Pittsboro Matters Lawsuit Forces Chatham Park
Investors to Seek New Re-Zoning Request
Public Hearing Monday, November 24, 7:00 PM
Historic Chatham County Courthouse
Pittsboro Matter’s lawsuit challenging significant deficiencies in the June re-zoning approval for Chatham Park has resulted in the developers having to undergo a new re-zoning authorization. as they seek to add 48 new acres to the project and change language in the Master Plan. This action requires a new series of reviews, starting with a public hearing set for November 24. Following this public hearing, the revised plan will be subject to reviews by the Pittsboro Town Planning Board and Board of Commissioners.
The Town Board has the authority to make changes to the revised plan before proceeding with any new re-zoning authorization. They could reconsider previous recommendations to designate 30% of the development as natural areas, and impose a 2000-foot buffer along the Haw River as the town’s land use plan recommends.
HRA has urged much greater protections of stream buffers and forests for this massive development adjacent to the
Haw River and Jordan Lake
