Pittsboro This Week: Chatham Park’s tree protection plan, rezoning on Chatham Business Drive, and more

Notes from the Pittsboro Board of Commissioners meeting on Monday, April 8

A crowd of roughly 50 people gathered in Town Hall for the Pittsboro Board of Commissioners meeting Monday. The meeting, which lasted nearly three and a half hours, included discussions of the Chatham Park tree protection plan, a town ordinance which prevented glass containers from being used for special events, rezoning for a property on Chatham Business Drive, a preliminary plat approval for a property on Cedar Lane and sewer allocation for Mill South Homes. The meeting began shortly after 7 p.m. with a prayer, the pledge of allegiance and a public comment section. Several residents from Potterstone Village came and spoke out against the proposed concrete plant, citing its noise and potential environmental and health risks. One of the speakers provided the commissioners with a petition from 250 voting-aged residents of the development, asking for the concrete plant to be moved.
