*NOTE: On April 5, 2017, the Town Council took the following actions to encourage innovative, light industrial uses in the Millhouse Enterprise Zone. These actions created a new review process for the applicant. Instead of submitting a Special Use Permit following a Concept Plan, the applicant has submitted a Conditional Rezoning Application for review by the Town Council.

  • Create a new zoning category: Innovative, Light Industrial - Conditional Zoning District
  • Create a new review process for the Town Council to consider Conditional Rezoning Applications
  • Amend the Land Use Plan to designate approximately 60 acres along Millhouse Road as an Innovative, Light Industrial Opportunity Area
