Recognize the 100th Anniversary of Women Gaining the Right to Vote and the Founding of the League of Women Voters

Initiated By: Pat Adams, League of Women Voters of North Carolina Action Proposed: Adopt the Resolution Description: Dear Commissioner, Thank you for your service to the people of your county, the state and yes, our nation. The League of Women Voters, a non-partisan organization that includes women and men, founded in February, 1920, has as its mission Empowering Voters. Defending Democracy . We strongly advocated then and now for full participation in the voting process and educating voters on the issues. This year marks the one hundredth anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution giving women the vote. As you are aware, it had to be ratified by two-thirds of the states and this was not accomplished until August 18, 1920, when Tennessee cast its vote of support. Tennessee was the last of 36 states to ratify and had it not been for a young East Tennessee lawyer member of the House of Representatives, who after receiving a letter from his widowed mother imploring him to vote for suffrage, changed his vote on the third reading of the bill, the 19th amendment would not have been ratified at that time. This is but one historic example of the importance of one vote; one elected official who dared to be courageous and do that which is just and right.
Tagged Passions:recognition, legal, voting, historic, suffrage, and voting rights

Leagues across the country, along with numerous other organizations, will be commemorating this 100th anniversary throughout 2020. The League of Women Voters of North Carolina invites you to be a part of this most important commemoration specifically through the passage of the attached resolution. We believe this action will raise awareness of the importance of voting and increase understanding that the vote did not come easily to many. Your action will also provide the opportunity to enhance civic education as well as reminding all of us of the privilege we enjoy from living in a Democracy.

Your vote on the resolution may occur at a time of your choosing. We suggest that it be Page 32 of 115 done in early 2020. If possible, please let me know when the vote will take place or if you need additional information as soon as possible. We will urge League members and friends in your surrounding area to be there at the time of your board s vote. Thank you for your consideration of our request to pass this important resolution.

Description of the Subject Property:

The subject property consists of a 37.78 acre portion of a larger, approximately 377 acre tract of land located at 7907 Buck Deans Rd, Middlesex, NC 27557 on both sides of Buck Deans Road at its intersection with Childrens Home Road. The site is just north of and immediately adjacent to the Town of Middlesex s extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ). The property is the site of the Free Will Baptist Children s Home campus, which was established there in 1920. The Home is a tax exempt, non-profit organization which operates an on-campus residential care program, a family foster care and adoption program, as well as before/after school and summer programs for community children. The subject property is located in the Neuse River Basin, but it is not located in a regulated floodplain or a watershed protection overlay district. Although the larger tract includes stream features, they are not located within the designated portion of land. The 21.43 acres of the subject property located on the west side of Buck Deans Road is zoned A-1 (Agricultural), while the 16.35 acres located on the east side of Buck Deans Road is zoned R-40 (Single-Family Residential). Page 36 of 115
Tagged Passions:streets, agriculture, taxes, Taxes, zoning, program, watershed, property, and education

The Nash County Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) classifies the Free Will Baptist Children s Home for land use purposes as an orphanage. It is considered a legal, nonconforming land use meaning that it was lawfully established and may certainly be continued, but it does not conform to all the UDO s current zoning requirements.

Tagged Passions:ordinance, legal, development, zoning, Development, and UDO

For instance, an orphanage would currently only be permitted in the A-1 (Agricultural) Zoning District with the required issuance of a special use permit by the Board of Adjustment and it is not a land use permitted at all in the R-40 (Single-Family Residential) Zoning District.

In celebration of its upcoming 100th anniversary in 2020, the Home plans to construct two new cottage dormitories, however, the restrictions placed on nonconforming land uses limit efforts to alter or expand the existing campus by requiring:

Tagged Passions:agriculture and zoning

(1) No relocation of any part of the nonconforming use to any portion of land not

previously occupied by such use; (2) No addition of structures that do not conform to the current dimensional requirements (ex. minimum building setbacks or density requirements); and
Tagged Passions:Homebuilder

(3) No increase in the total amount of land area devoted to the nonconforming use.

Description of the Rezoning Request:

The Free Will Baptist Children s Home Inc., the applicant and property owner, has submitted General Rezoning Request Z-191201 to rezone the subject property from A-1 (Agricultural) and R-40 (Single-Family Residential) to OI (Office Institutional). The OI (Office Institutional) Zoning District is specifically intended to accommodate public and institutional land uses such as the Home as well as various other limited support retail and commercial services and higher density residential land uses. An excerpt from the Table of Permitted Uses found in UDO Article IX, Section 9-3 listing all the land uses allowed for development in the proposed OI Zoning District is included with this report. The only other general OI Zoning Districts located within Nash County s planning jurisdiction are the Nash Community College campus on N Old Carriage Road and the Nash Correctional Institution on US Highway 64A, both of which serve a public purpose for the benefit of the community similar to the Children s Home.

