Dec. 10, Moore Co Planning on PUD, Area A

[From Save Our Sandhills (SOS) Attendance Dec. 10 important!]


Subject: Ventures “Pine Forest” subdivision between Highway 211 and Highway 73 in West.

Where will water come from with a 15- to 20-year timetable for total buildout?

Will water from other counties still keep flowing?

What happens during droughts?

How will herbicides and pesticides be kept from seeping into Nick’s Creek?

How will traffic be handled on local roads?

What are the real facts concerning the wastewater treatment plant – its safety, odor, maintenance?

In Cumberland County, documented problems have occurred. The Moore County Public Works has only recently developed standards and has no practical experience.

With so much area allotted for houses, businesses, roads, and golf courses, how will animals have corridors and native plants flourish?

This project is huge. It is 1,799 acres, of which 1,623 are being requested to be rezoned. This includes Nicks Creek, ultimately part of Carthage’s and Whispering Pines’ water supplies, which runs through the middle of the entire property from west to east, with small tributaries feeding it throughout the property. In all, a great deal of wetlands abound, all of which are crucial to the welfare of birds and other wildlife, as well as to rare and unusual native plants.

Planned are two separate communities – a resort hotel and residential community with a neighborhood retail center, as well as a gated residential community. These communities will include:

• Up to 890 residential and/or hotel rooms
• 2 championship golf courses and a short course
• Golf clubhouses for each course
• A resort spa, conference center, and fitness center
• A retail and office center.

Please attend the Planning Board meeting on December 10 at 6 P.M., Moore County Historic Courthouse – 2nd Floor
