767 NHC Developer Seeks Continuance – No Vote on April 23rd

04/18/2024 6:11 PM | Christina Maggi (Administrator)

Seeking more time to respond to the objections of the Haw Creek community and City leaders, developer Kevin Jackson has pulled consideration of the ‘Meadows at Haw Creek’ development from Tuesday’s City Council agenda. Instead, the public hearing and vote has been rescheduled for Tuesday, June 11th, when this matter will come back to City Council. 

HCCA leaders participated in April 11th negotiations hosted by Mayor Manheimer and Councilwoman Sage Turner with Mr. Jackson’s team. It became evident their proposal to reduce the number of homesites from 95 to 94, plus no commitment to forest preservation, was wholly insufficient. 

That said, progress was made on other fronts with agreement on pedestrian improvements to link the 767 property with the new sidewalk ending at Bell Road and on the western side buffers. 

Based on the April 11th negotiations, the developer has sought a delay to consider redesign options. We remain hopeful a reasonable compromise can be negotiated that preserves the six-acre forest on the east end of the property. 

City Council will vote this Tuesday on the developer’s request for continuance until June 11th. It is likely this will be approved in order to provide him time to refine his plans.

As we learn more about the redesign proposals, we will share that information. In the meantime, please mark your calendar and plan to attend the June 11th City Council meeting.
