National Fisherman

The York County Board of Supervisors will vote Tuesday whether to set in motion a process that could change the rezoning of the York Point subdivision to prohibit farming and accessory apartments in the neighborhood.
 
The proposed zoning change would add and subtract numerous uses from what is acceptable in York Point, according to the York County Zoning Ordinance. Backyard chicken and horse keeping would still be allowed, however a special-use permit would be required. The current designation of York Point allows backyard chicken and horse keeping by right.
 
Other land uses currently allowed in York Point that would be prohibited under the new designation include commercial orchards or vineyards, forestry and accessory apartments. The change would add group homes with more than eight occupants and transitional homes as acceptable uses for property in York Point, however a special-use permit would be required for either of those.
