At its Oct. 3 meeting, the Holly Springs Town Council approved a development plan amendment for Main Street Square, allowing for a one-story building.
The council had tabled a decision at a previous meeting to allow the applicant to make additional modifications to the building elevations. At that meeting, the council had voiced concerns that the building did not feature enough decorative elements to be consistent with other buildings in Main Street Square and that the height was not compatible with the building on the other side of Werrington Drive.
The applicant made revisions based on the council discussion, revising building material color, and adding larger windows, additional awnings, decorative stone banding and brick insets, and roofline variation.
Also at the meeting, the Holly Springs Skyhawks presented a $1,000 check to the town Parks and Recreation Department for future enhancements at a field at the Jefferson L. Sugg Farm at Bass Lake Park used by the group for flying radio controlled aircraft. The group thanked the town for partnering with them and facilitating the first annual Wings over Springs event last month. The Skyhawks also presented a $400 check to Meg’s Smile Foundation.
The mayor proclaimed October as Bullying Prevention Month in Holly Springs, as requested by Youth Thrive, a partnership aimed at creating better conditions for Wake County youth. The mayor also proclaimed October as Community Planning Month, recognizing the participation and dedication of both staff and the volunteer members of the town Planning Board and Board of Adjustment.
