[ARCHIVED] 2018 Market Preliminary Plans Approved

At its June 2 meeting, the Holly Springs Town Council approved the preliminary subdivision plan for 2018 Market, the residential portion of the Rhamkatte Village Planned Unit Development.

To be located on approximately 71.5 acres at the intersection of Holly Springs and Bass Lake roads, the residential portion of the development includes 188 single-family detached lots and 151 townhome lots. More than 21 acres of open space is to be spread throughout the development.

Earlier this year, the council approved a major amendment to the development, which adjusted the residential and commercial portions, resulting in an increase in residential land area and the maximum number of residential units, street improvements that brought the development up to current Town standards, and an adjustment to perimeter landscape buffers. The preliminary plan approved June 2 meets the requirements set earlier in the year.

Councilmembers Jimmy Cobb, Tim Sack and Linda Hunt Williams voted in favor of approving the preliminary plan; Councilmembers Cheri Lee and Hank Dickson did not.

Earlier in the meeting, the council approved annexing 58 acres located along Holly Springs Rd. that will be part of the project.

Also at the meeting, council members and the Town manager complimented staff on the North Main Athletic Complex, which is still under construction but open for Salamanders baseball games.

“I don't think people expected it to look as professional as it did,” Lee said, who attended the first game. “It was just a wonderful time.”

Town Manager Chuck Simmons thanked residents for their patience as certain aspects of facility remain under construction, particularly sections funded by a Wake County grant that recently was awarded to the Town.

The council approved $65,780 for implementing the Town’s own police records management system and entered into a contract with Jan-Pro for cleaning services for Town facilities.

The Holly Springs High School Colla Voce choir opened the meeting with music, celebrating the group’s recent trip to New York City to perform at Carnegie Hall as part of the Heritage Worldstrides Festival. Colla Voce, the premier chorus of Holly Springs High directed by Jenny Patchett, has won many awards in recent years, including achieving a superior rating at the Music Performance Adjudication at Meredith College in March. The high school’s beginning and intermediate choirs also received superior ratings at the same event.

Also at the meeting, Robert Furth, the newly-appointed Holly Springs High School head football coach, introduced himself to the community.
