Matters got heated early into the Pulaski County Board of Supervisors meeting Monday night, as the board discussed a petition by the county to amend a section of their Zoning Ordinance.
The specific request was to clarify the definition for “Dwelling Commercial Apartment,” and add the use to the Planned Industrial District (PID) as a Special Use Permit. Interim Community Development Director Danny Wilson gave the presentation, which concerned the housing for employee trainers, who will come in from out of the country for the upcoming Red Sun Farms out of Mexico.
According to Wilson, as Pulaski County recruits international companies, there is a need for housing on site for trainers and workers who come to the county to assist with startup operations. For Red Sun Farms, a maximum of 40 workers will be provided for by on site housing.
The proposed definition for that section specified that the building should be subordinate to the main property usage, and located on the same property, while only one building can be constructed per business. The proposition also included other requirements, which specified that the building could reach a maximum height of two stories, and a maximum size of 5,000 square feet.
