Halifax County Supervisors approve two conditional use permits

SoVaNow.com / April 10, 2014
Halifax County Supervisors on Monday night approved two conditional use permits. The first on a request for a 199 foot telecommunications tower in ED-2 on the south side of James D. Hagood Highway about one-third mile west of its intersection with Rodgers Chapel Road for Cellco Partners, DBA Verizon Wireless came after only one person, a representative with Verizon, spoke in favor of the permit during an earlier advertised public hearing.

The second permit was granted to Denise and David Hudson which will allow them to operate a bed and breakfast and a farm store with a teaching facility located at 14242 River Road. Only one person, Denise Hudson spoke during the public hearing, but according to Planning Head Robbie Love, the Hudson’s application had drawn two letters of opposition with 23 others supporting their request.

Several supporters of the application pointed to the amount of work the couple has done to promote agricultural efforts throughout the county.

ED-3 Supervisor Ray Owen said the Hudsons “have done a tremendous amount of work for the county” and their operation would be a definite plus for Halifax County.

The board set a public hearing for its May meeting on an application from David Rather for a conditional use permit which would allow him to operate a taxidermy shop at 1151 Woodbourne Road in ED-4.