Approval of the request would have three primary impacts on the subject property:

(1) The Free Will Baptist Children s Home would be recognized as a permitted

land use; Page 37 of 115

(2) The specific restrictions placed on nonconforming land uses would no longer apply, meaning that the layout of the campus could be altered or expanded within the designated zoning boundary; and

(3) The applicable minimum building setback distances would be reduced as

(5) The subject property has significant spatial separation from any surrounding,

Spot Zoning Analysis:
Tagged Passions:development, zoning, and Development

Approval of General Rezoning Request Z-191201 could be considered spot zoning because the subject property would be the only tract in the local area to be zoned OI (Office Institutional), however, it could also be reasonable spot zoning established in the public interest because:

Tagged Passions:zoning and property

(1) The subject property is the site of an existing institutional land use that has served a

public purpose at this location for the benefit of the community for nearly 100 years. (2) Approval of the request benefits the existing Free Will Baptist Children s Home by recognizing it as a permitted land use, while any potential impacts to the local area Page 38 of 115
Tagged Passions:recognition and property

will be mitigated by the significant separation distance between the subject property and the nearest surrounding development.

No additional detail provided

Tagged Passions:development, Development, and property

(3) The relatively large size of the subject property (37.78 acres) demonstrates that the

Tagged Passions:property

intention of the request is to establish a new zoning district, rather than a small, isolated spot zone.

Tagged Passions:zoning

(4) The request is consistent with the recommendations of the Nash County Land

Development Plan for the reasons established above. TRC Recommendation: The Nash County Technical Review Committee (TRC) considered General Rezoning Request Z-191201 on November 27, 2019 and recommended APPROVAL based on its determination that the request is reasonable, in the public interest, consistent with the recommendations of the Nash County Land Development Plan, and reasonable spot zoning. Planning Board Recommendation: The Nash County Planning Board considered General Rezoning Request Z-191201 on December 16, 2019. No members of the public, other than representatives for the applicant, attended the meeting or addressed the Board with regard to this request. The Planning Board voted unanimously to recommend: (1) APPROVAL of Consistency Statement A below finding the request to be

reasonable, in the public interest, consistent with the recommendations of the Nash County Land Development Plan, and reasonable spot zoning; and

Description of the Subject Property:

The subject property consists of a 0.8 acre portion of a tract of land owned by Dennis R. Langley and located at 7442 S NC Highway 58, Elm City, NC 27822 south of Sandy Cross and Interstate I-95 and west of the Nash County Miracle Park at Coopers on Joyner Road. The property includes an existing commercial structure that was previously used as a convenience store and was considered a legal, nonconforming land use in the RA-40 (Single-Family Residential) Zoning District until the store ceased operation and the nonconforming land use status expired. In December 2009, the Board of Commissioners rezoned the subject property at the request of the property owner from RA-40 to RC-CU (Rural Commercial Conditional Use) to allow the reuse of the commercial structure specifically as an arcade or game room (coin-operated amusement). The subject property is located in the Suburban Growth Area and was not designated in the Nash County Land Development Plan for intentional commercial development. For Page 50 of 115
Tagged Passions:rural, legal, development, zoning, transportation, parks, Development, property, commercial, and growth

that reason, the conditional use rezoning process allowed the Board to attach conditions to the commercial use of the site in order to ensure its compatibility with the surrounding area.

The conditions restricted the authorized use of the property to a coin-operated amusement business only, prohibited any gambling activities, limited the allowed hours of operation to no later than 10:00 p.m., and required that the property be used in accordance with the approved site plan (which proposed no substantial changes to the site or structure.)
Tagged Passions:business, gambling, zoning, property, and commercial

In July 2011, at the request of the property owner, the Board of Commissioners amended the approved conditions in order to permit the use of the property for a church in addition to the previously permitted coin-operated amusement business. After that, the Stairway to Heaven Biker Church was located on the subject property for several years.

The subject property is located in the Tar-Pamlico River Basin and the WS-IV-PA Watershed Protection Overlay District. It is not located in a regulated floodplain.

Description of the Rezoning Request:

Tagged Passions:zoning

Mr. Dennis R. Langley, the applicant and property owner, has submitted a request to amend Conditional Use Permit CU-091102 in order to add miscellaneous retail sales (party supplies/rentals and used merchandise store) as an additional permitted land use for the subject property.

No additional detail provided

Tagged Passions:sale, rental, property, and commercial

Mr. Langley has leased the subject property to Mr. Manuel Rodriguez to use for the sale of party supplies (including candy, hats, utensils, decorations, and accessories), table and chair rentals, and the sale of used merchandise (including furniture, household furnishings, and appliances.)

