Holly Springs soon could see a new neighborhood for residents age 55 and older.
The Holly Springs Town Council approved a rezoning allowing for the age-restricted neighborhood at its Feb. 4 meeting. The rezoning involved about 120 acres south of Holly Springs New Hill Road, west of Green Oaks Parkway.
The council also approved a tree removal plan involving a couple dozen trees, subject to required environmental permits from the state and federal government, for an area near the S. Main Street / N.C. 55 intersection and future hospital. A 19,143-square-foot office building is proposed at the location.
Also at the meeting:
- Newly appointed Holly Springs Planning Board Member Thomas Urquhart took the oath of office.
- Staff discussed upcoming Census 2020 activities and promotions.
- The council ratified the sales contract for the purchase of 55.9 acres off Cass Holt Road for a future park.
- The council discussed current and future ways to partner with Wake County to mitigate malodors from the landfill.
- Marcus Kinrade, Wake County revenue director, discussed the recent property appraisal process for Wake County.
- Mayor’s Youth Advisory Board members proposed expanding the reach of Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA) to students who are not involved in the club by hosting an entrepreneurship contest/summit for local students.
