Public can sound off on Raleigh building projects

— City Councilors this week wasted no time scheduling public hearings for a set of rezoning projects, mostly for new residential development.
Councilor and Mayor Pro Tem John Odom grouped the four rezoning cases into two sets.

The first were both residential projects in northeast Raleigh, one on Forestville Road and the other on Louisburg Road. Council approved scheduling a public hearing for each project at its Nov. 4 meeting.

The second set included another residential development along with a new office development. The residential project, located in northwest Raleigh on Globe Road, is technically located in Durham County.

If Raleigh were to develop that land, the city would first have to annex it. Council approved a public hearing to be held Nov. 4 for the project.

The office development would be housed on what are now two residential properties on Sandy Forks Road near Spring Forest. The public hearing for this project was also scheduled for Nov. 4.
