The Holly Springs Town Council approved property rezonings among other business at its July 21 meeting. One rezoning involved two parcels totaling 43.31 acres along Holly Springs New Hill Rd., just west of the Ancient Oaks Drive entrance to the 12 Oaks subdivision. The properties, once a part of a planned unit development (PUD) that no longer exists, were rezoned from PUD to R-10 residential, which would allow for 3.25 dwelling units per acre.
The council also rezoned 14.87 acres off W. Holly Springs Rd. southeast of Oak Hall near the intersection with Blalock St. The rezoning removed the requirement for detached garages to be constructed with future homes; any future developer would be required to provide off-street parking for homes and to meet driveway length requirements. Minimum lot sizes did not change with the rezoning.
The council approved modifying the Unified Development Ordinance to allow communication relay towers by special exception use in the R-20 residential district zoning. As a special exception use, any proposal for a tower would be subject to review by the Planning Board and approval by the Town Council after a public hearing.
As part of the meeting’s consent agenda, the council entered into a two-year contract with Greenscape for landscaping services at town facilities, granted a six-month extension for the New Hill Place Apartments development plan and designated signatories for the Town’s accounts at Yadkin Bank.
