DOBSON — The Surry County Board of Commissioners gave the go-ahead to a rezoning they say could help further economic development efforts in the county.


Following a public hearing during which no one spoke, the board unanimously approved rezoning 6.25 acres on Holly Springs Road near its intersection with Reeves Mill Road.


County Planner Kim Bates told the board that the property is being purchased by Mountain River Trucking Co., and lies adjacent to the company’s existing property.


“It’s currently zoned residential, and Mountain River Trucking Co., wants to rezone it to manufacturing and industrial, the same as their property,” he said.


Bates said the trucking company, which sent no representatives to the meeting to address the board, has proposed to purchase the property from Carter Bank and Trust.


“The purchase is contingent on this rezoning being approved,” he said.


The property includes about 750 feet of road frontage on Holly Springs Road, and is expected to be used for access to Mountain River Trucking and parking.


After being told that the county’s planning board and planning staff has recommended approval, the board unanimously approved the rezoning on a motion by Commissioner Paul Johnson and with a second by Commissioner Jimmy Miller.


Commissioner Eddie Harris was absent.
