BUNCOMBE COUNTY MOVING TOWARD ZONING
Only 24 of 100 counties in North Carolina do not have zoning. Watauga is one of those 24. Buncombe is another, the largest of the unzoned counties.
But as of this coming Tuesday night, Buncombe's era as an unzoned county will probably come to an end, as a majority of three commissioners have already signaled that they intend to vote for a comprehensive zoning ordinance.
Cue the pitchfork-wielding masses.
The commissioners are expecting a big crowd Tuesday night. Duh.
