Neighborhood for Ages 55+ Moves Forward

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.
