An annexation request was submitted by the owners of approximately 24 acres at the intersection of Orange Grove Road and Eno Mountain Road. The owners and developers also submitted a request to rezone the property to Multi-Family Special Use, along with a development plan (Special Use Permit) to develop the site with townhouses.
The Special Use Permit shows 118 townhouse units arranged in 29 buildings. The existing house is proposed to be converted to a clubhouse and have amenities available to the development residents. The site layout is available in the documents section on this page, along with the traffic impact analysis.
One public hearing was scheduled to discuss the annexation, zoning, and Special Use Permit during one session. Speakers discussing aspects of the rezoning or development plan had to be sworn in as the review process was quasi judicial. The public hearing was closed on Oct. 17, 2013.
Following the close of the public hearing the adjacent mining operation Piedmont Minerals raised concerns about how their operations and permits might impact development on the north side of Eno Mountain Road. The Planning Board recommended approval of phases 1, 3 and 4, and asked the Board of Commissioners to reopen the public hearing on phase 2 to allow public discussion of the Piedmont Minerals concerns. The Board of Commissioners accepted the Planning Board recommendation. Phases 1, 3 and 4 of the project have been annexed, zoned and the development plan approved, with the requested waivers. A public hearing regarding phase 2 was held on Jan. 16, 2014 to discuss the concerns raised by Piedmont Minerals.
All phases of this development have been approved by the Board of Commissioners. Phases 1, 3 and 4 are permitted and under construction.
The developer has applied for a modification to encroach in the required buffers along the shared west property line with Carillon Assisted Living and the west property adjacent to the private street Cantrell Court. The encroachment is less than 2 feet 6 inches in all cases. The encroachment is for the construction of retaining walls. The work has already been completed, but requires town board authorization to remain.
