Last night, the Buncombe County Commissioners approved upzoning one parcel from R-3 (Residential) to Commercial, but denied a request to upzone another from R-1 to R-3.
Brownie Newman was the only commissioner to vote against the more intensive upzone. Belcher, Mike Fryar, and David King voted against a motion to deny the trailer park dude his right to, as Fryar explained, “put three things on his property [with] his money.”
