, according to a county staff report. The city intends to rezone the property from C-H to C-3, both of which are Highway-Commercial zoning classifications. Read More»

One of the first steps in producing a new document was a public input meeting held Feb. 17 at the Tyrone Library.

Mayor Eric Dial said Tyrone adopted the most recent 10-year Comprehensive Plan eight years ago. That adoption came at the beginning of the Great Recession that had a significant impact of Tyrone and Fayette County. Read More»
