Watauga Commissioners Hold Special Meeting Wednesday After Boone ETJ Abolished (2016-12-27 14:39:03)

Last week, the Town of Boone's Extra Territorial Jurisdiction authority ended after a December 21st decision by the North Carolina State Supreme Court that found an earlier law passed by the General Assembly was constitutional. As a result, the town has transferred Planning and Zoning Authority from the Town of Boone to Watauga County.

According to a press release, the Town of Boone has transferred to Watauga County all information regarding active planning applications and permits, fire inspections and code enforcement. The Town Of Boone is encouraging all ETJ residents and property owners to attend a Special Called Meeting of the Watauga County Board of Commissioners to obtain the most updated information possible. The special called meeting is Wednesday, December 28th, at 12:30 in the afternoon, in the Commissioners Board Room of the Watauga County Administration Building, 814 West King Street in Boone.
