Mebane has received four subdivision proposals for townhouses and single-family homes along North First Street (North NC 119) between Stagecoach Road and the Mill Creek subdivision that could add almost 1,000 new homes in the city.
The city’s planning board heard about two of the projects – the two smallest among the four – during this week’s monthly meeting (see story on left, below).
The board unanimously recommended both to the city council, which will consider the rezoning requests at its July 11 meeting.
Two others – one of which would be one of the largest in the city – are still pending.
Officials attributed part of the sudden popularity of the area to the opening of the NC119 bypass, which provides a more direct, and speedy, path between the northern stretches of the city and I-85/40, thus opening the possibility that commuters will be able to reach their work and home destinations much faster than they previously could.
