Moore County LogoFrom billboards to sewers, fracking to zoning, water to taxes, Moore County department heads worked their way through a raft of questions posed by the Greater Seven Lakes Community Council [GSLCC] during a Thursday, August 15 meeting with the Moore County Board of Commissioners.

As GSLCC President Jack Stevens explained at the opening of the meeting, the group brings together the Presidents of the landowners associations serving Seven Lakes West, Seven Lakes North and South, and McLendon Hills, as well as the President of the Seven Lakes Business Guild. The purpose is "to identify concerns that are common to our communities and present them in a unified manner," Stevens said.

You'll find several articles below that report on individual topics covered in the joint session, including: water and sewer, zoning and billboards, tax revaluation, fire insurance districts, and fracking for shale gas.

 

Saunders: Get involved

Commissioner Randy Saunders closed out the evening's discussion by urging citizens to become more involved in County decision making.

Noting that the crowd of more than one hundred in the Great Hall of the Community Center dwarfed the crowd at a typical Commissioners' meeting, Saunders said: "All of the issues that we talked about tonight, other than revaluation, we have discussed at our meetings for months."

"This kind of input, unfortunately, is usually needed then, at those regular meetings," Saunders said.

"Come to those meetings. Come be a part of the decision, before it is made. Because, once the gavel drops, the decision is made."

He noted that the Commissioners would soon be taking up the Unified Development Ordinance and the new Land Use Plan. The Board will discuss both during a day-long critical issues summit on September 19 and may hold a public hearing on the documents in October. All Commissioners meetings are open to the public.
