Robbins Updates Ordinances for Industrial Purposes

Changes to the Town of Robbins’ Unified Development Ordinance approved by the town’s Board of Commissioners on 9/14/23 opens the door for more economic development potential for Moore County’s northernmost municipality.

Previous ordinances had barred the inclusion of any stockyards, slaughterhouses or rendering facilities for animal processing for food; however, the board amended that ordinance to allow for stockyards and rendering facilities that process foods “fit for human consumption as outlined by the United States Department of Agriculture” in certain industrial zoned areas in the town.

“There are so many agribusiness ventures out there,” Town Manager Clint Mack said. “The analysis by the staff is that it could generate possible economic development opportunities. We’ve had multiple calls of interest this past year from Realtors to express their desires to possibly have clients if the zoning was changed.”

Updates included rules pertaining to applications for light industrial and heavy industrial zoning within the town’s table of permitted uses. Mack said that there had been certain uses not permitted for those two zoning districts.
