Graham’s city council agreed to a new single-family home subdivision with about 200 houses in the fast-growing southern part of the city. The development would be situated between Lacy Holt Road and Rockwood Drive on about 57 acres.
The council did modify the proposal to eliminate a connection to Wendy Drive, leaving the subdivision as “its own development,” in the words of mayor Jerry Peterman.
Council member Jennifer Talley wanted to consider larger lots for the development, which could be as small as 6,000 square feet, under the proposal considered by the council. Talley and councilman Ricky Hall voted against the final proposal. Peterman, Chip Turner, and Melody Wiggins voted to approved the subdivision, 3-2.
The developer previously described to the planning board that the single-family homes would be about 2,400 to 2,800 square feet on lots ranging from 6,000 to 10,000 square feet; the price point was estimated to be $300,000.
