The Town of Wise Planning Commission will hold a public hearing at their regular meeting on May 6, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. in Council Chambers of the Wise Municipal Building located at 501 West Main Street, Wise, VA. When the meeting is called to order, and the public hearing is opened you or your designated representative may offer input on the proposed amendments to the Town of Wise Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Regulations (adopted March 23, 1987). The proposed amendments would add Section 8B - Regulations related to Blasting Within the Corporation Limits of the Town of Wise, Virginia. In general, the amendment would require public notice for all basting operations, allow blasting only during daytime hours, require all entities planning to blast in the corporation limits to have insurance equivalent to that required by DMME for surface blasting, monitor blasts with seismograph, limit blasting vibrations, and require owners of all structures within 500 feet to be offered a pre-blast survey of their structures.
