The Holly Springs Planning Commission has recommended approval to rezone a little over 3 acres along East Rope Mill Road to build 23 townhome units.
Developer Holly Springs SR Mix requested the rezoning of 3.087 acres Thursday from general commercial and mixed use, to general commercial and mixed use for the purpose of producing a small community of 23 townhome lots with a density of 7.45 units per acre, Holly Springs City Manager Rob Logan said. The 23 townhomes would be built along East Rope Mill Road near The Home Depot.
The planning commission also recommended approval of a request from Arty and Twyla Elliott to annex and rezone almost 11 acres along Hickory Road to create four lots for single family housing development. The two are requesting to rezone the property from agriculture to single family residential development to build four homes. The area in question is adjacent from J.B Owens park, which is near Harmony on the Lakes neighborhood. The two also requested a variance from the Holly Springs zoning ordinance to allow the use of road access to the houses.
The Holly Springs City Council will hold public hearings for these requests at 7 p.m. during its Oct. 4 meeting at city hall, 3235 Holly Springs Parkway.
