F’ville places moratorium on manufacturing applications

The Fayetteville City Council at a called meeting Sept. 28 voted to place a 90-day moratorium on applications for rezoning and other uses in the city’s manufacturing districts. The moratorium will give city staff time to review the ordinance for any needed changes.

Commenting on the moratorium, city manager Joe Morton in a Sept. 27 memo noted that city staff reviewed several of the allowable uses in the M-1 and M-2 zoning classification subsequent to a recent special exception application for a waste transfer station.

Morton in the memo said staff had recommended that the council consider a 90-day moratorium to allow time for a thorough review and to propose any needed changes to the ordinances.

Morton said the moratorium has no effect on the application for the transfer station.
