Vance Co. Board of Adjustment votes down Kittrell landfill

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.”
