Apex Planning Board Rejects Revised Seagroves Plan

Posted April 12, 2005 11:07 a.m. EDT

— The Apex planning board did not like a proposal to transform an historic piece of land into a housing subdivision.

In a 4-2 vote Monday, the board rejected a revised plan by the developer to build 42 townhomes and 123 single-family residences on the Seagroves tobacco farm complex.

Opponents said the plan will cause traffic tie-ups and ruin the historic site.

Even though the planning board does not recommend it, the town board of commissioners will have the final say in May.
