Vance Co. Board of Adjustment votes down Kittrell landfill

Environmental, Sound Rivers

Posted on January 19th, 2021


After several hearings and many hours of testimony, the Vance County Board of Adjustment opted not to issue the land-use permit that would pave the way for a LCID (land clearing and inert debris) landfill adjacent to a rural, residential neighborhood. Sound Rivers’ Pamlico-Tar Riverkeeper Jill Howell, who testified about the potential environmental and water quality impacts during those hearings, considers the vote a “huge step in the right direction.”

NC Policy Watch’s Lisa Sorg examines the process and the board’s decision here.
