Fayetteville Planning Commission members will meet in a work session next month to discuss updating its zoning ordinance and look at changes that might need to be addressed in other areas.

The work session is scheduled for 4 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 26, one hour ahead of its regular February meeting, at the Fayetteville Municipal Building.

Other concerns tentatively included on the work session’s agenda include changes that may need to be made in regard to city ordinances regulating recreational vehicles (RV’s) as well as a myriad of other concerns, including tiny houses, solar panels, and charging ports for electric vehicles.

The work session was called for during the planning commission’s regular January session Tuesday evening last week.

In action taken during that meeting, planners approved a petition granting permission for residential living quarters in a commercial district. The quarters will be located on the second story of what was once the Fayetteville Water Department at 104 West Maple Street. Similar arrangements are allowed under existing city ordinances with the commission’s approval.

According to discussion, the first floor of the property, located at street level, will be used for an embroidery and sewing business that will be a part of The Flower House. The basement level of the building will be used for storage.

Additionally, planners gave their approval to the minor plat subdivision of property in the Urban Growth Area at the corner of Childress and Johnson roads. The subdivision of property will see one lot divided from property there, reducing it from seven acres to approximately five and a half acres.
