Group: Let rules on billboards be

Staff WriterMarch 26, 2009 

— The Inter Neighborhood Council approved a resolution opposing changes in Durham's billboard ordinance. One neighborhood voted against it; three didn't vote.

The council, meeting Tuesday night, also approved a resolution favoring a change in Durham's neighborhood protection overlay ordinance such that any zoning-change request within an overlay would generate an automatic protest petition.

The delegates also agreed to reschedule their next meeting to allow a vote on a resolution favoring an independent survey of the Jordan Lake watershed boundary in southwest Durham County before the county commissioners' public hearing on the matter April 13.