The applicant proposes two additions to the previously adopted conditions (which shall remain in effect) for the commercial use of the property:

Tagged Passions:leasing, sale, rental, property, and commercial

(1) The subject site shall not be used as a pawnshop. Used merchandise may be

resold at this location, but collateral-based loans may not be offered on pledges of tangible goods or personal property.

Tagged Passions:property

(2) No outdoor storage of goods or equipment shall be permitted on the subject

property. This RC-CU Zoning District was already determined to be a reasonable spot zone by the Board of Commissioners in 2009 because it allowed the reuse of an existing, viable commercial structure. This request proposes no changes to the current boundary of the zoning district or to the previously approved site plan. Page 51 of 115 TRC Recommendation: The Nash County Technical Review Committee (TRC) considered the request to amend Conditional Use Permit CU-091102 on November 27, 2019 and recommended APPROVAL based on its determination that the operation of the proposed commercial land use - miscellaneous retail sales (party supplies/rentals) should be no more intensive than the other land uses already approved for operation on the subject property (coin-operated amusement and/or church.)
Tagged Passions:equipment, sale, zoning, church, rental, property, and commercial

NOTE: At the time of the TRC s consideration, the request did not yet include the

proposed sale of used merchandise, which the applicant added later. However, the Planning Board was fully aware of that additional land use prior to its recommendation. Planning Board Recommendation: The Nash County Planning Board considered the request to amend Conditional Use Permit CU-091102 on December 16, 2019. No members of the public, other than a representative for the applicant, attended the meeting or addressed the Board with regard to this request. The Planning Board voted unanimously to recommend: (1) APPROVAL of Option A below including the adoption of conclusions with
Tagged Passions:planning and sale

supporting findings of fact for approval of the conditional use permit amendment; and

(2) APPROVAL of the request to amend the conditions of Conditional Use Permit CU- 091102 to allow miscellaneous retail sales (party supplies/rentals and used merchandise store) on the subject property. Suggested Motions:

Tagged Passions:sale, rental, property, and commercial

MOTION 1: ADOPT CONCLUSIONS WITH SUPPORTING FINDINGS OF FACT:

I move that the Nash County Board of Commissioners adopt Option A or B (choose one from below) related to Conditional Use Permit CU-091102.

Option A : Conclusions with Supporting Findings of Fact for APPROVAL:

(1) The proposed development will not materially endanger the public health or

safety because: Page 52 of 115 (a) None of the land uses specifically approved for operation on the subject property typically pose a known threat to the public health or safety.
Tagged Passions:health, development, Development, and property

(b) There are no substantial physical changes proposed either to the subject

property or to the existing commercial structure in relation to the proposed development.

Tagged Passions:development, Development, property, and commercial

(2) The proposed development will not substantially injure the value of adjoining

or abutting property because: (a) Any of the land uses specifically approved for operation on the subject property
Tagged Passions:development, Development, and property

would be conducted inside the already existing commercial structure.

No additional detail provided

Tagged Passions:commercial

(b) The conditional use nature of the development ensures that the permitted use

of the subject property will be limited to coin-operated amusement, church, and/or miscellaneous retail sales only and that the property may only be
Tagged Passions:sale, development, church, Development, and property

developed in accordance with the approved site plan.

No additional detail provided

(3) The proposed development will be in harmony with the area in which it is to

be located because: (a) The subject property has historically been used for commercial purposes as a convenience store even prior to the adoption of zoning regulations.
Tagged Passions:regulation, development, zoning, Development, property, and commercial

(b) The conditional use nature of the development ensures that the permitted use

of the subject property will be limited to coin-operated amusement, church, and/or miscellaneous retail sales only and that the property may only be

developed in accordance with the approved site plan.

No additional detail provided

(4) The proposed development will be in general conformity with the Nash

Tagged Passions:development and Development

County Land Development Plan (LDP) because:

(a) The LDP designates the subject property as Suburban Growth Area.
Tagged Passions:development, Development, property, and growth

(b) The LDP recognizes churches as a land use typically allowed within the

Suburban Growth Area. (c) The LDP also supports the existence of limited commercial land uses within the Suburban Growth Area that meet locational criteria.
Tagged Passions:recognition, church, commercial, and growth

(d) Although the subject property is not located at a major intersection, it does have

Tagged Passions:property

frontage along and direct access to S NC Highway 58, a major state-

maintained highway.

