BAILEY — The Nash County Board of Commissioners has rezoned land in preparation for a subdivision.

During their Oct. 4 meeting in Nashville, commissioners voted to rezone a 30.5-acre tract of land on Needham Road in the Green Pond community northeast of Bailey from R-40 single-family residential to RA-20 conditional zoning for development of the 37-lot Whitley Crossing Phase 2 subdivision.

The property, owned by the Barnes Land Corp., is immediately adjacent to three other subdivisions that were similarly rezoned this year to RA-20 conditional designations: the Williams Grove subdivision to the south, the Whitley Crossing subdivision to the west and the Strickland Road phase 1 subdivision to the north.

The approved sketch plan proposes to develop the 37 lots along two new interior roads that connect with the previously approved Whitley Crossing subdivision to the west and provide stub road connections to undeveloped properties to the east and south.

In another zoning issue, the board voted unanimously to amend the county’s unified development ordinance to require a conditional zoning district for private campgrounds and recreational vehicle parks in the A1 agricultural zone.

Previously, the UDO allowed the development of private campgrounds and RV parks in the A1, RC rural commercial and GC general commercial districts subject to required development standards and a staff-level administrative review.

But the Nash County Technical Review Committee requested the change to require the more extensive process of public hearing and commissioner approval in the A1 district.

“The A1 zoning district is the largest district within the county’s planning jurisdiction and, because of its size, it contains a diverse variety of development conditions ranging from large, undeveloped agricultural tracts to suburban-type residential subdivisions,” said Planning Director Adam Tyson.

“Although many locations within the A1 zone are likely suitable for private campgrounds or RV parks,” Tyson said, “there are some locations — particularly near or adjacent to existing residential development — where additional reviews or developmental conditions could help ensure their compatibility with the surrounding area.”
