§42-3. Purpose
These regulations have been adopted in accordance with the “Henderson County 2020 Comprehensive Plan,” as
adopted and as may be amended, in order to promote the health, safety and general welfare of the community. These
regulations are designed to: (1) provide adequate light and air; (2) prevent the overcrowding of land; (3) avoid undue
concentration of the population; (4) lessen congestion on roads; (5) secure safety from fire, panic and dangers; and
(6) facilitate the efficient and adequate provision of transportation, water, sewerage, schools, parks and other public
requirements. The regulations shall be made with reasonable consideration, among other things, as to the character
of the district and its peculiar suitability for particular uses, and with a view to conserving the value of buildings and
encouraging the most appropriate use of land throughout the County. In addition, these regulations are made with
reasonable consideration to expansion and development of incorporated areas within the County, so as to provide for
their orderly growth and development. The neighborhood impact from certain uses will be mitigated through the use
of general and development standards which provide the flexibility to impose a higher level of site-specific
standards, dependent upon the degree of neighborhood impact
