Hope Mills board to consider rezoning requests, extension of construction loan


HOPE MILLS — Two rezoning requests are on the agenda when the Hope Mills Board of Commissioners meet at 7 p.m. Monday at Town Hall.

The first case is a contiguous rezoning of 8.11 acres from a commercial planned service and retail district to more restrictive zoning. The property is at Waldo’s Beach and Camden roads. The request was submitted on behalf of CBMM properties and CJR Property Holdings, the owners of the property.

The second case is an initial zoning of 8.33 acres from an R-5 residential district to a more restrictive district. The property is at Hunting Ridge and Rockfish roads. The request was submitted by the town on behalf of Bridgeport Homes.

Anyone who wishes to speak about the rezoning of these properties must sign up before the start of the meeting with the town clerk. The board asks that comment be limited to three minutes for each speaker.

Under the consent agenda, the board is expected to approve a bid for tree clearance from Hall’s Tree Service. The town received state funding in the amount of $182,500 for clearing storm debris in and along Big Rockfish Creek and Little Rockfish Creek. Six qualifying bids were received, with Hall’s Tree Service submitting the lowest bid.

The board is expected to authorize the interim town manager to execute the contract with Hall’s.

Also under the consent agenda, the board will consider voting to extend the construction loan for the public safety building. According to Drew Holland, the town’s finance director, the extension is required because the building is not ready.

The new date to close the construction loan and for the U.S. Department of Agriculture to refund it will be July 13. The extension agreement will be submitted to the state Local Government Commission for approval at its June 6 meeting.

The board is expected to hear the latest on construction of the public safety building from architect Scott Garner.

Also on Monday’s agenda is recognition of the interim town manager for his completion of the University of North Carolina School of Government’s Municipal and County Administration Course.

The board also will consider nominees for town committees.