Tagged Passions:zoning

(e) Although the subject property is not located in proximity to any other existing

commercial land uses, it does contain an existing commercial structure that has historically been used for commercial purposes.
Tagged Passions:property and commercial

(f) Although the subject property does not have significant spatial separation from

the surrounding residential development, the specifically approved commercial land uses - coin-operated amusement and/or miscellaneous retail sales shall Page 53 of 115 be conducted inside the existing commercial structure with limited impact to the neighboring properties. --- OR ---
Tagged Passions:sale, development, Development, property, and commercial

Option B : Conclusions with Supporting Findings of Fact for DENIAL:

To deny the request to amend the conditional use permit, the Board needs only to

identify any one or more of the four standards listed above that the proposed land use - miscellaneous retail sales (party supplies/rentals and used merchandise store) fails to satisfy and then adopt findings of fact to support that conclusion based upon information
Tagged Passions:sale, rental, and commercial

presented during the public hearing.

MOTION 2: APPROVE OR DENY THE CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT AMENDMENT:

I move that the Nash County Board of Commissioners APPROVE or DENY (choose one) the request to amend the conditions of Conditional Use Permit CU-091102 as follows: Amended Conditions

(1) The approved use of the subject property shall be limited to coin-operated

amusement, church, and/or miscellaneous retail sales (party supplies/rentals and used merchandise store) only.

(2) The subject site shall not be used as a pawnshop. Used merchandise may be

To the Board of Commissioners Nash County Nashville, North Carolina We have audited the financial statements of the governmental activities, the business-type activities, each major fund, and the aggregate remaining fund information of Nash County for the year ended June 30, 2019. Professional standards require that we provide you with information about our responsibilities under generally accepted auditing standards, Government Auditing Standards, and the Uniform Guidance, as well as certain information related to the planned scope and timing of our audit. We have communicated such information in our letter to you dated April 3, 2019. Professional standards also required that we communicate to you the following information related to our audit.

Significant Audit Findings

Qualitative Aspects of Accounting Practices
Tagged Passions:audit

Management is responsible for the selection and use of appropriate accounting policies. The significant accounting policies used by Nash County are described in Note 1 to the financial statements. The County implemented Statement of Governmental Accounting Standards (GASB Statement) No. 88, Certain Disclosures Related to Debt, Including Direct Borrowings and Direct Placement in the fiscal year ended June 30, 2019. We noted no transactions entered into by the Nash County during the year that were both significant and unusual, and of which, under professional standards, we are required to inform you, or transactions for which there is a lack of authoritative guidance or consensus. All significant transactions have been recognized in the financial statements in the proper period.

Accounting estimates are an integral part of the financial statements prepared by management and are based on management s knowledge and experience about past and current events and assumptions about future events. Certain accounting estimates are particularly sensitive because of their significance to the financial statements and because of the possibility that future events affecting them may differ significantly from those expected. There were no significant estimate(s) or assumptions noted during the audit. The disclosures in the financial statements are neutral, consistent, and clear. Certain financial statement disclosures are particularly sensitive because of their significance to the financial statement users. There are no such disclosures identified. Page 81 of 115

Difficulties Encountered in Performing the Audit

We encountered no significant difficulties in dealing with management in performing and completing our audit. Corrected and Uncorrected Misstatements Professional standards require us to accumulate all known and likely misstatements identified during the audit, other than those that are trivial, and communicate them to the appropriate level of management. Management has corrected all such misstatements. In addition, none of the misstatements detected as a result of audit procedures and corrected by management were material, either individually or in the aggregate, to each opinion unit s financial statements taken as a whole. Disagreements with Management For purposes of this letter, professional standards define a disagreement with management as a financial accounting, reporting, or auditing matter, whether or not resolved to our satisfaction, that could be significant to the financial statements or the auditor s report. We are pleased to report that no such disagreements arose during the course of our audit. Management Representation
Tagged Passions:finance, procedure, audit, and financial report

We have requested certain representations from management that are included in the management representation letter dated November 26, 2019.

Management Consultations with Other Independent Accountants In some cases, management may decide to consult with other accountants about auditing and accounting matters, similar to obtaining a second opinion on certain situations. If a consultation involves application of an accounting principle to the governmental unit s financial statements or a determination of the type of auditor s opinion that may be expressed on those statements, our professional standards require the consulting accountant to check with us to determine that the consultant has all the relevant facts. To our knowledge, there were no such consultations with other accountants.

Other Auditing Findings or Issues

We generally discuss a variety of matters, including the application of accounting principles and auditing standards, with management each year prior to retention as Nash County s auditors. However, these discussions occurred in the normal course of our professional relationship and our responses were not a condition to our retention. Please refer to the compliance section of the audit report for a summary of the audit findings related to Medicaid.

We compared and reconciled the supplementary information to the underlying accounting records used to prepare the financial statements or to the financial statements themselves.
