Planning Board Goes Against Proposed Apex Development

Posted February 15, 2005 6:53 a.m. EST

— City officials gave preliminary thumbs-down for a proposed development project in Apex.

A developer wants to turn the Old Seagrove Tobacco Farm into a subdivision.

Opponents in nearby neighborhoods say there are already enough homes and traffic in the area.

They want to put a park there instead.

Monday night, the planning board recommended that town commissioners vote it down.

The commissioners will discuss it next month.
