COUNCIL MEETING -- 9/24/14
1. The Town received a good report from the Auditor on its handling of town finances during the last fiscal year.
2. In a continuing effort to deal fairly with illegal signage, the Town Council decided on a policy of "gentle and tactful" enforcement with an emphasis on gaining voluntary compliance when possible. An inventory of all signs will be compiled before deciding on future action.
American Towers LLC has applied to the Federal Communications Commission to construct a 200 foot cell tower just outside the Danbury town limits on Seven Island Road. The Town of Danbury does not currently allow towers but the applicant will likely seek a zoning amendment. This process will be public. If you have comments or concerns about this proposal, call or email Town Hall (593-2002,
). Meetings will be announced via this web site and newspaper.
All Danbury residents are encouraged to get involved in the ongoing process of county-wide comprehensive planning. Stokes County has acquired a grant to help with the cost of this important project. Data are being gathered from all communities within the county for inclusion in the plan. A draft plan may be completed later this year. Go to the special planning website http://stokes2035.com for more detail.
The Town Council frequently discusses a concern for pedestrian safety as residents and visitors go about their business on Main Street. While the design of the street is unlikely to change, we can, as motorists, change our behavior. Not only is it dangerous for people, it has also been common for pets and wildlife to be killed on the street. Everyone is being asked to obey speed limits and to be alert for people and animals crossing the street. Please help us out.
Planning and Zoning Board Meetings--The Planning and Zoning Board meets on an as-needed basis.
Recycling in Danbury-- Danbury residents who are currently receiving garbage service are encouraged to take advantage of curbside recycling. This service occurs on an every-other-week basis. Recycling information can be found at www.wasteindustries.com and www.co.stokes.nc.us.
