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. A consulting firm has been hired with the help of a grant acquired by Stokes County. Data are being gathered from all communities within the county and will soon be shared at workshops scheduled in Danbury, Walnut Cove and King.
The Danbury workshop will be held on Tuesday, April 1, 2014, between the hours of 10:00am-6:00pm at the county administration building, 3rd floor conference room. Residents will have the opportunity to ask questions and to offer planning ideas. Go to the special planning website http://stokes2035.com for more detail.
The Town Council recently discussed 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 or walking nearby. NCDOT and law enforcement officials are being consulted as we work through this problem. Please help us out.
Planning and Zoning Board Meeting--The Planning and Zoning Board meets on an as-needed basis, there are no meetings scheduled at this time.
The Town is seeking applicants to fill a vacancy on the Danbury Planning and Zoning Board. Applicants must live within the town limits. If interested, contact Town Hall 593-2002
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.
