Jun 15, 2021
The Cumberland County Planning & Inspections Department will hold a drop-in public meeting regarding the Bethany Area Land Use Draft Plan. The purpose of the meeting is to hear and answer public comments or concerns. The meeting will take place on Tuesday, June 29 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Center Baptist Church at 4980 Wade-Stedman Road, Wade, NC 28395.
The plan, which reviews current conditions, such as demographics, zoning, and natural environments, is designed to guide future land use decision making and development of the area.
“We’re encouraging all residents and interested parties to attend this meeting,” Planning & Inspections Director Rawls Howard said. “Staff and appointed officials will consult this plan when making future recommendations and decisions for this area on rezoning cases and ordinance updates.”

Highway 13 (Goldsboro Road); and on the east by the South River/Sampson County.
